A photo of The Sirius Building taken a few weeks ago.
Somewhat-similar to this photo.
I like that this image shows this part of The Sirius Building in a bright light. It highlights its age and sturdy design quite well, I think.
I also like that it brings out the geometry quite well. The Sirius Building was designed partly in a way to comply with zoning restrictions in The Rocks, which lends it an interesting shape.
Mostly I’m happy that a building with historical significance to Sydney is still standing, though it’s a shame that the tenants were kicked out and moved elsewhere. Also a shame that there are people who were fine with this happening due to some belief that as they weren’t paying as much rent as other people in the area, they shouldn’t have had the views the building provided, as supposedly social housing shouldn’t be allowed in some places.
This is my submission into Leanne Cole‘s “Monochrome Madness” for this week.
I suggest checking out Leanne’s photography, as well as checking out what other people submit.
A lot of what people are submitting will likely end up here.
I hope you enjoy.
