Working Harbor

With all the glamorous shots that are generally shown of Sydney Harbour, many may not be aware that this is a working harbor, as well as a site for sunning, sailing, and admiring the view. Huge ocean liners pull in at Circular Quay to unload passengers. Massive cargo ships carry the goods of commerce, and commercial fishing boats unload their hauls in the various bays and coves that line the sprawling harbor. And the navy has a pretty solid presence there, too. Usually, the pleasure seekers are far separate from the practical side of the harbor, but not always, and I was amused to see the juxtaposition below of motor boat and military might.
