Macro

For "Macro Mondays" group topic #264, 4 July 2022 "Pins" "Pins are usually pieces of jewellery made of base metal that are pinned to the lapel. They often have a decorative function, but can also underline the affiliation (for example to a club or a company). " (I'd call it a badge, but I guess that's a matter of translations).

Barangaroo benches

Across Darling Harbour from the maritime museum (and with the James Craig in the background) the Barangaroo area of Sydney, formerly run-down warehouses and shipping wharves, has been the scene of major redevelopment over recent years. A second image in the PiP. Happy Bench Monday, everyone.

The James Craig

The James Craig is a three masted steel hulled barque built in 1875. I remember seeing her, long ago, as a rusting hulk on a beach in Tasmania. Finally she was refloated, towed to Sydney, and restored by volunteers. She now is at the Sydney Maritime Museum and does regular trips out to sea. Much more info on her here.

The bridge

Also known locally as "the coathanger", this has defined Sydney since its construction in the 1930s . Taken in the early days of my recent travels. Happy Fence Friday, everyone, and have a safe and enjoyable weekend.

Bruny Isthmus

Bruny Island is near the southern end of Tasmania. Its northern and southern ends are joined by this isthmus with a viewing platform where this image was taken. I'm having a very pleasant time on my trip, but will be away (and offline) for a little longer. Meanwhile, best wishes everyone and do have a very Happy Fence Friday.

Sea Cliff Bridge

This bridge is well known (at least in Australia). Yes, there's a fence too, though you will have to enlarge to see it. It's more visible in the PiP, taken on the bridge. I expect I'll be largely offline for a while as I shall be travelling. For now, all my best wishes for a very Happy Fence Friday and a great weekend, everyone.

Next stop Johannesburg

Qantas flight QF63, taken just over 12 hours ago, at 34,000 ft about 30 minutes from its Sydney departure. It has been en route across the southern Indian Ocean to South Africa and, as I post this, still has another 1.5 hours to travel before arrival. The aircraft is a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
