Artist's Description

Taken with a Nikon D60 at South Head in Sydney Harbour National Park, Sydney, Australia. This is Australia’s first Lighthouse and it began operating on the 30th of November, 1818. It was designed by Francis Greenway, a pardoned convict who was transported to Australia for forgery in 1814. He was a trained architect who designed many of the early buildings in NSW and was pardoned by the then Governor Lachlan Macquarie with the success of the Lighthouse. He went on the design and build such grand buildings as St. James Church, Government House and the Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney. He has since been immortalized on the Australian $10 note, making him the only forger ever to be on a banknote ! :)
