A moment in life #28

A corner of Sydney that I see almost everyday from my balcony. Sometimes, when it’s raining, the scene is so much different. I wonder how the old city looked like?

Sydney - a different corner

“Here was my city, immense, overpowering, flooded with energy and light… And there was I, breasting the March wind, drinking in the city and sky, both vast, yet both contained in me, transmitting through me the great mysterious will that had made them and the promise of the new day that was still to come…”

Robert Drewe (From the Introduction to a book called Book of the City)

    This is too weird – this is exactly the sort of thing I was pondering while writing my latest post. I love how misty everything looks – just gorgeous.

    So lovely — you can see a bit of the Opera House? I know there are still some old parts of Sydney, but they seem smaller and smaller.

    Gorgeous photo and great view in the morning. I love city views-hubby is soothed by the view of water but I am soothed by twinkling lights :)

    Oh WOW! You get a view of THE Bridge on the left and the Sails of the Opera house on the left – simply amazing view! I fell in love with the Harbour Bridge when I visited Syd back in 1988 – as a student in Melb… I think the skyline HAS changed a lot since then…
