2.5 Hours, 4 Tunnels and a Car Park by 


Sydney Opera House – Sydney – NSW – Australia

Canon EOS 450D – Canon EF-S Lens 15-85mm

Shannon, myself and his lovely partner Karen took off from Kirribilli to find a location which we didn’t know the name of, but thought we could find very easily. Turns out that the location is called Mrs Macquaries Chair, and it isn’t easy for out of towners to find – especially while the city is being shut down for a Triathlon.
So we thought the GPS Navigator would get us there ……….. no ………… it almost went into melt down mode. We went through almost every tunnel in Sydney, and at one stage we were heading to West Suburbs. We detoured through Kings Cross, Pitt St and pretty much every other street and cross known in Sydney. 2.5 hours later, we still didn’t find our spot, and decided to settle for the Opera House itself. BIG MISTAKE people. This is the car park side of the image name. We were there for 56 minutes ………… $35.00 parking costs. In big writing it says $9 for 1 hour. In very small writing it says Flat fee $35 for evenings …… regardless of how long you are there. Wilsons Car Park …….. serious rip off merchants, what a business to have in Sydney. Must have over 100 cars in there …… you do the math.

Anyhow, this image is not from there :-) ….. lol

    Bloody triathlons ruining a great adventure!! :P Regardless, this is awesome, love the dark negative space, nice one mate, pity bout the parking fee though!

  • Yeah the parking in Sydney is well and truly out of control. You would have been in your element with the triathlon, literally thousands of bikes in the park, through in your photography. Thank you Simone for your valued support :-)

    Funny (or not so funny) anecdote… I hope this one makes you loads of sales so you make back the parking costs! Great job – wonderful shot!

  • That would be real nice Emma, at least i could make enough money to cover the parking costs for the return trip. Thanks for your comment, glad you like this one :-)

    Man, you’ve got the image that I’ve had in my head for ages… Congrats mate, I’ve never seen her look so good…. And thanks for the giggle too… It’s hard to believe that some Sydney siders have the same trouble around finding where they want to go…

  • Wow, that’s a massive compliment. Seriously, i couldn’t afford to live in Sydney, madness. And the traffic would drive me nuts, too many roads and tunnels and stuff :-). Many thanks Sharon
