My heart is pounding with excitement. I feel as if I've seen it all before. These are so wonderful, Julie.

I love the details you show of the Endeavour. Must make an effort to go and see the Maritime Museum.

Surely you can get a Skywatch out of this? It's the perfect backdrop... especially with those bijou clouds...ooh la la

Julie said...

I thought of you, BC, as I wandered around it. When I get a chance, I will tour over it.

Bill, it is a great place to visit but will take you ages! Not so easy to show a full shot without the city or lots of other boats overwhelming it. It is VERY small ... but totally gorgeous. A friend is a tour guide on it - volunteer.

Julie said...

Oh, ok Cara ... did not think of that. Duh!

Beautiful shots Julie. Glorious blues. There's a special promotion on Vivid in the Sydney Morning Herald today. Seems like it's getting bigger this year involving projections on buildings in Macquarie Street that we also saw at Christmas.

It's a pity all ships don't look like that.

Marka said...

I like your photos of the rigging.

diane said...

Interesting shots of parts of the Endeavour.Must try to get there before we leave Sydney.

Joan Elizabeth said...

As always with you ... it's the detail that wins. It is quite amazing how small those ships were that went off to sea for months on end ... not my cup of tea at all.

Beautiful blues!!!

Happy Sky Watch Friday!

paul said...

Great detail shots there, fantastic. And the geometry of the rigging is fascinating. And the sky, of course...

Ann said...

I know you don't like post but I think the bottom shot is a prime candidate for removing the intrusion at the left and possibly the small one at the centre. Love the top one (and the bottom one too).

Wonderful detailed shots. And the blue of the sky is a viewy blue.
