  6. These are some amazing shots but there are so much more to Sydney that the famous white spikey roof and the awe-inspiring bridge. Lee Duguid is a Sydney photographer who takes amazing shots of non-tourist places: http://www.leeduguid.com.au/gallery/seascape

  15. The Opera House is one of your fair city's unmistakable landmarks. Surrounded by blue in this photo, its white "sails" really stand out!

    WATERY SATISFACTION

    Puddles of water and drops of dew—
    What does it take to satisfy you?
    A rushing river, a roiling sea—
    That’s what it takes to satisfy me!
