"Kirribilli" sounds very funny, i would like to live in a place with such a name!Sally, could you tell me how do you do to post each day at exactly the same hour? Blogger stays mysterious for me on this side...
i like the name Kirribilli and that's a panorama and a half, well done.have a nice weekend Sally.
merci pour ce tres beau panorama.thank you for this very beautiful panorama.
Not a district I've visited yet. It looks an expensive area.
Oh, Sally, now I am a little bit longing for a couple sunny, summer day.But I will look at your photo in the evening, perhaps I can get a summer day in my dream.Have a nice Sunday!
alice - it doesn't matter what time you post you can change it. Where you compose or edit the post, there is a line at the bottom of the box that says "Post and Comment Options" Click on that and it opens up the capacity to change time and date. I usually post before I go to bed - which could be 10pm, or closer to mindnight, but I always just put 12.01 am and the date I want. That's cos I don;t have tome usually to do it in the morning, and there's the danger as the day gets busier, I will forget. So, that's the secret! "Kirribilli" is probably a Europeanisation of an Aboriginal word, like Woolloomooloo was in an earlier post. gail's - yep, it's expensive all right! Smack in the face views of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House (I resisted th obvious temptation....) Apartments here cost multi millions of dollars. mimmu- welcome back. But I am lookign forward to the journey thru a Finnish winter with you!!
Oh my gosh, it's just too gorgious. It so reminds me of San Francisco on a warm day with a class race going on over on the bay in the distance. Only, the buildings in the foreground seem much nicer than those in SF's Marina district. What era was that neighborhood built up in? My bud (mate) Josh never mentioned this place to me when chatting up his hometown. The name is so fun to say. Another place I would love to visit with you in 3D sometime, Sally. Kudos on this shot.-Kim
kim - I think these sort of apartments are 1920s, 1930s. It came in to its own of course after the Harbour bridge opened. It was probably one of the earliest multi-apartment suburbs. There was a fair bit of public housing there, but also the official Sydney residence of the Governor-General and the Prime Minister...gorgeous mansions with lawns down to the water's edge.
I love this suburb. Did you see the whole row of jacarandas down by the bay? I didn't have my camera with me but they were spectacular...
Beautiful panorama shot!
Looks like a great afternoon out... look at all the boats, they look so superb in that wonderful harbour!
Has anybody else heard of pollution problems (specifically lead from the traffic on the bridge sinking down) in Kirribilli?
