Luna Park and Sydney Harbour Bridge

The northern side of Sydney Harbour touches down at Milson’s Point, with the dazzle of Luna Park tucked in under tall apartment blocks. On this weekday evening, Luna Park was closed, sending the message that there was fun to be had, but not now. Loved the contrasting red and green of these picnic tables in the function area.

Amusements were closed and wrapped for another day.

The roller coaster wasn’t going anywhere.

But the bright lights still beckoned.

Three Sydney icons in one image, Luna Park, the Sydney Opera House, and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Always smiling, the entrance to Luna Park has a creepy aspect at dusk. Perhaps its those never-blinking eyes, or those gravestone teeth.

The classic Sydney Harbour Bridge View. I set the camera on the night setting and rested it on a post. It did the rest.

Its getting dark now and the Bridge is reflecting on the water. The Sydney CBD to the left.

I am glad we have finally arrived at my home town of Sydney. Travel photography is great, but its nice to be able to share something of my own area of the world.

Having given up the greeting card enterprise I am now finding that there is less need to have a separate photography blog, especially since I am not travelling. I have been trying to maintain three blogs, but finding it very time consuming and something always slips behind. So I am going to take a break from this ImageChest blog and explore combining writing and photography on the May and September Blog which has more of a focus on writing and reflection. The aim is to combine words and images on that blog to present the world as I see it, and hope you will join me over there.
