Dawes Point.

An early start to my day. I decided to revisit an area I had been to earlier in the month (May 11th)to get some shots of the Harbour Bridge at a similar time. A fabulous pink light filled the sky as the sun came up. With the exception of a few joggers the place was empty.

AMP building, Circular Quay.

"Look up" There is always interesting stuff going on with buildings when you look up. The boring bits are at eye level, all the detail is higher up, especially with older buildings. This is the HQ of AMP (insurance company) in Circular Quay. It dates back to the 60's and has an interesting curve in it that is accentuated when you strain your neck skywards. The gold colour contrasts well with the clear blue sky.

Ewenton Park, Balmain.

My son Tom, aged 2, is proving a difficult subject to capture. He never stands still long enough to get a decent shot. This was taken with me holding the camera in one hand while throwing a ball with the other. If you are familiar with the camera I use you will know how heavy it is in two hands!

Sussex St., Chinatown.

Plenty of rain today. The first heavy downpour for ages. Hurring along Sussex Street in Chinatown I noticed a small pond on the roadside where there was a blocked drain. At this stage the rain was easing up and I just grabbed a quick shot of a rain drop landing. The red light is from a shop window.

Campbells Cove.

I had an early assignment in the city and decided to get up extra early to get a sunrise shot. From darkness to this point only took several minutes. The ship was bobbing around in the water and in the first few long exposures the ship is blurred. I had to wait for more light before I could get a shot that froze its movement.

The Bells Hotel is a real old style down to earth family run pub. It's very popular with sailors from the nearby base. Unfortunately tragedy struck this family pub on December 18th 2004 when the publican Shane Miles was fatally injured by a flying bar stool during a fight that broke out over a pool game. Four men have since been charged with his murder.
