These are some of the remarkable buildings on Phillip and Bent Sts, Sydney viewed through the glass ceiling of the ABN Amro building (Aurora Plaza). Please see version 2 as well.

(Nov 2007 version - same view, same photographer, different camera and time of day)

Dedicated to PLC - my all-time favourite photographer.

Gerry, in shooting this image, I got strange looks from passers-by and even tripped on my own backpack cause I was intently looking up.
I'm really pleased with the response from all you guys. Thanks again.
