A picture named seidicon.jpg







Rose Seidler House in the northern suburb of Wahroonga is a local domestic architectural icon -- by famous and controversial local architect Harry Seidler. Each year in its grounds there is a  50s festival - bobbysoxers etc.  The panorama is from inside the kitchen. It was extremely windy in Sydney yesterday -- bad enough at the festival but later it the day it became really bad - a mini civic disaster -- here a pic from this morning from my neighbourhood of a large section of roofing stuck in a tree.

Here a panorama from Sydney Fish Market (in Pyrmont just to the west of the city) yesterday -- the pelicans know when its feeding time and assemble like a little fleet.  A couple of weeks ago the market authority launched its major redevelopment proposal for the area -- longer jetties, boulevardes, multistorey carpark ...

A picture named echoicon.jpg







Continuing my touristic wanderings this week I hopped on the train yesterday and headed up the mountains to Katoomba (100k west of Sydney) - panorama. Charles Darwin described the mountain scenery thus in a visit to the valley edge in 1836: .. .."Walking on a few yards one stands on the brink of a vast precipice...If we imagine a winding harbour with its deep water surrounded by bold cliff-like shores, laid dry, and a forest sprung up on its sandy bottom, we should then have the appearance and structure here exhibited. This kind of view was to me quite novel, and extremely magnificent."
