    OK, to clarify, this and a few of the following are not taken using my Canon SLR, these are taken using an Olympus Point n Push VH-510. It has some modes like panoramas, in camera HDR, fish eye, that sort of stuff. These were taken to not look real and just a bit of fun. The best of which I'll include in this thread, there was one already in the MCG.

    Another unreal one from the VH-510

    Hey Bob, great pics, nearly makes me want to go back to Sydney ( nearly )
    I was born in Cremorne, well thats what my birth certificate states.
    As for the 1988 NRL grand final, Terry Lamb ( Canterbury Bankstown )
    and British import Ellery Hanley ( Balmain ) who Lamb knocked out, have
    kissed and made up , Ellery happy for Lamb to sign his old jersey to take
    back to the old dart,and hang behind his bar.

    After the Sydney test now and starting our last full day......

    We were thinking of going to see the Roosters and the Bulldogs at the allianz, but beforehand we decided to walk in the Botanical Gardens and after a while we agreed we were enjoying the relaxation and that watching the grass grow was indeed better than League......

    Where we entered the park took us right up around the back of the Opera House....



    It was a glorious day indeed....



    And down in the gardens the ibis were out in force......

    Lovely pictures, wish I can take photographs as well as those presented here on this thread.
    Looks as though a certain art is needed to capture the magic that makes a brilliant photo.
    Keep clicking away Bobcock.

    Next stop is the point near Mrs McQuaries Chair...... looking back at the bridge and the Opera House together. Unfortunately I realised I didn't have any empty CF cards with me so I had to do a lot of on the stop editing to ctreate some space for the final shots of the day.....



    There was a gathering of people holding Chilean flags looking into the naval base in Wooollooomooolooo Bay...... they were there to see of this naval ship belonging to the Chileans.....



    We hung around until close to sun down and then I ran out of CF space.....

    The flight back to Bangkok was a respectable 3pm so my son and I were able to enjoy a walk down to Darling Harbour on the last day. Again the weather was fantastic, cold but blue skies, perfect weather in my book particularly for pictures......

    Managed to sneak in one more seagul shot before our last lunch in Sydney.....



    I'd read that the best $10 steak in Sydney was in a place called the CARGO BAR in Darling Harbour, so we decided to give it a try, and it was an excellent steak for the money, I had mine with Pepper sauce and chips. Decent thich steak and a good size as well, I'd have expected to pay 800THB for that here at least and I'd have been happy. Nope there is no picture, I was fucking hungry so was too busy eating......

    Here is the Darling Harbour flag taken from my seat after I'd finished......



    And lastly......the Sinpaore Airlines A380 taken at Sydney Kingsford smith Airport whilst we awaited our Thai chariot home



    THE END..........

    To come, the sad picture from Sydney Harbour of LT's demise, proof that the man posting is not the LT we all know and some of you like a little bit......

    Ladies and Gentlemen.....

    St0p what you are doing...... I have conclusive proof that long time member Loy Toy is no longer with us.......

    He is currently somewhere on the bottom of Sydney Harbour in the shadow of the Opera House he loved so much and the bridge he crossed so often.

    The man that did this is now using LT's log in using such un-Australian words as 'geezer'

    We all know LT was a patriot, if you listen carefully when the wind is blowing across the harbour you can hear the sounds of Advance Australia Fair in his distinctive Berkshire accent.....

    The proof that he is in Port Jackson can now be revealed.....




























    keep scrolling.....

    ^

    Not one of my buckets Bob and in the future get your facts right before announcing such falsities which could adversely affect economic markets globally.

    You can all be rest assured that the real LT is alive and well supplying the world with high tech plastic industrial containers.

    By the way Bob, my buckets float as well. 55555

    Suspect you've already got one

    To resize a picture using Paint
    1. Open Paint by clicking the Start button , clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Paint.
    2. Click the Paint button , click Open, click the picture you want to resize, and then click Open.
    3. On the Home tab, in the Image group, click Resize.
    4. In the Resize and Skew dialog box, select the Maintain aspect ratio check box so that the resized picture will have the same aspect ratio as the original picture.
      If the Maintain aspect ratio check box is selected, you only need to enter the horizontal value (width) or vertical value (height). The other box in the Resize area is updated automatically.
    5. Do one of the following in the Resize area, and then click OK:
      • To resize your picture by a certain percentage, click Percentage, and then enter a percentage to reduce the width by in the Horizontal box or a percentage to reduce the height by in the Vertical box.

    Nice thread Bob. Used to live on Milson Road down near the point. Sprint for the ferry in the morning and walk around the park below the walkups, if that is what they call them. Three levels, lived on middle level with a corner bedroom sunroom. Very romantic little nest for entertaining on a cold Sydney Sunday morning after the night before. A ramp connected the middle level to the footpath. A mate came home Mozart on a dark night. Steadying himself on the handrail so as not to tip over, mind. Encountered a rail sitting possum. It fell and clutched his arm. Then ran back up his limb and off into the shrubbery. Sobered him up a treat, that did!

    Liszt.

    I'm by no means neutral, but Sydney is the best city in the world.

    Trouble with Sydney is, if you are over 50 and single, you are invisible to the naked young girl's eye.... or should that be "to the naked eye" of the ying.
