Why do you hate the people, what is about us that is not to your taste?

BTW there are some great pics in the last couple of pages, well done finding them guys. Some of the Melbourne pics are stunning. I always love the vista from City West link of Sydney, it's a beautiful view from that angle, esp with the sun to the west of the CBD.

When ever I'm in Sydney I feel there is a divide in people, like no one can accept anyone if they don't have things is common. It's like they don't know how to live with difference...

Yup that's why we draw imaginary demarcation lines all around the city and refuse to associate with those from areas less desirable.

If you walk over a line you get an electric shock.

We can live with differences we just choose not too.

I think it was not photoshoped... The deep blue sky effect here comes from the Polorizing filter, which, btw eliminates the sunlight reflex on the leaves and on the water. The result is what you see.
