Photographing Sydney’s CBD

Sydney’s CBD and all its buildings are iconic. The skyline with the bridge and opera house are very recognizable and ridiculously photogenic. You can get some amazing photos from the ferry to Manly, but my favorite spot was the park on the other side of the harbour bridge. In Milsons Point lies the Bradfield park,…

Chirping skies

I love seeing some good street art, especially when it’s unexpected and catches you off guard.
