This ship has a bit of my heart. My Dad was a Chief Petty Officer onboard HMAS Darwin.
In fact, we moved to Seattle while HMAS Darwin was being built there!
I’ve seen so much of the world due to this ship, yet I haven’t been in the Navy :)

So when I saw her docked in Hobart last year I could not help but grab a few shots of her!

    Great shot Kelly! I was on ADELAIDE for a while and a cousin on DARWIN, so I know exactly how you feel! Except ADELAIDE will be sunk this year :-(

    That looks like it’s over the Salamanca side near the CSIRO. I sailed out of Hobart on the Canberra to Fleet Base West over in the west at Freemantle. I saw Canberra go to the bottom here in Vic last year. I love Hobart, was born there, and it has to be one of the best waterside cities to shoot! The water and the sky make this image!
