Pyrmont, wharf

The new wharf in Johnstons Bay at Pyrmont, beside what will soon be known as Pirrama Park. This shot is looking up towards Harris Street and Elizabeth Piazza, which runs along the foreshore. The block of redeveloped flats on the right is The Elizabeth, which was once the office block for CSR Limited. This shot is in the opposite direction to the garden of poles that are remnants of the old wharf that I featured last weekend.

  2. Jim I really enjoy the photos you show us of your world and it is so nice to get the geography and history to go with it. Makes it seem like I am visiting!

  4. Again, I'm so impressed with the wonderful job of renovation and preservation your city and suburbs are doing.

    BTW, I can't wait to see your tunnel shot. Mine was a fluke -- I don't know how I did it. I took about 10 as we drove through and all of the rest were completely unusable. I need to learn how to keep track of my camera settings.... (so much to learn, so little time).

  7. The more I see of this place, the more I like it. This wharf is just perfect and I see also what seem quite peculiar benches...

  9. Great shot of the wharf, Jim. I like these waterfront re-developments, out with the old - in with the new. Sad, but a way of life.

  10. What a joy it must be to walk upon that wood, feeling the movement of the sea beneath...

    Please have a nice weekend.

  13. Ahh, sunny Sydney... the little black block looks nice - would be nice to have an apartment there looking out to the water, with floor to ceiling windows :)

  19. Ann, I was there at the end of the day and when the last group of people were leaving I quickly got in there for a snap. Then I just waited until the joggers and walkers had moved out of view to get a perfect shot.
