On my way home this evening I drove over to East Balmain to park my car where I'll be leaving it for the next 24 hours or so. People who attempt to find a parking spot in East Balmain on nye will be dreaming. It's quite an ingenious thing to do really, park your car 24 hours prior to a major event so as to avoid all the chaos. It won't be so ingenious if the car gets broken into, but fingers crossed that doesn't happen!! ;)
I walked all the way from East Balmain to Hyde Park in central Sydney where I took the bus to Bondi Junction then walked the rest of the way home. I took some shots with my mobile phone during the walk, that took my from Darling Street, East Balmain, then across to Beattie Street and Mullens Street, Rozelle, onto Victoria Road and the Anzac Bridge. I climbed down to Pyrmont and cut across the walkover bridge over Darling Harbour & Cockle Bay Wharf, up through the city into Hyde Park. These photos actually display back to front, commencing with the last photo taken displaying first (below)...(it has to do with the way the photos upload etc). I'm pleased with the photos, they turned out well despite the low pixilation.
The photo above is taken from the entry into Pyrmont and looks westward at the sunset over Anzac Bridge.
Below is a photo of the square lake at Hyde Park that leads onto the lit walkway. A famous Australian band had photos taken at this very spot all the way back in 1980.
There's an opening below (currently undergoing repair) where that same band posed for photos c.1980.
