Moment in Sydney...at the station

Posted by JSYL on Monday, May 18, 2009 in ,
I usually avoid trains in Sydney like Swine flu. Once you become accustomed to driving everywhere, it's hard to go back to those pre-teen days. Especially because everything isn't so conveniently about 5 minutes walk from a tube station like in London, here. But on this particular day, I wanted to avoid the peak hour traffic more and so walked to Circular Quay station, just across the road from where I work.

I saw someone on the platform I wanted desperately to avoid (Oh don't look at me like that, you know you've all done it too at some point!) so I quickly walked the other way and pretended to be looking away, towards the street outside. When I thought the coast was clear, I turned around to face the opposite platform:

And there stood Sydney's magnificent coathanger, better known as the Harbour Bridge, squeezed in between the mundane slices of the 9 to 5, smiling at me like an old friend who lives next door but whom I never get to see. Ain't she a beaut?

(Excuse the crappy photography, apparently 'zoom x 16' didn't turn out as clearly as I thought it would.)
