    These were taken from the Neutral Bay ferry on the Thursday evening I arrived on the way to the wonderful North Sydney Oval for the Classic Wallabies / Lions game.









    hese look fantasically vibrant on my screen which is calibrated for my camera, on this screen they look dull and shitty.....

    Next up is the second morning where I used the 8-15mm fisheye....

    When used as a 15mm lens there is a fair bit of distortion but I have software that irons it out if necessary.....





    On the steps in front.....

    I have not even perused this thread yet- I will take my time, and savour the flavour.
    But after all this time, and all of my travels, I still think Sydney is the best city in the world.

    Never been to Oz but would like to visit Sydney if I get the chance.

    Can,t say I am a fan of the Opera house but its certainly a unique building.I find the Harbour bridge of more interest,must be some great views from up there.

    The reason why we were all there......

    Sad that Australia weren't available to play us, even the match day program doesn't mention Australia..... are they so ashamed of that word?



    The next 5 pics are not from a decent camera, just my small Olympus point and push, but it's a fun thing and has some fun features for when I cannot be out with the big box.....





    It's a magnificent structure, but like most non purpose built rugby stadiums the fixed seating is too far from the pitch. The lower seats are all temporary. This was a record crowd for this stadium configuration.

    Now I know this pic is shit, but I like it so I thought I'd share it. I was stitched in the camera so nothing I can do about it, but it does show the stadium well.....

    It also highlights where the cocksuckers at the ARU made sure the Lions fans were seated. They also added $300 to each ticket sold to a Lions supporter through official channels. And that was before those 'official channels' added their $50 here $20 there. To buy a $75 dollar ticket legitimately a Lions fan had to pay $550. To the ARU, you are cvnts and I hope you lose every game this year. They even printed the Lions fans tickets without prices but when local people showed them their tickets with prices on them , lets just say there was not much love for the ARU.



    Post match, Darling Harbour..... Scotland The Brave, who has to be a sourpuss like pseudolus because his fabvourites weren't picked? Based on the accents and people I talked to the travelling support was 60% Welsh and a very healthy Scottish contingent as well, they are noticable by their dresses and Drew here is wearing his army issue desert Storm dress.



    Right to finish this 2 shots of Centrepoint Tower....





    THE END
