Sydney Skyline, Sydney
Favorite thing: Sydney has one of the most beautiful skylines in the world. Sydney is the city The Matrix trilogy was filmed in. From the Manly ferry you have an amazing view of the skyline, especially just after sunset. Other good spots for a good view of the skyline are from the northern side of the Harbour Bridge, other side of the Pyrmont Bridge in Darling Harbour and from the rooftop of Harbour City Backpackers.
Favorite thing: To get a real feel for the centre of Sydney, head for the Botanical Gardens at the Harbour shoreline. From here you will not only get fantastic views of those 2 Sydney icons side-by-side (try and go in the morning when the sun is behind you and you get the best light for photos), but also the CBD skyline. Both this photo and the photo for the next tip are taken from the same spot, slightly different angle! (in fact its the same water taxi -:))
At times in Sydney there's a juxtaposition of styles, especially when you get classic sandstone in front of typical glass skyscraper.
Fondest memory: I like just walking along and noting the difference, it's almost like wandering through an architectural art gallery with modern and classic intermixed.
Picture 4 was taken in Pitt Street while 3 & 5 are from Darling Harbour.
Picture 2 reminds me somewhat of a spaceship about to be launched.

Sydney has one of the most beautiful skylines of the world. Many of the box-office topping movies like Matrix Reloaded, Dil Chahta hai and Superman Returns were shot here!
Fondest memory: Being able to sit under the sun in 20 degrees at Blues point and look at the gorgeous harbour all day !
Favorite thing: This was taken from a park in the suburbs...I don't know how we got there or how we'd ever get back...haha!
Favorite thing: If you ask me, this is the most touristy part of Sydney...you will find a lot of cafes/restaurants around here...
Favorite thing: This photo is taken from near Shark Bay... I would totally recommend going for a drive out there if you have a car because you get some amazing views of Sydney...
Favorite thing: Here is the Sydney Opera House yet again... I took this photo from a ferry ride that I took across the harbour...it's a great way to get a different view of the city...
Favorite thing: Sydney has 200 year old history and you can find old things but you will find the new buildings too. I like this together. That is why I did this picture.
