Apple Museum

After a rejig of my office, there is finally room for the Apple museum. More pieces to come!

Apple Museum

Your eyes don't deceive you, that is a 5 1/4 inch drive - the processor direct slot has an Apple // card in it (which was designed for the LC, which my parents bought it with, but it works great in the Colour Classic).

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)

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.

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.

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.

A day in Sydney

It's time for a new direction for this blog. I follow a number of photography blogs and have long admired Cyril Genty's work on Un jour à Paris where he simply posts a photo a day taken somewhere in Paris. I thought I'd take a similar approach, but with Sydney, to help break some creative block and hopefully provide enjoyment for others at the same time.

So, starting next week I will be posting a photograph of Sydney every single day week day. I hope for the photos to be fairly contemporaneous, but I won't promise they were taken the very day they were posted.

Here is a sneak peak, taken last Friday at Luna Park Sydney.

The main page for this project is http://mark.aufflick.com/a-day-in-sydney - please feel free to leave comments and if I fall behind give me a nudge! 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
