Sydney Walk

Post by pop511 » Sun Aug 19, 2018 10:52 am

To walk through any city and take pictures intensifies your feelings and for you Stateside, Appleton, Green Bay, L.A. and Chicago come to mind.
In Europe with it's ancient history is where this old man wants to spend the next 1000 years.
Sydney Tower.
When built, it was the tallest structure. These days, I am sure someone is looking out of his/her office window looking down on it. At the top of the tower there is a viewing platform and a revolving restaurant. Highlight on right side is not P/shopped. It's the sun shining through the leaves.
Turn around 180% and you are looking at the the Archibald Fountain. Lots of fun walking around it taking many pictures. In the background is St Mary's Cathedral.
High up on the hill in the old quarter is a place called Observatory Hill. The observatory is over 100 years and still being used. On top of the tower you can see a yellow ball. In the days of sail this was dropped at midday so that ships can obtain correct time if needed.

Nice architectural images to fill out our “tour of Sydney” . I especially like the last, because of the nice warm light splayed across the structure.
