20 June - big city view

Sydney, Australia

Walking through the Darling Harbour development on the western edge of the Sydney CBD I tried to see my home town through the eyes of a visitor. I also restricted myself to using my phone camera only. A simple camera forces me to look at pure composition without the aid of a powerful or flexible lens. Note the shallow depth of field with the phone camera lens. No cropping whatsoever.

You can see the monorail going over the Pyrmont Bridge which connects the city to the Darling Harbour precinct.

For two more examples of phone camera photographs of the same area see: and

I didn't realize phone cameras could do something like this. Very nice. Powerful.
