Martin Place was filled with people from all walks of life, toting their umbrellas and filled with emotion. The end of the speech was met with thunderous applause and a standing ovation.

It was a rather special moment on what feels like a historic day.

  1. I’m a very proud Australian today indeed. Good on Kevin Rudd, finally doing what is right.

  2. nice work, youve captured some priceless moments. Your becoming quite the photojournalist.

  3. Good to see you got out there.
    I went to Parliament House here in Canberra and I’ve never seen so much media in my life. Crazy.

  4. these a wonderful dan, i agree with angelo, you are really making a mark in your photojournalism

  5. hey dan, echoing the above comments to say you’re really doing your photojournalism thing, and i think you captured that it certainly felt like a significant day for those of us sitting in the crowds.
    also, just wondering.. what plugin/whatever do you use to display your flickr photos in the sidebar there?

  6. Hey Dan! Tiny world we live in – the two women in the second shot are family friends of ours up in Jabiru NT. Great shots to commemorate a great day. 🙂
