NSW State Library Exhibition – Photos 1440 Review

On 16 March 2021 a group of 22 members attended the NSW State Library Exhibition – Photos 1440 outing which was our first for 2021.

Our group met at Cabarita Wharf for a leisurely trip into Circular Quay.  It is such a nice way to travel into the city – by Rivercraft.  Of course, no outing is complete without having the customary cup of coffee which we did at Daily Extra.  We then headed up Macquarie street to the Library.  Colin Peterson, convenor of the photography group had organised to meet us at the Library.

Not one to miss an opportunity to take a photo, Colin had arranged for his group to meet at 9.30 am in Macquarie Street to take photos of the streetscape and local buildings.
