WATSON'S BAY



As I am pushed for time, here is one of my favourite views over Sydney, from Watson's Bay. To me, Sydney has the kind of skyline a child would draw. I love it. Hope the sun shineth upon ye!

Verily, the Sun also Shineth - as long as you post such splendid pictures!

Best wishes from another victim of Pushing Time,

The sun is shining ... but ... it's so dry here we Washingtonians with it was raining. Whatever is, is never enough!!

And how would Murikami respond to this stunning beauty? Would he find his cat here? It is, however, easier being different than it is being same.

That is one charming horizon line!

The Mur (my sweet hubbie) is home, so must dash and pretend to be domesticated.

(He knows I'm semi-feral, no fooling him...)

Watson's bay, what a treat! It's one of my own favourite views of Sydney too, Pod, thanks for posting this! Trying not to feel homesick as I watch this beautiful view...

So I'm thinking if you were in Watson's Bay you surely popped over to Doyle's and had a Balmain Bug or two.

Beautiful shot! I don't think I've ever seen Sydney from this angle, or from this far out. And what a sky!

(I love that you didn't put the horizon line in the middle!)

Lovely image, pod!

The skyline does look a bit ragged—like a mouth with missing teeth. The buildings are all different heights! But lovely just the same!

Love the perspective.

Pod, that is a beautiful picture. I got the same feeling from it. Simple and childlike. I think it would make a fantastic photo for a children's book. There is a project for us -- I will write it and you can do the photographs. Something magical with multilayered meanings and perhaps a forward by Reya.

It reminds me of why folks say San Francisco and Sydney have so much in common. Though we're a bit "hillier" to put it mildly.
