Circular Quay (a different perspective)

It has been said that, like music, all the original photos of the world have been taken.  Thinking about this on my recent visit to Circular Quay in Sydney (the quay next to the Sydney Opera House) I was eager to explore and take photos of the ordinary in the hope of finding something special.

You may think I am a bit strange, but I don’t mind walking around  a cemetery at night. Actually I find it almost comforting, particularly this one because my late father it at this one.

This photo is very evocative for me as it seems to be saturated with symbolism. I hope you enjoy it.

Brae Lossie Stars

For the last two years, we have stayed at a farm stay in the Gingkin area of NSW. I have been so taken by the beauty of the stars there, I recently asked if I could take a shot of the early winter starscape. It’s the kind of place where major constellations are drowned out by all the other bright stars. Can you pick out Scorpious the scorpion? This is a link to the farm’s website. http://www.stayz.com.au/accommodation/nsw/blue-mountains/jenolan-caves/23675
