I love to visit Sydney where I was born, and taking pictures is always part of the scene. I thought you may like to see some that I took on recent jaunts ... They are not iconic Sydney, but more unusual angles and happenings. These particular shots are mostly in the bustling CBD with its shops and offices.
Enticing window displays are everywhere ...
As are flowers, captured in troughs and pots to soften the landscape.
My daughter Lynne and I made this trip together and here she is casting her designer's eye over the plants.
Somehow the plants survive the traffic fumes.
As does this gentleman taking a rest in the middle of it all.
It's probably safer for him to sleep in the middle of the day rather than at night ...
Bright colour dots the grey ...
I like the angles and curves in this one.
And the Victorian glamour of the magnificent State Theatre. It still shows movies but the organ that accompanied the films for years has disappeared. This is just a glimpse of the street foyer.
We walked our legs off that day, did a little shopping and then shouted ourselves a meal at the fish markets. Here you can choose the greatest freshest sea food, ponder how it will be prepared and eat it there and then sitting on the wharves.
What dish would choose? Or would more shopping be your thing?
