The top picture needs no introduction, the Opera House is one of the most photographed images in the world. This shot was taken while getting a water taxi home on Saturday. Although they say you should not take a photograph in to the sun, I did and was quite pleased with the outcome.
The second shot however is pretty cool. Every night at dawn, we see, literally, tens of thousands of bats flying out of the Botanical Gardens which are opposite our house. My parents are over from France for a month so, jet lagged, I took them for a quick tour on their first day here! All of the hanging things in the tree are fruit bats! The gardens were actually lovely and I will follow this with a few more shots from that area.
Anyway, this is a super short one, all is good here, Mum and Adrien arrived safely and have now gone out in a camper van to tour for eleven days.
More updates soon

We have finally moved in to a new house. It is in an area called Woolloomooloo. I have dreamt of the day that I can say I live somewhere with eight 'o's. The Dream is over....
OK, so maybe not but, it is a lovely area and we live on the waterfront. The building is an old wharf and if you click on those words, it will take you to a link with all of the details. Apparently, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban live here as well, not just Russell Crowe. That will probably explain the security needed to get in to the building!
The two photos above are taken from our balcony looking towards Sydney.
Work is going very well although I am incredibly busy. Only to be expected I guess.
Great news for me is that my parents are coming out to Australia to see me for a month, they arrive this coming Friday. It has been nearly a year since I last saw them so it will be awesome.
Anyway, for now, Keep Safe
