Chinese New Year next week. Year of the Rabbit
Come along to the Nan Tien Temple for their annual Chinese New Year Cultural Festival.
That’s a Wollongong event. For Sydney see this list.
The painting celebrates the Year of the Goat/Sheep – my year. It is a real treasure, given to me by a Chinese-born student some years back.
Things you can buy at Mao and More in Cleveland Street.
I interrupt the Canberra Visit series to return to one of my favourite sites for people-watching and photography, Belmore Park. Being on the edge of Chinatown it is an important focus for Chinese New Year celebrations here in Sydney.
I’ll take the opportunity to note some innovations here. The template is now settled, and (using PhotoFiltre and Live Writer in tandem) the photo framing. My watermark has changed. Most important, there is now a Twitter widget specially for the two photo blogs. This will keep you up to date on what is happening on them.
Now back to the start of Glebe Point Road where I found some juxtapositions that appealed to me.
Most of the photos here show the parts of Sydney I walk about in every day. Belmore Park runs from Eddy Avenue (Central Station) to Hay Street and Pitt Street (Haymarket and Chinatown). It is a constant passing parade of the diversity of Sydney’s population.
