Australia Day: Martin Place

0801 Australia Day: Martin Place
Originally uploaded by rooruu.
Although it wasn't our plan, we ended up spending a while in the afternoon of Australia Day sitting in the shade watching the Australian Open tennis (women's singles final) on the big screen at Martin Place. And chatting. And it was very pleasant. (Also, you couldn't hear the players grunting (the sound wasn't good enough) and that was also very pleasant - the grunting irritates the tripes out of me, it seems to be unnecessary and whiffing of gamesmanship, somehow...)

There were teenage boys skateboarding down the steps, showing admirable perseverance, and while your heart leapt to your mouth at some moments, they neither (apparently) damaged themselves, or actually ran into anyone else.
