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.

Clouds over the harbour

Clouds over the harbour

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.

Film shoot outside the Old Sydney Customs House

Film shoot outside the Old Sydney Customs House

There was some sort of film shoot outside the old customs house today. Oddly, they were all holding Donut King drinks - seemed a bit classy for Donut King!

Reflecting on Grosvenor Place

Reflecting on Grosvenor Place

The oversized chrome revolving doors of Grosvenor Place make for some nice reflections. Taken under a gloomy Sydney autumn sky.

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.

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
