A few snippets from my New Year’s Eve celebrations. Fireworks were watched, champagne was guzzled, and a lot of merriment ensued. I ended up taking two cameras for the night – my Diana Mini and Canon Sureshot. I only took a few shots on my Diana as it was nearing the end of the roll – those photos are mostly of friends so I won’t put them up here. These are from the second half of the night, which was spent at a party in the city (the first half of the night was spent at a house party in the ‘burbs). The venue in the city was quite close to where the fireworks were happening so we were able to pop out just before midnight to watch them. We had a fairly obstructed view, but it was still worthwhile viewing. I think that there’s something quite cathartic about ringing in the new year with fireworks. Anyway, you can find more photos after the jump. They don’t really make sense but hey, the best nights hardly ever do.
Too much revelry + permanent markers = some interesting body art.
I’d also like to shout out the lovely people who found my phone in the taxi and then returned it to me the next day. I’m sure the last thing you’d want to do on New Years Day is chase up a complete stranger. But they did and I’m all the more grateful for it. I hope you all rang in 2011 just the way you wanted to – be it out watching fireworks or snug up at home. Without getting too sappy, I’d just like to thank everyone who reads/follows/comments on this blog. I really do appreciate all of your support. Here’s to a stellar 2011!
