Photographer's Note

ENGLISH: This is a scuttled Hopper barge in Berry's Bay, Waverton on Sydney's North Shore. It was scuttled in 1948. The park you see to the left is Sawmiller's Reserve, a beautiful place to have a picnic on a sunny afternoon. Berry's Bay was where two launches and a barge were moored, these seacraft being responsible for quarantine inspections in the early part of the 20th Century. I found it quite unusual that something like this would be scuttled in a prime part of Sydney Harbour.

A Hopper Barge is a type of non-motorised barge with an iron hull, usually designed to carry soil, rubbish and other materials out to sea or to reclaim land.

You can see a previous photo here: Hopper Barge I taken at high tide.

In my Workshops you can see other POVs taken in different light and a B&W.

ITALIANO: Questo un barcone Hopper affondato in Berry's Bay del soborgho Waverton, nord di Sydney Harbour. Era affondata nel anno 1948. Il parco si vede a sinistra si chiama Sawmiller's Reserve, un bel posto per prendere un caff tranquilla al mattino o da bere una birra fredda.
