Definitely taken back then. Sydney looks nothing like that now. Sydney looks like Vancouver with double the skyscrapers!

Love all the old tall ships!!

That's something that sucks so bad about Brisbane. It's port area is crap and there's nowhere to go (that we are allowed) to get close to the mouth of the river to photograph ships. And the port is so ugly that Cruise ships rarely visit.

It was put together from prints taken back then.

Well we have moved out of the old Igloo into one of those new fangled houses.

You get that huh Greg? People thinking Canada is that backward :) We get it about Aussie sometimes as well. Funny how you can be world leaders in several technogies but some still think you are a 3rd world country :)

OH yeah we get it. It is fun pulling their leg about having to go out and get the dog team harnessed because you just heard the seal migration is coming. They don't even consider that you are chatting on a computer to them.
