Marlborough Street

"Marlborough House" is a building I've walked past possibly hundreds of times, and yet have had no idea what was located inside. A bit of googling reveals this massive building is home to fashion graphic designers, fashion designers, furniture designers etc. I only really discovered it today when I went walking along Marlborough Street as...

Miles Street

For the last four years, from time to time, I've been indulging in a photographic project I've called Surry Streets. The project came out of a personal discovery desire to get to know the area in which I live a little better. There's a tendency just to walk along the main streets and the same... Continue Reading →

Cleveland Lane

Even though I've walked past it several hundred times (if not more), I didn't know there WAS a Cleveland Lane, Surry Hills until earlier today. Anxious to try out my new camera, and engaging in my ongoing photographic project - taking random photographs of various streets and laneways in Surry Hills - I set out... Continue Reading →

Snap Happy on Crown

I got a little "snap happy" on the way home last night, although I'm not exactly sure why. Perhaps it was the glass or two of wine I had? Perhaps it was because the semi-full moon made everything seem so bright? Perhaps it was because I pretty much had the street to myself and felt... Continue Reading →

Surry Laneways

The sign leading to Cartmore Lane is very inviting. In the midst of the corporate green of the City of Sydney street signs, these days, it's a refreshing reminder of the past. And it's in stark contrast to the brown and orange painted wall. I don't know how many times I've walked past Cartmore Lane.... Continue Reading →

Lansdowne Street

I felt like a bit of photographic exploration today, though I didn't feel like wandering too far from home. So I wandered over to Lansdowne Street, just off Crown Street, Surry Hills. It's only a small street, and not all that remarkable really. It has a few nice houses. A couple of shops. A power... Continue Reading →

Little Young Street

This afternoon, I ran into Neil aka Ninglun near the bus stop on Cleveland Street. He's a blogger who lives not far from me who also likes to take photographs of Surry Hills. "I'm taking a series on 'waiting'", he told me this afternoon, explaining why he was taking a photograph of the bus stop... Continue Reading →

Belvoir Street

There's more to Belvoir Street than the famous theatre. The street also has a church, a housing estate, some 80-style apartments, some workers cottages, and some traditional eastern suburbs terraces. It's a bit of a Surry Hills microcosm, in some ways. Sometimes it's narrow. Sometimes it's wide. At this time of the year, the trees... Continue Reading →

Parkham Street

Parkham Street, Surry Hills is a topical little street if ever there was one. I received a tip-off yesterday the City of Sydney were being asked/told by the State Government to remove all of the trees in the street to allow it to be used as a thoroughfare for World Youth Day. When I turned... Continue Reading →

Wilton Street

On the surface there's nothing particularly spectacular about the Wilton Street, Surry Hills. It's a pretty ordinary little street linking Belvoir Street and Cleveland Street. But when you look a little more deeply you see three distinct styles of architecture (I stand to be corrected as I'm not a architect). And you see three distinctive... Continue Reading →

Ridge Street

James, next time you’re on one of your Surry Hills photo-taking jaunts, could you please have a look at what is at 15 Ridge St, Surry Hills? My great Aunt and her children lived there in 1936. I would really appreciate it if you have a chance! Thanks! So here you go, Cathy... this is... Continue Reading →
