A day in Sydney

I will be posting a photograph of Sydney every single day. I hope for the photos to be fairly contemporaneous, but I won't promise they were taken the very day they were posted. At the moment this series is hosted on flickr, but that will probably change so please subscribe to my "A day in Sydney" blog category rather than my flickr feed to make sure you don't miss out.

Where'd everybody go?

Where'd everybody go?

Our neighbour has a great deciduous tree that attracts loads of birds in summer. Some birds seem not to mind when all the leaves disappear (into our yard)

Stairway to Law

Stairway to Law

The new Sydney University Law Faculty building offers many interesting views. This one has a slight Jeffrey Smartt aspect (I like to think!)

Roller Skating

Roller Skating

I was sad when they closed down my childhood roller skating rink. I'm not sure this is the same.

Walkway to St James

Walkway to St James

I was at St James station early enough to find it nearly empty. St James is one of the (very few) genuinely attractive stations in Sydney. Another day I'll take some shots of the cavernous interior of the cut-and-cover underground station.

Rusted Poles

Rusted Poles

I've been sick for a few days, hence the pause in photographs. This is another one from the archives, taken at Dee Why beach in Sydney's North. It's a mounted transparency so I can't see what type of film it is.

View from Macquarie Lighthouse

View from Macquarie Lighthouse

Today I had no time for photographing so this is one from the archives. To be honest I can't remember when it was taken, but I do know it was taken with my EOS 30 with EF24-85mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens using a 400 ISO Kodak C-31 process black and white film.

The weather was pretty changeable today, but even so the Sydney Harbour manages to look beautiful.

The Sacrifice

The Sacrifice

Rayner Hoff's amazing sculpture in the Sydney ANZAC War Memorial

The central motif of the design is ‘The Sacrifice’. It comprises a bronze group of sculptures depicting the recumbent figure of a young warrior who has made the supreme sacrifice; his naked body lies upon a shield which is supported by three womenfolk - his best loved Mother, Wife and Sister and in the arms of one is a child, the future generations for whom the sacrifice has been made.
