To NSW(13): 01.01.2010 Sydney harbour bridge walk, yeah!!!

The Sydney harbour bridge walk, I guessed it’s a must-do list while visiting Sydney. The experience of walking across the famous bridge and looking at the design of the bridge up close and all the good views from the bridge make the walk definitely worth the energy and time!!!

I also don’t know why i still have the energy left in me to do the walk after a late night NYE 2010, LOL. Anyway, enjoy the walk with me :)

The beginning of the walk starts from the rocks.

One have to climb some stairs to get to the cahill expressway where the bridge is.

Somehow while i was there, I suddenly found that steel constructions with the dimmer sun light behind really make amazing photos!!! Love it!!! Have seen some professional photographers taken beautiful photos at construction sites, didn’t thought I would experience the beauty of this steel structures here!!!

Again nice views of the bridge from different angle!!! Somehow I felt I appreciate the bridge architecture and design from those different close-up angle rather than looking at it from far!!!

Then off to the notorious red light district of Sydney call King cross, lol. Didn’t take many photos as we don’t to offend anyone there, but yeah, it’s pub+bar+prostitute+steel poll lady area!!! 2 rows of shops that lined the st with big size body built bodyguards cum promoters to pull customers in, haha. Can’t help but being offer some business card, asking us to go in and have a PEEP!!! Wondered is it just a peep or it’s like a one way door that u can get in but not allow u to get out until you pay for service, lol. The whole place is colourful lit with all the shope lit in LEDs lights.
