These photos were taken with my iPhone. The first I snapped as I walked past a construction site at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, “The Chris O’Brien Lifehouse”, which is part the Sydney Cancer Centre and soon to be completed.
The other two images, were taken from my car (stationary at traffic lights!) a very busy Sydney intersection on Parramatta Road. One is of a building which has been “tarted up” and I think has become rather beautiful. The odd site was row of ibis birds on the top. You can barely see them…and there are only a couple in this pic. There were lots..but by the time I got my phone out they had disappeared..
Another day I was stuck at those same traffic lights, and was greeted by another surprising display. A lovely man smiling and waving to every one passing by. He is holding up a sign saying “SMILE” and and happy yellow smiley face on a stick. I know it is a little hard to see..not the best photo I have ever taken…but it was a moment I wanted to capture and share. I was on my way to my late father’s house and feeling down…this man made me smile. Of course I waved back and bipped my car horn!
I decided to play around with these images… and if you look carefully you can see the happy man in both buildings.
Since I did start this post yesterday, it will count as Day 11 and Day 12 of Blogtoberfest 2013😉
