Sunday in Sydney

Some photographs from a few hours with Kate, spent visiting Circular Quay, the Sydney Opera House, and the current Kaldor public art project by Jonathan Jones in Sydney’s Botanic Gardens. http://kaldorartprojects.org.au/ Twenty years after moving to Sydney, I never get tired of visiting the area. It still makes me go “wow”.

Flying in to Sydney

When I fly in to Sydney, most of the time it’s over the oil refineries of Kernel. It’s always such a pleasure to fly in a different way, taking in views of Sydney Harbour, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. This was the view on Thursday afternoon/evening on a Virgin flight. Bliss.

It was then her official wedding photographer looked behind, and realised he, not she, was the centre of attention. Unwittingly, they found themselves in the midst of […]
