What can I say? Better than La Machine would sum it up. The biggest, craziest, best event I’ve ever photographed. Huge crowds everywhere. Every building, museum, street, and the entire waterfront filled from Kings Dock to Princes Dock. I felt so proud of the city and so honoured to photograph it. Thank you all for sharing my pictures on social media. I’m glad you like them. These are the photos from the final day. Later in the week, when I’ve properly slept, I may do a proper post to reflect on the event with my favourite photos. Right now I’m just trying to stay awake and tell the story. Enjoy.

    Pete, superb pictures as ever, you dont disappoint in conveying the atmosphere that must have been present. Obviously unhappy to be abroad whilst this happened at home, I’ve lived it through your pictures. A sincere thank you from me!

  5. Great shots. I only caught part of the Sunday show which I really regret now.

    I think the picture in front of the Liver Building will be the iconic memory of the event. Thanks for the chance to
    see more than the glimpse I had on Saturday evening.

  7. Excellent shots as ever Pete. I’m in Bangalore at the moment so am gutted that I missed the event but your shots tell the story perfectly. I’ll have to make do with shooting Bangalore life instead :0) (http://www.flickr.com/photos/stevelloyd/sets/72157629518897646/)
