Armoured personnel carrier at a crossing


An old, armoured personnel carrier at a crossing rolled through the streets of Sydney today and parked just outside of Australia Square. There were few television crews, lots of reporters and photographers and yet no one could tell me what the occasion or the reason for it to be there was. It created a little sessantion as it was parked in a very busy spot during the lunch time.

Architecture and people


This photograph of very heavy, angled concrete columns is probably an easily recognisable place for many Sydney based people. If you work or have lunch at Australia Square you probably passed these many times.

The columns create an interesting perspective with their triangular void space, as if they lead to some focal point where people cross from the street to the inner open space of the eateries and offices. It is an impressive, older style architecture, which seems a bit boxy and heavy these days.
