Sydney Harbour Bridge

The other night we went down to the circular quays to do some sunset shots of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. As we were arriving, a cruise ship was going underneath the bridge. We were too far away for photos, but we could see that it didn't have any trouble going under. It sped speedily out towards the ocean.

It was a nice night for photos, but we got there a little too late. It seems that the sun is going down a little sooner than it was in Perth, it may be because of which side of the time zone we are in or maybe the sun is just going down earlier and earlier as winter approaches. In any case here is one of my bridge photos.

We walked along the shore and through the botanical gardens to find a vantage point with both the bridge and the opera house, but by the time we got there it was very dark. Too dark even though both structures are lit up at night. As we were walking back, they shut the botanical gardens down and locked them so we had to walk the long way around. It surprised us that they would be locking them at 7:00pm but lock them they did.

I have my third day of temping in the morning. After work I may go in to a restaurant to get a job washing dishes in the evening. It isn't a good way to spend the week before Mother's Day.
