An Icon

Hopefully, somewhere amongst the yett-to-be explored trappings of being removed from my former residence in absentia is my mother's invitation to the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge which makes it an evem more emotive symbol to my home town. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/51594574428_c3f52...

Re: Giacometti Walking Man Morning Rush, Darling Haarbour

Thanks Maris,

I find that an important key, whether engaged on a commissioned assignment or on purely recreational pursuits, is to remain open to gifts when the fall in your lap. Being possessed of a wry sense of humour doesn't go astray either.

Re: Observatory Tower Indoor Wet-Edge Pool

Thanks Maris, careful exposure always. I'm not sure how it is these days but given that it is building of private apartments owned by some heavy hitters (including at lrast one former PM) it might still comparatively undefiled.
