My Sydney Harbour Bridge

1932-2007: Next year, the Sydney Harbour Bridge will turn seventy-five. In the lead up to the celebrations a drawing competition themed ‘My Sydney Harbour Bridge’ was organised for primary school children. The five best drawings were printed on a poster that appeared on all bus shelters last month and the public was invited to vote for the best artwork. Make your own opinion, view the five best drawings here. The winner will be announced on October 30th, 2006. In the meantime, I'll offer my own entry: the Sydney Harbour Bridge at sunrise.

The building on the left is the cruise passenger terminal, so if you sailed into Sydney on a cruise ship (say the Queen Elizabeth 2 next February), your vessel would be berthed here and you'd get that view from your cabin... dream on!

Out of the contestants, I'd vote for Bradley: although they are all great, his has a wonderful nuance of colour.Yours is beautiful, too.

This is a beautiful photograph, Nathalie. You chose the perfect angle and lighting conditions. Wonderful!

Good shot!

I have a link for Australia bloggers, if you haven't seen it yet--send it to all your friends, too. The address should be on one line, and you may have to retype it to get it to work. Enjoy!

This is so lovely it's worth visiting again and again. I love the faintly foggy bridge, and good on you for getting up so early. So, are you a professional photographer, or somehow involved in arts or advertisement? The colours and composition of your photos are stunning, and a great learning tool for me. I hope you'll going to be in Sydney for a loooong time.

Hello and thanks for the opportunity to post on your blog. I am the webmaster of a website dedicated to cruise ships, and I am working on improving my content constantly. Hopefully I will find some more interesting info on your blog as I will check back soon. Till then, here are a few tips on selecting a cruise that I hope you and your readers will find interesting:
How long do you plan to cruise? (from three to fourteen nights, to world cruises which are the longest, lasting up to three months);
Where and how to search? You have two alternatives: a cruise travel agent or agency or the websites of cruise lines;
Facilities offered during the cruise (for instance, if you like to gamble you may want to choose a cruise line that has casinos on board; maybe facilities for your children which are offered by all major cruise lines);
Port of departure. You can choose it by the proximity to your home, if you want to save money and avoid expensive airfare;
Land and shore excursions (they are offered by all cruise lines, and last from two to three days, before, after or even during the cruise vacation). This kind of excursion gives you the opportunity to explore new cultures, destinations, visit new places, practice water sports, do some shopping etc.
If you’d like to read more about discount cruises or finding last minute cruises you are more than welcome to visit my website,
Have an excellent day!
