75th Anniversary of the Sydney Harbour Bridge by 


The sky was overcast but the mood was bright & cheerful.

It was the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The year was 2007.

We all got bright green hats to wear & we walked & danced across the bridge to celebrate this anniversary of our favourite Aussie icon. It was a great atmosphere & a great day overall.

The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.

    And how appropriate was it that the guy with the Aussie flag shirt stood out above all others! :D

    Fantastic sight and capture, Michael!

  • That’s one of my favourite things in this shot. Thanks for the fave Donna. There’s great memories there. I can hear the music now.

    A green sea. Well taken Michael.

  • Thanks John. I still have the cap of course, to remind me of the day (as well as the photos). A friend who turned up later in the day missed out.
