I stopped off briefly at a pub in Woollahra to attend to nature but then continued up Queen Street to Oxford Street and then turned west, heading toward the city. I walked all the way down to Hyde Park and then crossed Elizabeth Street into Bathurst Street, heading down the hill toward Darling Harbour. At the footbridge I crossed over the expressway. Then I turned north and came up under the Pyrmont Bridge, and home.
The photo shows Paddington Town Hall and, if you look down the corridor of Oxford Street into the grey distance, you can just see on the horizon the square-block tower of the University of Technology, Sydney. I thought the contrast between the two buildings - separated as they are by about 100 years of history - was suggestive of the vintage of the city of Sydney. As you can see there were quite a lot of clouds today. I took an umbrella with me this morning because it was raining when I left home, but it soon cleared up and didn't rain for most of the rest of the day.
