Opera House, ferries (Theme Day: Action Shot)

These Sydney Ferries were captured in action arriving towards and departing from Circular Quay, just before passing each other in front of the Sydney Opera House. They are a First Fleet Class ferry arriving and a SuperCat Class ferry departing.

  2. It might be the same ferry we took to Manly among other places.

  3. Iconic shot! Love the illusion of near collision course of the water craft.

  4. To my way of thinking the sleeker craft do no measure up at all to the more traditionally shaped ferries. I love the green and gold on the harbour. Wonderful shot of a great part of Sydney, Jim.

  5. Lovely shot. It surprised me when I first saw pictures of those old ferries in Sydney a few years ago - they didn't really fit with the super-sleek ultra modern perception of Sydney that I had. I think with your Sydney blog and others, you give a much more rounded picture of the city and its history. Nice one!

  8. Like the way the ferry echoes the shape of the Opera House. I saw these ferries in operation on an American reality show not too long ago. Recently in Oslo I saw their new opera house which was designed by the same architect as your Sidney Opera House. It was different, of course, but still reminded me of your house.

  26. Podobał mi się podróż z promów, ponieważ są one wygodne i zdjęcia są naprawdę niesamowite w podróży. Mam nadzieję, że powinny zaplanować podróż ponownie promy , ponieważ oferują komfortowe.
