Quick Tour of Sydney

A couple of weeks ago I went to Sydney to attend a the ConnectNow Conference. That took place on Wednesday and Thursday so I took the Friday off to explore the city (as much as I could in one day).

The photos from that day are on my ‘Sydney April 2010’ Set on Flickr but here are some of my favourites.

Buildings at University of Sydney

The second day of the conference ended around sunset and the sunlight on that overcast day was quite delicious. This is the Law School building:

Sydney Harbour Bridge

The Harbour Bridge is, of course, am imposing structure:

Even when it’s in the background:

It was fun, also, to see people doing the bridge walk on it:

I also managed to get a good perspective shot of the Sydney Tower from within the Sydney Explorer tour bus.

Sydney City

Finally, like my photo of Melbourne from Port Philip Bay, here's a photo of Sydney from its harbour:

All in all, I had a great day wandering around this gorgeous city. I would have liked more time to explore but that’s no fun without Nadia so we’ll check the city out properly when we go there for TAM! Australia 2010.

Oh, I also got to try out my new camera – the Canon IXUS 120 IS – which, as you can see from the photos I took, is quite awesome.

Quick reminder: You can see all the photos from this trip on my ‘Sydney April 2010’ Set on Flickr.
