One of the entrances to St James Station in Sydney, possibly not much changed from when my parents started dating over 60 years ago (they met on a blind date at Museum Station). Being on the platform is like stepping back in time – the old-style advertisements, the tiles so reminiscent of a time long gone, except in memory. And Chateau Tanunda Brandy? It’s been around since 1880 … a little longer than St James Station, and quite a bit longer than my mum and dad!
A change of scene today. We were in Sydney a few weekends ago – the only fine weekend Sydney has had all month apparently. We did the obligatory walk around Circular Quay, mostly because Michelle works near there and we were catching up with her for lunch.
Look at this shot, and let your eyes go out of focus slightly, and then tell me which way the bridge runs.
I’m a long way from the cold and greyness of Melbourne … but this produce calls Lygon St to mind.
I’m a long way from the cold and greyness of Melbourne … and this image shows just how far.
