The no longer existing Sydney Monorail, photographed two years prior to its demise. Described by the ever droll and sadly no longer with us Australian writer Clive James as running ".......from the middle of downtown Sydney, to the middle of downtown Sydney, after circumnavigating the middle of downtown Sydney."
Giant, fluttering canvas faces in Sydney watching everything and everyone. No idea why they were there, maybe art, probably advertising, but my first thought was they seemed not so benign, a little Orwellian, a bit Big Brotherish.
These two women were also photographers, walking up and down the area around Darling Harbour, like me, on the look-out for a 'Kodak Moment'. When they stopped for a spot of streetnapping they must have had me in mind. The contrasting poses alone would have made a worthwhile shot, but placing herself directly underneath the toucan was definitely not going to go to waste. This scene was actually very colourful but the foreground fountains were a major distraction. Converting to monochrome helped the scene gel better.
