Sydney Opera House, Australia

UPDATE: Please see my new gallery of Australia photos here.

Scroll down for my photographs of the unmistakable Sydney Opera House in Australia. Side-on it reminded me of an armadillo. It's a remarkable sight and strangely moving if you've travelled from the other side of the world to see it. These photos were all taken using a film camera on a clear day without any filters or post-processing.

While in Sydney, I also visited the Blue Mountains and climbed up the arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. In my photo, you can just about make out a clump of climbers. If you get a chance to do the bridge climb, take it! It's exhilarating.

I also visited the Chinese Friendship Garden in Darling Harbour, which offers a serene respite from the bustle around it.

For aerial views of these locations, see my world photography map.
