Very nice shots Rob! I am just over two months from visiting Sydney, and these are getting me excited

The first one does look like a giant wheel. Still trying to figure it out. Wall or ceiling?

Cool! There's some really nice 19th century buildings in Sydney.

Wall. You can see the stairs down at the bottom of the photo. I'm on the top floor.

Nice shots, Rob. I will be down there with my grandchildren in a bit over a week. We always visit the QVB when we are in the city. And I see you got the Leica "shop" (probably not allowed to call it a shop) with its two items in two acres of floor space.

I missed that! The restored building is lovely. There's too many buildings that should have been heritage listed that are gone.

Here's an exterior shot of the QVB with the new trams (oops, light rail) which are being tested prior to introduction to service. Ironically, all Sydney's trams were removed in the 1960's.
