Does My Bomb Look Big In This?

Happy New Fear!

On NYE, the partner and I went to see the fireworks, themed A Diamond Night in the Emerald City. The diamond was for the 75th anniversary of the Harbour Bridge, and the 'Emerald City' was a reference to the David Williamson play about Sydney... of course expanded with a little artistic license to include the Wizard of Oz stuff.

Here is the view from our compound of the 9pm fireworks, which ended with Dorothy's red sparkling slippers projected onto one of the Harbour Bridge pylons (faintly visible in the second image).





In between the two displays we got bored in the compound, but swathes of men lugging personal cases of VB kept us from wandering outside! Instead we took photos to document the occasion, the first is of the compound itself...







The midnight fireworks contained some dazzling new effects:









All in all, an entertaining night in a dazzlingly beautiful city. Shame Johnny Howard decided to announce that feminism is dead (no longer necessary) in the paper earlier in the day... it led to me re-theming the night: Happy New Fear.

Xmas Lights

We did the daggy Xmas Lights thing this year, and let me just say, it was totally surreal. Xmas Lights have come a long way since I was a kid! Imagine if these were YOUR neighbours!
