Sydney Skyline


You might just be able to make out Sydney Centrepoint Tower (to the right, behind those tree branches), one of the most recognisable landmarks of the city. The tower was built to withstand high speed winds up to 172 km/hr, and stands 304 m tall. Of course, from this angle, it doesn't look that impressive, but the view from the top is quite breathtaking, expanding seemingly forever in all directions! There's a revolving restaurant at the top, so you get to see the whole 360 degree view over dinner. One of these days, I will snap a shot of the tower from another angle (closer this time).

PS: This one's for you Eric!

Hi there...

Just wanted to tell you how your blog brightened up a little girl's Sunday yesterday. I was at a brunch where we somehow began talking about bird sounds (not a drop of alcohol passed my lips, I swear). Well, I remembered that you had posted the kookaburra, so we logged on, got to your blog, then went to the site with the sound of the kookaburra for the little girl to hear. She couldn't believe it! All the parents had their ears covered of course, but thanks just the same!

It's called the "Batcam"... you're welcome to borrow it any time... any time when I am not using it in my crime fighting activities. Anyway I need to interview you about your trip overseas still.
Regarding bird sounds, #1 on this website drives me mad in the morning every Spring-Summer in Sydney: http://www.birdsinbackyards.net/feature/top-40-bird-songs.cfm

I was in Sydney in Feb this year getting married in the Chinese Gardens. We had the buffet there one evening. It was quite amazing seeing Sydney from the heavens. I have some shots of the tower,if you want to put one on your page
