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

Find out why Sydney has become the city that it is today:

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.
