Sydney Cityscapes - April 2016

We recently spent a few days in Sydney, Australia visiting family, and I had the opportunity to do a couple of photography sessions of the iconic Sydney Harbor. There aren’t many cities that I consider nice to look at, but Sydney is certainly one of them. These are some of the images I liked the most. Most of these shots were done on my tripod, as several of the ones shown here were long exposures. The daytime images of Sydney Harbor Bridge were made on the southwest side with my Lee Seven5 filter set. The nighttime images were shot from the north side from two different spots, looking back on Sydney Harbor. All of them were shot with the E-M1 and 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro.

And of course, what is a trip to another country without visiting a local brewery?

Kansai, Japan - May 2014

Day 8: Under an hour south of Kyoto via train is the ancient capital of Japan, Nara. As much as we liked Kyoto, we may have liked Nara even more. It is a city full of UNESCO World Heritage sites, scattered amidst a large park that makes up its "downtown" area.

One of these sites is the Kofuku-ji Temple in Nara Park. We saw tame Sika deer everywhere, roaming freely and waiting for people to feed them senbei (rice crackers). We also visited the serene Yoshiki-en Garden, just out of the main area, but very beautiful.

Another UNESCO World Heritage site we visited that day was the ruins of the imperial Heijo Palace, west of Nara. It used to serve as the emperor's residence and government offices. The audience hall has been reconstructed, as the original buildings were lost through time and abandonment.
