Ben and Patricia decided to do the environmentally friendly public transport thing for their Sydney Harbour rainy engagement session and we headed round the city on the trains and ferries, making use of where we were, rather than just where we were going, to shoot their engagement session. And that was a good thing.
It meant, not only did we get blown away at Milsons Point train station, but we also experienced the full weather that a bitterly wintery and rainy Sydney can provide on the Manly Ferry.
And for someone without sea-legs (me!) that meant it was a real adventure as the ferry was buffeted by, what seemed like, massive seas. Those that do it daily probably laugh in the face of the storm but for those of us who aren’t used to it you get this real urge to kiss the ground.
Ben and Patricia went to the back deck of the ferry, as we journeyed across the harbour both ways. It’s a great backdrop especially since everyone else decided the deck was a little too exposed and windswept and left us to it.
After Many we made the decision to head over to Cockatoo Island for an hour or so (do check ferry timetables by the way! You don’t want to decide to come back only to discover the ferry leaving when you’re 100 metres away from it).
But what a great city we have for photography. And it’s so nice to see it this way, tripping around with two people in love.
Congratulations Ben and Patricia.
