Shot Notes

This is the view you get of the Sydney Harbour Bridge as a pedestrian commuter. You can pay over $200 to climb up to the top. Due to increasing insurance costs it is unlikely they would let me take 2.7kg of camera and lens with me while I climb.

Can this qualify as Mechanography if it has no moving mechanism?

    Bridges move all the time. There should at least be some huge expansion plates on that thing to cope with the change in size as the weather changes.

    OK, we will include it in Mechanography. It should get extra points for using a brunelian quantity of steel.

    Did the bridge climb years ago, they don’t allow you to take cameras at all, in fact no personal possessions,…plus they breathalise you before you’re allowed to climb :)

    I could not justify the cost when you can not take your camera. The same was true of the Philip Island Penguin’s. Even though my camera has no flash, They would not let me in with it as they said the sight of me taking photos would encourage others who do have a flash. My first penguin encounter will have to wait for another day.
