The reason why I like this shot is because it’s a photo of a Sydney icon that many people have, but a view of which that hasn’t really been captured. I also like it because I really approached the taking of this shot correctly. From knowing the right lane to be in, to having all the settings in the camera properly preset, to having the right camera and lens ready. And then I got lucky – the cloud cover was just right to avoid blow-outs and just for ONCE there was enough of a break in traffic that cars didn’t get in the way. I know it’s not quite perfect but it’s pretty much exactly what I set out to photograph.
this photo won first place in a Pentaxforums.com members competition on the theme Symmetry in February 2008. Woohoo!!
