Bushfires ravage the periphery of Sydney and around the state. The weather has been hot, windy and dry. Bad. It’s only October. And it’s getting worse. There’s a cooler southerly change expected that only means the wind will change direction. There are already more than 90 fires burning and 100 homes lost in less than 24 hours. It’s hell on earth for the residents and firefighters.
The G.O. and I are in no danger. But, this is what the we saw from the inner city and south western Sydney late this afternoon. The city may not be burned, but its skies are bruised.
Street Art, Darley Lane, Newtown (Sydney), NSW, Australia
It was a case of street art meeting reality in Sydney, NSW Australia this morning. The rainy & windy weather immediately brought to mind this street art in Darley Lane (off King St), Newtown.
“And now the storm-blast came, and he
Was tyrannous and strong:
He struck with his o’ertaking wings,
And chased us south along…”
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
