sydney tourist thing on a stick


i went up here, had a thoroughly miserable time and i even suspect their x-ray machine broke my big camera.  highly unimpressed (literally).  oh well.  it was the only bad part of my trip.

darling harbour sydney


old boat


newer boat and secret submarine (shhhh, don’t tell anyone)


xmas tree in the thirty degree heat.

the best seat in the (opera) house


i’ve been in australia for the last few days, but i’m back home in auckland, new zealand again now which is good.  Australia was hot – mid/high 30s and >75% humidity.  NZ is mid 20s i think, so a welcome relief.

anyway, expect an explosion of Sydney picks over the next few weeks !
