Face masks order of the day as Sydney faces dust storm

Although by midday the dust settled a lot many people, including this couple, in Sydney streets opted to wear face masks as the dust made the breathing very uncomfortable.

I have noticed almost all sellers of “The Big Issue” were equipped with face masks too, as they spend countless ours outdoors trying to make a leaving by selling the newspaper. I have asked one of them for a photograph but he declined.
