Sydney Maritime

Continuing the theme of monochrome week, a full black and white depiction of a view that may seem a bit strange in what one would normally seek in Sydney. The HMAS Vampire was the third of three Australian built Daring class destroyers to serve the Royal Australian Navy being completed in 1959.  She served the RAN for over 20 years, and was finally decommissioned in 1986 and docked at the Australian National Maritime Museum at Darling Harbour.  Several smaller Navy ships join the museum, as well as the fully restored James Craig, built in 1874 (the one that looks like a pirate ship in the background).
