Sydney is a beautiful city:  sparkling waters, the glistening sails of the Opera House, tranquil green bush walks a stone’s throw away from the bustling city centre and, again and again, an amazing array of different shades of blue.  I love living in this city and taking photographs at different times of the day:  at dawn, at sunrise, during the day, in the hazy sunshine of the lunchtime hours or at sunset.  Feel free to follow me on Instagram.

Anthony Trollope, after his visit to Australia and New Zealand in the 1870s, famously declared that “the divine skies of the Sydney Harbour do not allow reproduction.” Nonetheless I am trying to capture some of my favourite places and impressions in these pictures to remind myself, for many years to come, of the beauty of Sydney and the other places in Australia that I have visited so far.  I hope that they may also evoke some happy memories in my readers, or, if you have never been to Sydney, the desire to explore this mesmerising city for yourself.

The moon like a flower,
In heaven's high bower,
With silent delight
Sits and smiles on the night.

(William Blake, Songs of Innocence)
