More Tips on Sydney from Travelers
Sydney Harbour Bridge
- so I was shooting the Sydney harbour bridge and the fisherman one winter morning and I saw this man fishing alone on the warm, approaching him I asked whether he was cool if I took photos of him and he reluctantly accepted, as I shot him we began making small talk to avoid awkward silence, in doing do I found out that he had migrated to Australia int he 1980’s from a war torn country and fished every day for 30 years at this spot, he reminisced on how many fish used to be on offer and the better quality of fishing rods back then. it really made me appreciate this shot so much more
- There’s only a few times each year that the full moon sets behind the Sydney Harbour Bridge in this composition, and I’d planned this shot weeks in advance. This was taken after dawn on a cold Saturday morning in between the clouds. In person the full moon is a grand sight moving quickly through the sky towards the city. In this shot I’ve tried to evoke how I felt standing there watching it balanced between these two Sydney icons, which - open disclosure - required some adjustment to the moon size.
Sydney Olympic Park
- Built in a dockyard in Grangemouth, Scotland in 1911. Arriving in Sydney a year later, it was originally called the Corrimal and during the Second World War it would transport supplies to US troops in the Pacific. When the war ended it was renamed and became a collier on the “sixty miler” run transporting coal from Newcastle to Sydney. It came to Homebush Bay in 1972 and was left behind after the scrap metal prices tumbled and closed down.
- The choice of the name, Ferry McFerryface, follows on the heels of Boaty McBoatface and Trainy McTrainface after the PR disaster of Scottish authorities rejecting the popular public naming competition winner. Ferry McFerryface is the 3rd response to that rejection of the public will, after being invited to enter a name. The controversy is undiminished.
- Though this was part of my photowalk the other day, my 35mm prime wasn’t wide enough for this scene. So I whipped out my OnePlus, set it on the fence and just went to work with the Pro Mode. The fact that my smartphone did what my DSLR couldn’t in this scene just goes to show, the best camera is the one on you.
- Sunrise the first weekend after COVID-19 lockdown rules were slightly eased in NSW, Australia. This was the first time out of the house for anything other than food, work or school in 3 months. It just goes to show that the beautiful world is still out there, still stunning.
