That sandstone is a wonderfully warm colour. It must be possible to find out where that particular sandstone was quarried - Pinchgut, Goat, Cockatoo? They are all possibilities. That part of Sydney is very much like a canyon, don't you think?

Very much so. I used to work in one of the big highrises in that area and those cross streets are windtunnels.

Juxtaposed old and new. Excellent composition.

Hey, it's suddenly so empty and quiet looking. Don't you miss the throngs? ;)
