‘I’d give you all of Sydney Harbour, all that land, all that water, for that one sweet promenade. I’d give you all of Sydney Harbour, all that land, and all that water, for that one sweet promenade.’ Words by Paul Kelly. ‘From St Kilda to Kings Cross’ – Paul Kelly.
I decided to start my year off by getting inspired, so I headed to Sydney for some much needed alone time. To soak up some sunshine, art and culture, in my favourite city by the sea. If you haven’t been it is hard to describe the feeling of being by (or on) the harbour on a warm Australian summer’s day.
There are a million travel stories that have already been written about Sydney, but sometimes you really only need to feel the inspiration. To tell others you were inspired, without lengthy diatribes about how and why and long existential dissections that suck all of the simple love out of the experience you had.
So I will not contribute one more, but will let my pictures tell the story and hope that you too will be bathed in joy.
Sydney, Australia. January 2013.
