Sydney - Jan06

Just a few shots that I've taken downtown over the past couple of weeks. It's been a while since I've posted anything decent from Sydney.

The monorail whizzing over Park St



Shangri La & Quay West



The almost complete KENS rising over Kent St



The Seidler Brothers



Demolition of a building in George St has revealed an old facade -



World Square. After taking this shot, I was told to stop taking photos by a guard



A group of skywalkers atop Sydney Tower.



Governor Phillip and Macquarie Towers



Another one of GPT



Farrer Place



Looking down towards the Harbour





Shangri - La



Cove was a feeling a bit shy the day I took this



Cahill Expressway



Gloucester St

Cool

The monorail may be crap as a transport system, but it does look cool in pictures.

And I love the brutal-ness of the Cahill Expressway.

I wonder if the Cahill will ever be undergrounded ? It's only a cosmetic thing really - no real functional improvement. I guess there's plenty more urgent infrastucture projects to concentrate on first like light rail right next door to it !

Those photo's of the Governor Phillip and Macquarie Tower look beautiful! They really blend in well with the cloudy sky! And my favourite is definitely that World Square photo! It's AWESOME! But wtf? A guard told you to stop taking photo's? Stupid turd.
