Happy New Year

goodbye 2015… hello 2016

insert inspirational quote here :)
I think we are overloaded with meme's and quotes nowadays and quite frankly I rarely read them now :)

On a day when we cram in over a million people into the city to watch the 5 million buck cracker show I think the only quote we really need is:
"have patience"

That goes for me too, after I lost my chops at a Taxi driver for cutting me off on the way home :)

Happy new Year all, have a safe and happy 2016 and most importantly, have patience :)

The same, but different

I have lived in Sydney for quite some years and have grown very accustom to the harbour and its views, its always nice to see it from a different perspective. Whilst I would like to think this is an original view ( although i have not seen any shots like it) I am sure, someone, somewhere has stood in the same place and fired off a few shots :)

If you have time, check out +Peter Eastway 's latest post, he has some great thoughts about the whole thing about photographing popular spots and he always has very nice shots and a great attitude.

Exif love:
