Story behind the photograph
Sydney is going through one of the most dramatic make over in a long time. There is hardly a street without a major redevelopment taking place. In the Pitt Street Mall this is perhaps more visible then anywhere else. The mall has to endure the noise and partial closures as development takes place on both of its sides.
All this building activity ads to new social mix in the city. In addition to regular business people and shoppers an army of builders is present in its center. Here, in the photograph a large group of workers is having lunch and some rest in the Pitt Street Mall. They often enjoy performances by frequent busker, or simply watch people going by.
