My contribution for this week’s challenge…
To me a leaf looks green and leafy…until
I stumbled across one which I had
converted to a negative.
With the original (photo) and sunlight behind it
we can see a whole system of veins
which transport water, food, energy
through the leaf and on to the rest of the plant.
Sydney’s ‘coat hanger’ does not all that impressive
from this perspective.
In fact not as big as the boat?
However as we commenced our walk across the bridge
it took on a whole new dimension.
Six or eight lanes of motor vehicles and
one or two train lines were woven
into the structure of the bridge.
All this held together by many rivets and tons of steels.
About 12 – 15 years ago our beloved Spencer Street Station
was re-modeled and given a makeover
prior to the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
All I saw was a ‘wavy roof’ which looked nothing like
the old Spencer street Station…AND
it was renamed Southern Cross Station.
How dare they!
to look up, and notice…
the many tons of steel which hold up the ‘wavy roof’.
Now I have grown accustomed to her face.
