^no worries.
Sydney GPO clock tower
some facts
Standing 73m tall (80m with flagstaff), it was Sydney's tallest structure on completion in 1887.Its 65m high lookout (just under green lantern) was highest in oz for years. it was opened to public from 2-4pm daily if you could walk up the spiral stairs.
It was architects James barnets largest work being 107m long.
the tower was actually dismantled in 1942 in fear of beng bombed by japense in ww2. It was rebuilt 16 years later in time for Anzac day 1965.

Centrepoint Tower/ Sydney Tower looks great looming over the top of those historic buildings.

Is it Centrepoint Tower or Sydney Tower?

I loved visiting sydney. Wonderful city and the people are the ones the closest to Montreal in mentality (laidback) IMO.

You need to buy a 10.5 (and defish the pics) or 12mm lens. I'd love to see shots with more stuff
