About Sydney and the Street Photography Collection

Sydney is a vibrant cosmopolitan city that has all the nice features a world center should have, allowing its citizens and visitors to enjoy a wide abacus of possibilities in every aspect of the city-life-style. Its unique effervescence brings together a vast array of cultural and artistic forms to create a good amount of excitement, without scarifying a harmonious environment with a pleasant urban design, which allows for some peace and quiet in between.

The photographs here shown reflect the clean, orderly beauty of Sydney's streets, dotted with art, design, music, fashion, excellent summer weather and beautiful blue skies.

Sydney's street photography couldn’t be complete without two of Australia’s monumental icons, the Sydney Harbor Bridge and the Sydney Opera House, which of course had to be included; nevertheless, while walking the streets of this cosmopolitan city, there are many other items that catch the eye.

I have particularly made an emphasis in Sydney’s architecture and urban quality, taking shots of the unique and beautiful buildings in Old Sydney, near the harbor –otherwise known as The Rocks-, the Down Town Area and the Italian Village.

Sydney's Assets

Besides the world renowned Sydney Opera House and the rich art museums, which include the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney has its own theater and dance companies, its own film, comedy and music festivals, its own fashion week and many outdoor events during summer.

Apart from the cultural offer, the Australian metropolis also has tranquil green areas and parks embedded throughout the city that, in unison with Sydney Harbor, keep the presence of nature always visible. The area surrounding Sydney includes preserved national parks and a couple of beaches for surfers, water sport geeks and weekenders who like to spend time near the ocean.

During summer, sport events thrive in and around Sydney with international competitions such as the Rolex Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race(December), the Surfing Australian Open held at Manly Beach –known as the birth place of surfing-, and the Sydney Cricket Ground, among many others.

Sydney has ranked among the top 10 most livable cities in the world according to different authorities in the matter, who have evaluated the complete package of city-life-variables, and have come to the conclusion that these are performing at top level in this particular city.

Hi, Claudia

I would love to visit Australia. I have an ambition to do a fishing and culinary tour, fishing by day and eating by night. Did you try the famous Aussie version of fish and chips?

Always enjoy reading great info like this about the country.

Hi Gordon! I find your fishing and culinary tour a great idea, Australia has some beautiful fishing spots. I actually wrote a Hub about one of them, "Cape Don" in the Northern Territory, I’ve included a link to it in the Australia Travel Photography Box at the bottom of this hub if you are interested in checking it out.

Yes, I did try the Aussie fish and chips version, nice :)

Thanks for dropping by and commenting! I am always glad and honored to see you back visiting one of my hubs.

Nice work with some of even the smallest things around the water and city which are more often than not overlooked by the business people rushing about to get to work on time or get home in peak hour traffic.

DeviousOne, thanks for your interest and comments, I really appreciate your feedback on this hub, especially coming from someone living in Sydney. I love to walk around the cities I visit and take in the city life making interesting street photography in the process. It is true that sometimes the citizens of the city overlook their own treasures; that might happen to me too here in Mexico City.

Good hub Claudia. I had lived in Sydney for just over 30 years and only left at the end of 2005 seeking a less urban lifestyle elsewhere. I still have lots of family and friends living in Sydney and your photos do bring back some fond memories.


Claudia Tello profile image

Claudia Tello 4 years ago from Mexico Author

Hey Ausemade! Wow! 30 years in Sydney! you should also write something about it! You might have much more to say than I do.

I am glad my street photography of Sydney was enjoyable for you.

Hope you are enjoying your relocation wherever you are :)

All the best,

Claudia

Hi there no doubts those are some amazing snaps...I'm here in the central city Phillips street at the moment and was wondering how can I get some good glimpses of the best of Sydney on feet...especially opera house


Claudia Tello profile image

Claudia Tello 4 years ago from Mexico Author

Hi Clueless, thanks for the compliments on my pictures, they always make me happy :) You should take a walk along Sydney´s Harbor Promenade, from which you will get to appreciate the Opera House from many different angles. It´s nice to see it from "The Rocks" (see Sydney Cove in the map), in old Sydney, and also from very close-by for detailed aspects of this architectural icon.
