Entry to MLC Centre building


Here is one of the more fascinating architectural elements in Sydney – the entry to the MLC Centre building. I guess depending on the mood this massive structure can look like an inviting protective umbrella or mouth of some monster. It has endless straight and curved lines and shades and it is certainly photogenic. It is quite difficult to photograph due to the size of it as well as the light distribution. I have tried to capture it on numerous occasions but I think this is one of the better photographs I’ve taken of the place. Symmetry as you can see plays a major role in this design making the building entry an unquestionable focal point.

Dust haze across New South Wales


Fine dust particles gold and yellow in colour were blown over large sections of New South Wales from central Australia. The Bureau of Meteorology somehow differentiated this phenomenon from the dust storms we experienced in late September. Apparently a dust storm and dust blown in by wind are not the same.

The photograph shows the dust coming from Sydney over the Central Coast, reducing visibility to few hundred meters. The photograph was taken from President Hill in Gosford just before midday.
