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.
