Grey geometry
















Grey morning today. No soft pinks at sunrise, no crisp blues, no golden syrup, no harsh blinding sun. Suddenly I realise how much of Sydney's beauty lies with its extraordinary light. Without it and for its grey geometry this could be an (ex) Eastern block city. But I like the composition. Where is this ? Philip Street. The sandstone façade in the right bottom corner is the Museum of Sydney.

I've got to make something like this too! It shows the big city. Any big city.
Nice discussion going on about fair dinkum btw ;)

I love this photo! It would make a great painting, or even an art quilt. The subtle colors are great.

Hi from San Diego! Really nice photo, even without the sun. This is my 1st visit to your blog and I've enjoyed Syndney through your eyes!

Excellent composition, cascading buildings and it reminds me a day in Tokyo.

John, I've posted the two translations on your website.
Jing, the translations with Babelfish are absolutely hopeless, only good if you want to have the best laugh in your life.
Thanks all for your kind comments.
