For the past few weeks I have been joining in the Thursday Challenge - was not sure I could keep it up, but so far so good and it is certainly fun.  For those who are dropping by from that page - thank you!!  Due to my current state of transition between continents, my time is limited so am not able to visit as many of the others as I would like... something I plan to remedy in 2014!

This week's theme is CITY - - hmmmm what have I got?...

Couldn't resist giving you a vision of two cities - first Sydney on a sultry February (late summer) day, with the greasy haze obscuring the North Sydney buildings, Opera house and Bridge.  Taken with the Minolta digicam back in 2006!

This young busker was drawing quite a
crowd - and so he should; I wasn't
quick enough to catch the one-leg act!

  1. Not up to a challenge, come on try keeping up a daily blog and doing an A to Z that will keep you occupied.
    Nice photo of the bridge

    Actually, Bill, am keeping up three daily blogs and setting lots of my own challenges in those - main thing about this was the fact that here in OZ I have dismal i'net access and therefore am posting up to a week ahead on them all - which could be tricky. However it has fallen to a Thursday anyway, hence being able to follow the memes... don't worry, am up for an A-Z in the New Year and new home!!! &*>

  3. Beautifully captured moments. :)

  4. Great shots. Sydney has instant recognition thanks to the Opera House.


Feedback is appreciated. Keep yourselves tidy please.
