Sydney photos

I was in Sydney the last few days, catching up with friends and taking photos.  I cannot remember how tiring it is being a tourist!

This photo is taken at Darling Harbour. It’s a busy place. Even without people, this photo looks busy… Please visit James for weekend reflections photos.

Darling Harbour Monorail © Evelyn Howard 2010

Another photo taken in Darling Harbour. So much to look at! There is a bridge below the monorail. This makes me think of the Simpsons episode on monorail! Have you seen it?

Visit Louis on Sunday for Sunday Bridges.

Snow Flakes Customs House © Evelyn Howard 2010

I was in Circular Quay yesterday, and I saw this machine pumping out snow and giant snowflakes in front of Customs House. Many people stopped to look. The kids were thrilled, and the scene made me smile. It is feeling like Christmas time :).

The vertical lines are attractive in the first photo.

@Lesley: Yes, Oprah was there, but I didn't go anywhere near the Sydney Opera House on that day!

Something about squiggly reflections in water is so cool... and great addition to the bridge collection!

I like the juxtaposition of the monorail and the older boat. And we have snow too today, only ours is cold and wet!

Such a beautiful landscape!

Kaori said...

Oh yeah, playing tourist can be really tiring! But I love the photos you took :-D

Is that real snow in the last photo? Very cool way to enjoy winter during your summer!

Didn't know about the monorail. Envy your warm weather about now.

Evelyn said...

@Kaori: looks pretty but it's not enough to change the warm weather! It's water and air (I think) which floated up and disappeared after a while.

It's neat the way you tied this series of images in with James' Weekend Reflections and with «Louis'» Sunday Bridges.
