Water taxi, Darling Harbour


The first of the month brings Daily Photo Theme Day - this month Taxis. Here's a Sydney water taxi.

I am having a few days break with my family on the NSW South Coast. Not sure whether I can post from there - mobile phones don't often work, so what chance wireless internet??? I have posted some photos below so you can feast your eyes on the place that most nourishes my soul, until we return later in the week.

Follow these links to see taxis around the world (PS posted early as I leave on holiday, so come back later to see the other taxis if they're not up already):

  6. Hey! I drove to a headland near the house and am on wireless.

    This was taken in the middle of winter....a pretty typical Sydney winter sky.

    Now is just beautiful, and I ma feasting my eyes on forest-covered mountains (?) - well, hills, and blue, blue turquoise and sapphire seas....such are the provations!

  11. Beautiful shot! Funny how Venice is the only place that comes to mind thinking of water taxis. I wonder how many other cities use them? I can't think of any others, but then I wouldn't have thought of Sydney either....
