Day 343 – Goodbye 2012… Hello 2013
Happy New Year!!!
I managed to tick another item off my bucket list by welcoming in a new year, in what I think is one of the most beautiful an iconic harbours in the world… Sydney Harbour.
As friends opened the door and welcomed me into their apartment, I was greeted with the magnificent panoramic view of what McMahons Point has to offer.
Of course shortly after that the beer was flowing, and so were the tequila shots as I learnt the rules of the house. A boat cruising past the front door, 2 trains on the bridge or 2 rivercats on the harbour, 3 helicopters, 4 water taxis, 5 ferries, 6 Luna Park rides going at the same time, 7 harbour cruises, 9 sailboats or 10 seagulls on the edge of the pool all required a shot. Then there was the attempted re-creation of the Opera House from lime wedges… the things you do for fun!
The anticipation grew as the sun set, and the harbour filled with boats all wanting a front row seat to the fireworks spectacular that Sydney in renowned for. The early show looked more like a trial run, and was just a tease to the main event that let loose as soon as the clock struck midnight, and we said hello to 2013.
A massive welcome and thank you to all who have recently begun to follow my work. I have received so many wonderful comments in the last week. I have not had a chance to read all of them and check out your page, but I will make time by the end of the week. A huge thanks must go out to WordPress for featuring my site, along with those that have re-blogged posts on their site.
To my longtime followers, thank you for all your kind words and support in 2012. I hope I can keep things interesting in 2013, and continue to grow and push myself to get that awesome shot to share with you.
Best wishes for everyone for 2013.
