Sydney in perspective

So, this morning I’ve decided to not visit the Blue Mountains and save it for another time. The weather won’t get any better and my budget is getting smaller and smaller now I’m near the end of my trip.
It’s ok, because I’m sure I’m coming back. Actually I don’t even want to leave! Sorry mommy, boyfriend, partner in crime.. I just love it here (‘:
Anyway I will return so no sad faces, yeah (:

Because today the weather is pretty good I’m going to Bondi to take my last chance on a bit of tan (‘:

Yesterday I made it to the Art Gallery with my friend through Hyde park, where I couldn’t capture mindfulness and ‘no worries’ any better than with this picture of a guy in suit napping in the sun during his break.

Just a few steps away you can find the Anzac memorial which broke with traditional styles with it’s contemporary Art Deco design.

At the museum there were a couple of things that left an impression. First of all this guy.
I didn’t see him when I walked into the room and it just scared the wits out of me! I can still see the guard laughing. I wonder how many people he has scared already!

But now seriously. When I walked through the city I saw a lot of homeless people. Not knowing their story and unable to judge if they could do more than just beg for money I do think this poster has a point. Homeless people are everywhere in the world and treated like trash. We seem to forget they are still human with the same basic needs as we have.

It’s another story if the person in question will not accept the help that’s been given of course. Still we shouldn’t treat them like a homeless, but like a person. They differ, just like we as people do. We judge them by the person they are not the state their in.

The Galaxy by Sidney Nolan. This painting sort of pulled me into the room. You’re familiar with that? Something just catches your eye and you just have to look at it closer?
I felt as if it was some kind of time travel through space passing hurt souls. It gave me goose bumps. Not sure if it is visible, but there are faces on the figures.
As it turned out the painting gave me the feeling it has to portray. It is supposed to be a time warp in which memories of war and it’s soldiers reverberate from the past into the present.

And this one? This one just exactly shows how I feel. Bf! Still wanna argue with me and start a discussion, you first look at this one X!

Glad to have visited the museum. It’s been a while since the last time I’ve been to one.
I should to it more often, I love it!

After the museum we saw Sidney in another way, namely on top from the Sydney Tower Eye! And our last stop for the afternoon was the Queen Victoria Building. Where shopping for me would be hard, since I’m too broke for that fancy stuff (‘:

Fallen in love with the stairs and glasswork of this building, whoa

Last but not least after our BBQ at the hostel we met up with one of Lang Dee’s friends who lives here and ate some ice cream in Darling Harbour. I can still cry thinking about all those flavours and my ass :'(

Though I must say all these sporty people in the parks and just everywhere as if they wear their sports outfits 24/7 really motivated me to move! One cup of ice cream on 6 hours of walking through Sydney is fine ^^
