My second photowalk with my new Canon 60D DSLR was much more enjoyable and successful than yesterday’s efforts, for a start the weather was much better, even sunny for brief periods.

I was also much more confident with the new camera, after the previous day’s experience learning my way around the settings and menus so I can get the shots the way I want.

I’m pretty sure I’m falling in gadget-lust with the 60D, it truly is a pretty fantastic bit of camera hardware.

So here’s a slide-show of a few of the better shots I snapped, most of which were taken at the “Chinese Garden of Friendship“, which is located at the southern end of Darling Harbor in Sydney, it’s a beautiful place.

Initiated by the local Chinese community to share their rich cultural heritage and celebrate Australia’s 1988 Bicentenary, the Chinese Garden is the result of a close bond of friendship and cooperation between the sister cities of Sydney and Guangzhou in Guangdong Province, China.
