Please allow me a moment of sisterly pride, a capture from the citizenship ceremony held on Australia Day in 2007 in the Brisbane City Hall (posted for a challenge). I was there to see my sister and many others become new Australian citizens and had a good vantage from a balcony to capture some precious memories. Here, the projected lyrics of the Australian national anthem helped everyone sing along. (Olympus E-300 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 40mm [80mm in full-frame equivalent], f/3.5, 1/25 sec., ISO 200, indoor lighting, monopod)
