Complexity

This close-up of a small part of the infrastructure of the Sydney Harbour Bridge gives some idea of the intricate complexity of the steelwork.

Needing No Introduction…

Is there anyone who didn’t recognise the Sydney Opera House?

The Convict

I thought I might start playing along with the new Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) that is being curated in alternate weeks by Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao. As usual, I’ve turned up late, so this is Week 2.

The idea is to post an image of any example of public art, which is defined as any art form (buildings, statues, graffiti, paintings etc) that is plainly visible from a public place. There’s certainly never going to be a shortage of potential subjects.

My initial contribution is ‘The Convict’. This carving in sandstone can be found in the oldest part of Sydney, around Circular Quay. It’s one of a series portraying historical characters. The ‘real’ shackles certainly bring it to life. I suppose you could say that they are quite arresting.

Taking the ferry from Circular Quay in Sydney to Manley offers some spectacular views.

Not for the faint-hearted

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is iconic. It’s possible to take a guided tour of the superstructure, as these hardy souls have. No thank you: sea level is just fine with me.

Ferries are a popular form of public transport in the area around Sydney.

Blue reflections

The glass walls of the pool produce the optical illusion that there are two performing seals earning their keep here at Taronga Zoo in Sydney.

A Golden Display

This week, Cee is looking for a photo dominated by a single colour.

This is a firework I captured in the New Year’s Eve display in Sydney a few years ago. Photographing fireworks is always a bit of a hit-and-miss affair, but I think I got lucky with this one.
