An old vintage sign by carriage works. The location by the old Eveleigh railway yards which were built between 1880-1889. Was used as a railway workshop that was closed in 1988.
The Manhattan Bridge with the Empire State Building.
The Manhattan Bridge is a suspension bridge which has a main span of 1,470ft (448m) with 3,224 ft (983 m) long suspension cables. Building commenced in 1901 and was first open on December 31, 1909, even though the final completion wasn't until 1912.
The Chrysler Building in NYC.
Such an iconic building with so much heritage which is confused with the empire state building by most tourists. It was the world's tallest building when it was completed on May 27th 1930 for 11 months (surpassed by the Empire State building in 1931). The ground breaking occured on Sept. 19th 1928 and was built at an average four floors per week. No workers died during the construction even though it was built so quickly.
This is the iconic CocaCola sign in Kings Cross, Sydney.
First erected in 1974 it was later removed to be upgraded in 2016. Pieces of this icon were auctioned off raising $100,700 for the wayward chapel. The new sign is much more power effective and is the largest controllable LED in the southern hemisphere.
A little bird that seemed rather interested in a friend and me.
We were walking along the foreshore and this little soul followed us for most of our trip. He is what you call a Honeyeater and is an endemic species of Australia. They are what you call a nectarivore so their diet is mostly composed of the nectar of flowering plants.
The lights at the old Melbourne treasury building.
The Old Treasury Building was build in 1852 to 1862 and used house the gold bullion during the gold rush era.
Mirror at a parking ramp.
I think of the saying "the beauty of repetition". You see patterns and you think, how interesting. It's not just in the visual landscape, music is full of repetitions and when there are none it's considered ugly and chaotic. Perhaps it's our mind trying to cope of the disorderly and when we see these moments of beauty it calms the mind.
Reaching for the rain.
I worry in our current time what will we do when our resources become incredibly finite. This sense of the world composed of little islands, nations. Thinking my island is the best and my island and their inhabitants are the only ones that matter.
Two Billion Dollars
That is how much it cost to be able to take this photograph. This place used to be the location of an old brewery which was bought and developed into Central Park in Sydney. There is still the old archway with a seal of a horse and writen below in latin "Invicta", invincible.
Waves lapping away at sandstone in Sydney Harbour.
I am so fascinated by the scope of time. The idea that the sandstone was created during one of the great extinction events in history, called the great dying around 220 million years ago. During that time it was one of Earth's greatest extinction events. Up 96% of marine life, 70% of terrestrial vertebrates. Being such an extreme event life look almost 10 million years to recoup.

When man changes the natural landscape it creates very unnatural spaces.
