Manly & Sydney by Ferry

Posted in General at 9:30 pm by Warren Williams

Third and final day in Sydney, took a lovely ferry trip from Circular Quay to Manly, enjoying the sights of Sydney Harbour. Manly is another popular surf beach, located North of the harbour entrance. The beach was swarmed with people as well as an apparently unusual seaweed washed ashore, in the autumn heat.

Part of the bus tour also included a trip out to the Eastern suburbs and Bondi Beach. Bondi is one of the world’s most well known beaches, with its aboriginal name meaning “water breaking over rocks”

Fire! Horse float ignites

Posted in Animals, General, Nature at 10:03 pm by Warren Williams

Whilst returning from a trip to Dover on the A260 shortly before the A2, came across a truck with horse float trailer, which had just started pluming smoke before rapidly igniting and engulfing the truck in massive fireballs. Fortunately no people or horses were harmed.


Fifteen seconds after ignition!

Samantha and her daughter Lilly-Mai, made excellent subjects in the ever changing conditions at Danson Park. The leaves started to fall just a couple of weeks back, creating a perfect opportunity to head out for some fun shots.

Waterloo Graffiti

Posted in General, People at 5:38 pm by Warren Williams

Leake Street, which runs underneath Waterloo station, used to be a taxi rank for the past ten years, until Waterloo International was closed when Eurostar moved to St Pancras Station. Earlier in 2008, a graffiti show was unveiled, featuring work of Banksy and ever since, it has remained legal to paint as you wish. Spent most of the afternoon here with fellow photographers, before heading to Blackfriars bridge for the big meetup.
