    Bobcock in Sydney - 2013

    This is not going to be the most exciting thread, I just made a quick trip to Sydney for the Third QANTAS Wallabies v British & Irish Lions Test match and my camera spent most of it's time in the hotel safe.

    I really only photographed the harbour, which lets be honest has been done a hundred million times before and as beautiful as it is, there's nothing new I can do without a gyroscope and a helicopter and I suspect that has also been done by someone.

    I didn't take much gear, no tripod (which I regretted) but I did take my rather nice new fish eye lens that I'd only used briefly in the USA in April. It's an 8-15mm so it can be used as a fish eye or a FWA - Fucking Wide Angle.



    The great feature was some wonderful Sydney Winter weather with near cloudless electric blue skies.

    The pictures at the rugby were not taken with my Canon, but with a little Olympus Point and Push.

    You seem to be a filthy rich fella Bobby Boy flying here and there all around the flat.

    That's a good thing though so good luck to you Fella.

    Cheers.

    PS. Your photo threads are always top shelf in the quality department.

    Good stuff.

    One trip I always have to do is the ferry over to Cremorne, I adored this trip when I lived there, going out of my way to travel this way rather than bus the bridge.....

    Short on time this trip I still made sure I did it.....

    I love the Sydney opera house, it must be one of the most iconic buildings in the world.

    The pics are awesome, a different perspective on the usual helicopter ones. The Opera house is one of the most iconic buildings of the world. excellent work. Green sent.

    At last a change of scenery, met a mate for lunch near Hyde Park so whilst I was waiting I took some shots of the ANZAC Memorial.

    I used to wend my weary way to and from my weary job, passing by the yet to be finished opera house, in the early 70's, wondering how it would turn out.
    I remember taking my daugters on a habour cruise, going on the same trekon the ferry and past past the opera house to my place in randwick.

    I was drinking in a bar under the Harbor bridge in the 80's when the Space shuttle blew up. Watched it on the Telli.

    That's my claim to fame with Sydney.

    ^ My claim to fame with Sydney is that I was there on 18th January, 1977 and my mate and I were going to go for a train ride to the Blue Mountains when this happened .... Granville rail disaster - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Yes, the buildings are reflected in the windows of the ferry, look carefully and you can see the passengers inside disembarking....

    Continuing with the ANZAC Memorial in Hyde Park....
