You'll want to click through to Flickr for the original-size version of this - there's lots to see.

In the distance are the black, circular oil tanks, with breakwater beyond that. It looks as though there is a landing craft passing by, a little distance out to sea.

Right from that is the Jordan Road ferry terminal, with lots of buses parked outside it.

You can just see the spike on the top of Capitol Theatre sticking up above the blue & red sign on the right of this photo. It's worth clicking through to Flickr, as it has some interesting notes in the comments.
