Inner city waterfall

This inner city waterfall was fairly roaring away as I walked past yesterday. I've often noted its old brick surrounds and wondered if it is the site of John Oxley's fresh water.

Stop and take photos

One of the great things about a photo project it actually forces you to stop and take photos. This afternoon while walking home I came across a couple of musicians playing some tunes while seated near the South Bank board walk.
