Just some Hipsta shots of downtown Madrid, as we toured it aboard one of those ubiquitous red tourist buses.
Oh, I almost forgot. If you’re visiting Parc Guell, check out Gaudi’s house
Rhinoceros and Lobsters in the Gothic Quarter
Visiting with the architect of the non-euclidean And a building such as this. Monet’s water lilies, a carnival expressed in the masked balconies, the confetti effect, the roof like a […]
Paris is also a city of dark labyrinths Down the circular stairwell you wind, past the marks and signs left by the surveyor’s of this realm, and deep into limestone […]
Truth be told, we’d meant to visit the Montmartre cemetery on our first day, but walked right over the top of it without realising. So this morning we decided we’d visit with some of the more permanent residents of Paris. In fact the day turned out to be our ‘day of the dead’.
Found, above a doorway in St Germain.
Dinner at La Maison Rose.
To the south the northern face of Les Invalides seen from the rue de l’universite. And looking the other way (north) towards the Pont Alexander III.
So as Les Invalides is just across the road from The Musee Rodin we thought we’d pay our respects to le petit corporal.
A visit to the Hotel Biron on a hot summer day.
Somehow the possibility of rounding the corner and coming face to face with the Phantom of the Palais Garnier seemed to demand that I bring my trusty Hipstamatic and take some snaps of this second empire opera house.
A day of extreme picnicking at Speers Point.
The old fort late at night, funny to think that I got married here a couple of weeks ago. 🙂
Patiently guarding the harbour entrance against enemies long past, the old fort slumbers on…
Walking down through Circular Quay to the Rocks with my girl, planning on dinner at Lowenbrau. Rockside Sydney the big coat hanger always dominates the skyline it’s nowhere near as […]
…with an eye dotting of the lead dragon head float, then a twilight procession from Town Hall to Darling Harbour.
Après moi, le déluge (Madame Pompadour)… After a swim, hot chips (Australian)
Inside the Head of Edward Tulip at the Wonderdome, Foreshore…
Appearing like a 1970s Sci-Fi film revenant upon the harbour foreshore, a geodesic dome for goodness sake…Jenny Agutter where are you now when we truly need you? 🙂
View from Fort Scratchley to the baths at low tide.
The Drop tower. That’s a 120m tall tower with a great view at the top and a stomach clenching 5 seconds of free fall to get back down again. Did […]
Gold coast scrapers shoot up out of the sand dunes in a knife edge conurbation that starts at the beaches edge and then within one block their dominance just as […]
Like a Jeffrey Smart painting, there is always a slight air of menace about the precise humorless geometry of Honeysuckle… And what is that at the second window?
Looking into the vanishing point.
How many people look to the right or left of them when passing between the gates? If you do (and even more so if you stand still and regard the […]
Quite my favourite restaurant…
Day of the Iguana. One more picture from last weekends adventures at the Australian Reptile Park.
At one time I was the Design Manager for the Hunter Rail Car project. I parachuted in late in the day to sort out the second toughest part of any […]
A couple of black and white snaps of the Kiri Tikanawa concert at Wyndham estates.
And with a style reminiscent of a mutant cross between the James Bond films of yore and Suckerpunch, Aeroflot has nailed their corporate uniform. Red, but not quite, red… 🙂
A quiet Thursday night looking across the harbour.
