Catching foggy morning in Sydney

This morning I was completely failed my morning plan.  I was supposed to get up before 5 am for catching sunrise but turned out staying in bed until past 6 am, my lovely two fellas kept banging me and mate in order to wake up.

So I was going to touch and do a little work on my incomplete art work after I fed them, however, once I looked ahead from my balcony, I saw that there was a heavy milky colored blanket covered entire Sydney city.

It’s not hard to imagine that I stormed off from my place next 10 minutes with camera on my hands, to dash out to the spot below.

The heavy fog was getting to be rolled away by the time I arrived.  However, since it was just after the sunrise, the view all over wrapped in soft and mystic mood tinged in pink tone.

On top, it was almost a year ago when I photographed foggy Sydney last time, I was quite excited at this meet-and-greet this big blanket again.

Forecasts say the rain will be back tomorrow through to this weekend.  Although I missed a morning photography as I had initially planned, I thanks to my luck as it ended up having this fantastic shooting time in stead of it!

The moon and Vivid Sydney 2018

Vidid Sydney 2018 opened up this year celebrating their 10th anniversary.

I am not that big fan of Vivid simply due to the festival, which runs a little too long (three weeks?) and which hence makes me feel at them a kind of light pollution (sorry for those who love and look forward Vivid every winter).  However, if some nights were on the period where the moon became full circle, it gave me a perfect motivation to night out into glowed and crowded Sydney.  Two nights later, I set tripod at a spot where lets me take Sydney iconic architectures in straight look.  This spot was off-the-vivid area, but it was enough for me to feel festive vibe from a bit afar.

I do not know if I take more occasions for photographing Vivid this winter, I would like to share some of photos I took on the two nights…

Headed to Circular Quay by ferry.  Photographing on the ferry is always hard….

The moon always disappeared when I trained my camera at her.

A cargo passing under Harbour Bridge

I photographed this on a weekend afternoon.

An industrial cargo ship approaching to the port with a tugboat passed under Harbour Bridge.

The cargo ship was painted in green and red, which was enough to draw my attention for it outstanding and mismatching colours in the scene.

This is my submission to Monochrome Madness this week hosted by Leanne Cole.

Thank you for stopping by.

Sydney Harbour Bridge shone by sinking the sun.

I know that I did not take enough photography time recently.  It was happening by my mood driven by attention that I had to pay / set my focus on my recent day to day life.

Anyway, yesterday I did not have any due in the evening, I dashed out of office after-work and headed to Milson’s Point, Sydney.

Despite that it was short time photography time until I ran home but again but it was enough to bring me a little joy in heart (well, as always).

Here are out of those..

Walked down to Milson’s Point.  It was just when a cruise boat was on departure.

A cruise ship on departure

I am not particularly a fan of cruise ship or ferry to photograph, but I have to admit that I capture them in my photography regularly.

Yeah, I admit that I simply get thrilled at watching those machines, especially to those which are in motion.

Mmm..but I am not excited at watching buses in motion..

Anyway, here are photographs of a large cruise ship on departure, when the ferry I boarded just left Circular Quay Wharf.

Again I was thrilled at the ship.  I was thrilled simply because I do not often see those large one in motion nearby.

The middle photo below, I wished I could took it somewhat better but my lens reached to the limit as wide as it could, in addition to my composition skills.  😉

Still, I enjoyed witnessing the traffics happening at Circular Quay and Sydney Harbour like I always do.  Every time you watch something a unique scene in the traffic that brought me some kind of joy to watch, but I can’t find it similar when I witness traffic on the road ( I mean, mostly at busy streets rather).

I wished to get both of Opera House and Cruise ship in framed but part of the ship was cropped out..!

Passengers gathered on the rear deck of the boat, which they could see Harbour Bridge on their front.
