Snapshot: Collections I

Walking through the city as much as I do, I tend to end up with photographs of things that are cool and interesting, but don’t actually lend themselves to whatever blog entry I happen to be working on at the time.

Never one to waste a good photo, I thought I’d organize these into collections and give you a glimpse of some of the pretty things just hanging around Sydney. This first collection showcases some of the carved and chiseled animals around town.

I'm not sure what these guys are, but I like them! They are on the Chard Stairs in Darlinghurst.
