Journey by Dawn

This is Australia Part I: The Parade

This year, Australia Day was as colourful as ever, with hundreds of performers and spectators! Here are some of my captures with the Canon 800D camera and 50mm lens.

And even a keyboard with guitars!

In conclusion, very impressive colourful exposition! The second half of the day I spent in the immigration museum – learning about the first settlers in Australia that came from across the globe also listening to audio personal stories of people sharing their arrival to Australia journey.

See my next blog: This is Australia 2: Immigration History for photos and reflections. Coming up soon…
