Photographer's Note

The Rocks area of Sydney is right beside Sydney Cove (home to ferry wharves and the terminal for large cruise ships).
The area was settled very early after the arrival of Europeans in 1788 and was for a long time was a slum and home, amongst others, to convicts and prostitutes (so popular with visiting sailors). As happens with lots of areas it gradually changed with many good stone buildings being built. Large warehouses and bond stores were near the water.
It is very popular with tourists, although quiet currently due to a tourism downturn due to the fires and not corona virus.
We recently stayed there over night when we went to the opera (Faust - great!).
I went for a wander with my small Ricoh GRIII, doing a John (jhm) in Bruges, starting on the roof of our hotel with this view over an ornate old warehouse, a large cruise ship, some of the Opera House and down the harbour.

Best in the large view.
