Urban Art

I walked past this piece of contemporary art in Sydney this morning.

Amusingly, it seems someone is concerned that passers (or maybe drivers) may be at risk of not realizing what they’re seeing, so it comes complete with advisory signs.

The signs also help by letting you know that the art is over, presumably so that if you see any other cars crushed by a giant rock you’ll try to help the passengers in the vehicle.

‘End Artwork’ is a sign that could be a stand alone social commentary.

Obligatory Location Photo

When one photo lets everyone know where you are.

And for those of you despairing that I have no appreciation for nature.

Camping View

I’ve been staying in Sydney attending a number of meetings of the committees of the Presbyterian Church of Australia this week.

This is as close to camping out as I get.

Here’s the view on a showery Friday evening in Haymarket/Ultimo looking toward Glebe.

The building directly opposite is covered in plants, which seem to be flourishing.

Early Morning Sydney

Every morning on my walk around Sydney this week the same sights keep catching my eyes. It’s not all bin chickens and free-range bikes.

I can’t imagine I’d ever find it boring.

Yes They Have A Shrubbery

A whimsical addition just outside the entrance to the building where our meetings are taking place this week is this shrubbery.
The only thing that it might need would be a second shrubbery, placed beside the first shrubbery, only slightly higher so you get the two-level effect with a little path running down the middle.

Orange Bikes In Sydney

This year the free-range bikes in Sydney have turned orange. (One seemed to be yellow, maybe it faded)

The ones from previous years are gone.

There were a few green ones with some sort of solar battery around. I don’t know if they are the next step in the evolution or not.

Bin Chickens Of Sydney

Early morning sightings of bin chickens during my morning walk in Sydney this morning.
