Took these on the last day of Autumn (yesterday).

It was cold, but still a great day to be outside.

George Street



The sun struggles to reach street level



Sea of Cranes





and same along the Pitt St Mall











And here's one of many demolition, closing down or relocation sales taking place across the city as the first of several redevelopments of major CBD shopping centres start to take shape. This one is for HMV at the Mid City Centre, and they will have to be out by months end for start of work in September.



Hobbyco is on the move too





Adidas Store



Sydney Arcade





Chifley Square



Anyone up for an Armani?



Angel Place & 115 Pitt St (undergoing refurbishment)



Vacant Building in Kent St



Druitt St



Even in good times, people are always left behind...

sydney CBD becomes dark and cold during winter months. if you want sunlight/warmth you go on the citys edges like Circular quay,walsh bay,king st wharf,Darling harb ect.

I usually find that it is colder in the city in the suburbs due to the lack of sun.
Some streets like Hunter St have lit shops and offices all days as it gets so dark.

I walked through Hyde Park today and there was plenty of sun. The height restrictions have mostly done the job of ensuring the park still gets sun.

Sydney's CBD is a lost cause. The sooner it's nuked, the better ;)

Great shots but what's fall? Surely not the American term for Autumn? Oh well I guess you can use what ever term, but I can still grumble! :rant:

Did I mention great shots. :)

I used fall to two reasons in the title. There were two messages that i was conveying in the thread.

1. These shots were of the city on the last day of Autumn (fall)
2. Sydney is coming out of a lull as reflected by an increase in cranage and development. It also includes current and upcoming redevelopments.
