Day and Night


Getting our bearings at Sydney Central after a 90 minute flight from Melbourne.


Quite a mob at the Opera House Plaza, I spent a couple of hours mingling alone, Sandra gave it a miss that night.


Of course it wasn't long before we headed downtown to Circular Quay to be sure that bridge was there


It was, and there were lots of other attractions and photo ops too ...
The Galaxy + XZ-2 combo worked well, nobody takes notice when shooting with a phone, everyone's doing it!


Heading for our hotel, just 500 metres from the station - gee, look at all that traffic!

All Galaxy S6 images - loads of XZ2's to come!

Nice shot of the opera house. Better watch your blood pressure Mark.

Tell me aout it ... you got the picture, I took the full impact of it!
Actually, she strutted her stuff past me at Circular Quay, I thought WOW! ...
and before I knew it she was 30 yards away. I raced after her to get a closer shot
with the phone but I couldn't keep up (no pun intended ) so I took a grab shot on the run!
That effort and excitement could have killed an old man like me ... resized image uncropped.


No need to set up a tripod ... I was one ...
