McMahons Point, Wednesday 28th February 2007.

Blues Point Tower, built in the early 1960's, was the city's first modern high rise apartment building. It is one of Sydney’s most  controversial landmarks and considered by many to be an eyesore, or at least inconsistent with its surrounding buildings or cityscape. Arguments aside, the tower foreshadowed a marked change in the way we would live. 40 years on, high rise city living is now increasingly sought after. (If you look carefully on the right you can make out the stick figures of people on the Bridge climb)

I had planned to photograph the departure of the QE2 this evening, but unexpected rain and some traffic chaos put paid to that. Instead here is a photo from last night of the QE2's bow opposite the Opera House.

Garden Island, Tuesday 20th February 2007.

The world's largest ocean liner, The Queen Mary 2, arrived in Sydney early this morning. It's only here for 18 hours to pickup passengers and supplies before resuming it's maiden world cruise tonight. It is so big that it could only berth at the Naval Dockyard and not the normal terminal for cruise liners.

Rose Bay, Monday 19th February 2007.

On a small stretch of public beach this bungalow has a swimming pool that juts out onto the sand. Not very private and the neglected pool is full of dirty green water. I wonder how the owners ever got permission to place a pool there.

Sydney Harbour Bridge, Monday 12th February 2007.

In the midst of a drought rain is welcome stuff, but the heavy rain that has fallen across the city over the last two days has caused local flooding and damaged buildings. The good news is that it is reaching the dams, although we would need weeks of constant heavy rain to return dam levels to an acceptable level. They are currently at 34% capacity.

Kent Street, Thursday 8th February 2007.

Only minutes after I took this photo the sky had clouded over completely and the threat of thunderstorms hung heavily in the morning air. What I found interesting about this scene were the terrace houses built in the mid 1880's dwarfed by the apartment block built 100 years later. I often wonder what things will look like after another century has passed.
