Hi Jason

Well you may well capture me in your shots as I often use the Ferry landing for photographing inbound vessels :-)

Bit of a 'dream' of mine, but if I won the Lottery I would buy the penthouse at the Brewery Bond - across the road from the Chain Locker and Smiths Dock side of the Ferry Landing.

Regards

Hi Steve

Yes, it is a nice position for shipspotting. It was more through luck than judgement though. Myself and a colleague from down South are up here on an assignment and that place just happened to be available. It was only after moving in that I decided to get my camera out and get some ship shots.

Best Regards

Jason
