My Australian Journey #8: Rainbows, sunsets and street performers

I’ve realised that I have way too many pictures from Sydney, if there is such a thing as too many. I am trying to upload all of my favourite shots from Australia on Instagram throughout August, and even by uploading three a day I will probably not get done until mid September. This is troublesome because I will have been in the UK for a couple of weeks already, and would have already been to Berlin and back!


So I either have to upload at a more rapid pace (like 5 or 6 times a day to Insta) or I have to sort through my favourite pictures and find the best of the best. The S.A.S of snaps which I have done already, but narrowing down a second time will be hard. But it is a good dilemma to have, I would much rather have too many than not enough.


With each photo I take I have more and more of a desire to buy a professional camera. All of my current photos are on an old school Iphone 5s, and still I really like the quality of the pictures on it. I cannot imagine how good it would be to be in possession of a quality camera or drone, and how much more of a desire I would have to get out and about with it. We are lucky to have great cameras on our phones these days, but I know if I had a proper camera I wouldn’t look back.


And I dropped this in water very early on in my Australian journey, around the same time I took this shot. I was at a party, went down to grab a beer and splash, iPhone dropped to the bottom of the bucket of icy water below. But it has lasted all this time, with just one replaced charger port since then. It has served me well.

So I have a very busy upload schedule to stick to, and thank you to those that have followed me on Instagram. I haven’t been this active on the app before but I am enjoying it. It is great for photos.

And I will leave you with this video of the glorious sunset and rainbow I got to experience in Sydney, not long after a storm. It was a very memorable ferry ride and I remember feeling lucky to witness it on the ferry. I also remember feeling pretty damn lucky to be able to travel to the other side of the world and enjoy moments like this, reminding me why I enjoy travel so much.

I hope you enjoy the clip!

  1. Love the photos! I went to school for photography and sometimes think it was a waste of time. But I did learn some useful info…like, you don’t need an expensive camera to take good, quality pictures. It’s all in the user…I would’ve never guessed you were using a iPhone. Honestly!! Although it is nice to have a “good” camera,it is not necessary.
    Keep up the good work!

    1. I like to think so :p I do like using my iPhone and because of the quality of the shots I haven’t felt rushed to get a camera. I would like one, however thank you so much for the kind words regarding my current photos. I shall be taking plenty more from the phone!


  2. that is a beautiful photo. and I’m with you, I think the photos I take with my phone are as good as I need, plus not having a separate camera is one less thing I have to carry with me (or worry about dropping in a bucket of ice water!)

  3. Just two thoughts: 1- good cameras are overrated :)., capturing the mood is more important, and your pictures are awsome 2 – you do not need to be shy on Instagram, 5-6 a day is great

    1. Thank you for the feedback! I agree getting a good camera doesn’t guarantee good photographs, it is about much more than that. I am pleased you don’t mind 5 or 6 uploads a day as well as I may have to do this. I hope you enjoy them 🙂

      Thanks for the comments and I hope you have a great day!
