Moving now from the Shopping Village via the back streets towards South Dowling Street, the morning light being one of my motives for the photos.
Yes, you have seen that jacaranda and that car before…

Still harvesting my walk from Elizabeth Street through the back streets to South Dowling Street, here in Baptist Street and Maddison Street, again in morning light.

Here I am on the prowl for images again, this time today, while going to the doc, Centrelink, and the chemist…

Little Eveleigh Street has changed little since M and I lived there 17 years ago, though there have been quite a few changes in the area – more on that later.

James O’Brien drew our attention to (of all things) the toilets in the new Beresford Hotel in Bourke Street Surry Hills. Well, having been there this afternoon – where I met up with James and The Other Andrew and a few others — I know what he means. As James says:

Oh yes, I’ve been on the job, people, covering this morning a demo at Sydney Town Hall, even if the big media guns out-equip me!
Good to see a very recognisable Bob Gould (1937-2011) still keeping a grandfatherly eye on things.
Neither of those are pics I will submit to the South Sydney Herald, as I did get better ones… And had a lovely chat with a woman demonstrator who turns out to have been an English teacher, one of the bright young things of 1972 I recall from my Wollongong days.
Yesterday’s assignment did yield one passing human drama though, in Oxford Street:
This is what they were doing…
