Walk in the CBD15 January , 2013
Everyone’s taking photos of the buildings, and here I am looking at the grass…typical!
This grows in between the mining buildings and I really like it. Not my first photo of this either, but anyhoo – there you have it, CBD grass.
I was telling them that this is the first job I’ve ever had IN the CBD and I was actually pleasantly surprised at how green it all was, since I was kind of expecting a scary concrete jungle before I got here. Now I go for a stroll fairly often (not as far as we went) and it’s not really all that intimidating at all.
I always see these things but i’ve never given them a closer look. They are indeed fish ponds. So pretty! I have no idea why the people who work in these buildings don’t even have their lunch on the lawns – must be forbidden?
The water feature…
The Coca-Cola add on the side of one of the buildings.
We weren’t actually allowed to take photos inside the library – so this time i made sure that i wasn’t seen doing it (no small feat since security was following us around). Sadly i only managed to get one that wasn’t blurred beyond recognition because of my manouvres to evade detection.
The photos are all in reverse order of when I took them for some reason, and I couldn’t be bothered to try and switch them around now before I post (actually the first one I tried to drag disappeared so I’ll just leave them this way).
Anyhoo, one sneaky photo when they weren’t looking of my two friends, and then the other one was when I told them to smile for a photo, unfortunately I managed to catch Marcia with her eyes closed – but you get the idea.
One thing I didn’t take a photo of which I wish I had was this one spot where three very young boys were sitting on the pavement with one colouring book between them and a handful of crayons. It’s kind of awesome and kind of sad all at the same time, if you know what I mean? There were no adults with them, they were completely alone sitting on a side walk colouring in, in the middle of the CBD. I can’t imagine ever letting Nicola loose on her own in town if I can help it at any age – I’m guessing their parents can’t help it?
I had a great time! Thanks guys…
