About this location...

Cockatoo Island can be a paradise for photographers, to some, it may even be too over-exposed. So to me the problem is finding a new angle, a new way to shoot. I checked out quite a lot of existing photos before I set sail, so internally I gave myself some extra restrictions--I did not want to be another Mr. Jones.

I show 3 different perspectives here. one from a DSLR, one from my newly acquired mobile phone (sorry not an iPhone, fanboys ), one from an instant film camera I borrowed from my daughter. Of course at the end all three were edited on my computer. The final results are cliche or not is up to you.

The location:

I like the "plain" look of the island, not weekend or not on any special events. Please check their official website to avoid the mob, or if special event is what you like.

Cockatoo Island is a heritage-listed island in the middle of beautiful Sydney Harbour. Hop on a ferry and explore the island for the day or stay overnight in the campground or holiday houses.

Getting to Cockatoo Island:

Getting to Cockatoo Island is easy with regular Harbour City Ferries daily services from Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and other inner harbour wharfs. Harbour City Ferries currently operates services to Cockatoo Island via the Balmain/Woolwich service and the Parramatta River service. Ferries depart from Circular Quay and other wharves. Some services also connect to Darling Harbour or to Woolwich and Balmain.
