Up in Sydney visiting my son a week or so back, and apart from spending hours sailing around the Harbour in glorious weather with him and his girlfriend we decided to spend a few hours on Cockatoo Island. For those that can remember, this Island has been off limits for over 100 years, as it was used for a naval shipyard among other things. Many of Australia’s wartime and merchant shipping was built here and the old machinery, cranes and slipways are fascinating material for photographers. I loved the way the sunstars worked on the cranes and other icons and decided to show some of the monochrome results from that visit. I have uploaded just a few of the many I took of this fascinating place.
