Around Sydney...

Rushcutters Bay, one of Sydney's many bays

El Alamein Fountain at Fitzroy Gardens, Kings Cross, was built in 1961 to commemorate the Australian Army’s role during the WWII battles at Tobruk in Libya and El Alamein in Egypt. (It's resemblance to a giant dandelion pappus is coincidental... )

Circular Quay food court, Sydney CBD. The balloon this young rider is holding promotes Sydney Transit Systems pre-pay bus service. The advertisment promises fast ride times with the new pre-pay program. Apparently few riders are signing up for the plan because when the bright blue, 'pre-pay' buses pass by, they seem to be doing the same speed as the 'pay-as-you-go' buses.

Garvan Institute of Medical Research, in Darlinghurst, a suburb of Sydney. I walk past this building daily and although admission is granted only to credentialed research staff, they allowed me to photograph this circular stairway. I was instructed NOT to use a flash to take the picture as it might set off the infrared security system. What kind of medical research are they doing here anyway?!?
