Martin Place flowers



Martin Place has become the focal point for grief following Monday's siege. The flowers continue to grow and it is heart wrenching to watch as crying people queue to lay their flowers. Office workers, pensioners, and young families all in line. There is also a tent with condolence books with people queing yesterday to write lengthy messages to the families of Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson, the two people killed. Click here for a story on Tori.

Norfolk Island Pines in Sydney


These trees are native to an island 1600km from Sydney. In 1788 they were planted in the hope of the timber being used for masts. Sadly not suitable. But they were planted all over Sydney anyway. Popular on the beaches. And I took this yesterday as there were two boys at the top, but you cannot see them in this photo,

Sydney Siege Day


Yesterday was a strange and terrible day in Sydney. The siege was nearby and our building was in lockdown. Sirens went non-stop for over an hour and rumours were flying. Things like there was a bomb at the Opera House and the Bridge was closed. The Christmas crowds disappeared and shops started closing. No-one could work with that going on. We all left work early. Then to wake up to the terrible news this morning ... two hostages killed.
