This is the other Sydney. From time to time there are stories in the UK media of honeymoon couples who thought they had found an amazingly cheap deal to the Sydney in Australia only to find themselves in Nova Scotia. An easy mistake to make...................!!?

Interesting set Ossie. I am wondering about the street lights. Are they decorative or functional?
We do hear once in while about the Oakland, California and Auckland, NZ passengers ending up
at unintended destinations.

I had planned a trip there but logistics got in the way. I hope for more images.

Smulnik, Sury and JbTaylor Thank you for your comments

The Lights are an art installation. Unfortunately I do not know if they are functional or not as I did not see them at night although I see no reason why they should not be.

Here are three more images

In the old town of Lunenberg

The Lighthouse at the most easterly part of Newfoundland and the point on the North American continent that is closest to Europe actually Ireland. St John's the nearest town is approximately 4/5 hours flying time to the UK

The old town of Lunenberg has some very interesting architecture including some from the Victorian era. The image below may not be for the purists but I just could not resist playing around with this image in Photoshop and Nik filters. It looked creepy enough in bright sunshine but at night would probably not have looked out of place in some horror movie.

Good follow on Ossie. I am curious how the 3rd one look like without the Nik effect.
Would it evoke the feelings that are orthogonal to what filter is doing though you did
mention it was looking creepy enough in the bright light?
