Photography 101: Landmark

Landmarks, well Australia has quite a few.  I cannot go out today (as asked) to take a landmark picture as I am working.  Typically if I could, as I live on the Gold Coast, it would be the beautiful beaches that we are known for, but the next best thing is to go through my archives to my trip to Sydney earlier this year.  (Sorry to everyone that follow me as I have probably posted these pictures more than once!!).

In Australia the most iconic landmarks are the firstly the Sydney Harbour Bridge and then the Sydney Opera  House so these I give you today.  I have taken the bridge at different times of the day at different distances to get a variety of perspectives.  The Sydney Opera House I have tried to be a bit more abstract with as I like the pattern on the shells and the shapes so zoomed in to create a different look.

  6. Beautiful photographs! My favorite is the night time Sydney Bridge…probably because that’s just about the same view I had of the bridge the first time I saw it! I think it will always be my favorite. Even the sky was just like in your picture…kind of mottled with clouds.

  14. Lovely photos Karen. I have a photo that I took of the opera house 4 or 5 years ago that is abstract as well. It would be my favourite of all my photos.
