Theme Day - Shadow & Highlight


Last weekend, I tramped around beneath the southern approaches to the Harbour Bridge, in an attempt to reproduce the attached 1927 image. I think the photographer had been on the first floor balcony of a terrace behind me to get his elevation. Where I captured the Opera House on Bennelong Point, he captured the Tram Sheds! The icing on the cake for me was the troupe of "Bridge Climbers".

Interesting to compare yours and the period photo. There's a period photo I'd love to reproduce, but it would require access to a building I can't get into here.

You've chosen very well indeed for the theme!

Gorgeous sight, great composition!

Bob Crowe said...

Can't have more contrast than that. I love that you got the little opera house between the pillars.

Linda said...

Great contrast! The people looks so tiny!

Joe said...

It is interesting trying to take photographs from the same position as someone else and even more interesting when it when he first one was taken so very long ago.

When I have clicked on the thumbnail-link from citydailyphoto.org, I had not expected to find what I can look now. It is a beautiful views from pillars to opera. Great!
