Fining Up

York Street, Sydney, looking towards the Town Hall

A city street narrows towards thick green foliage, and a clock tower made of sandstone rising in ornate levels from behind it.  Beyond the tower are tall buildings, and grey clouds divided by ragged patches of blue. The footpath in the foreground is dark-paved, slick and shiny from the rain, with a bus stop in the middle, and runs past a long frontage of big store windows brightly reflecting buildings across the street. Those buildings are a mix of styles from the 19th and 20th centuries.
