I’m back from my weekend up to Sydney and whilst the weather wasn’t to kind for landscape photography I still managed to get out and get a couple of shots of the harbour at sunrise and sunset (which I will post later in the week) and we managed to have a great weekend and fit a lot in to just two days.
Sydney is such a culturally diverse city, I love travelling to all the different areas and seeing what can be found there. This time around we visited Cabramatta which is home to Sydney’s Vietnamese community. It is amazing how they have made this area their own as it almost feels like you are walking the streets of Saigon (minus the motorbikes) with the bustling street activity and hawker style vendors. We managed to spend a couple of hours walking the streets where I managed to snap a few shots. This time I thought I would challenge my composition skills by using only the Nikon 50mm f1.8 and use my feet instead of relying on the zoom, please consider that I was suffering from a giant hangover during this visit so I have elevated myself to trooper status! We topped the afternoon off with a brilliant lunch at one of the many traditional Vietnamese restaurants.
I can’t wait to get back to Sydney as whilst I couldn’t live there I had forgotten how much fun it is.
