City of Perth, WA

3 02 2012

I have a new job in the city centre. It’s the first time I’ve worked in the city and the first time I’ve ever had an office without a window. It’s strangely disorienting and I realise, (now I’m in the confines of a Dilbert style air-conditioned tower block) that my soul is intimately connected to the natural elements. I feel like I need to see the sky to know what my world is doing

I decided to take a walk for my half hour lunch break as I needed to clear my head from the morning’s work. It was an overcast day; very hot, sticky and humid. I rarely venture into the city so I felt almost like a tourist. I wandered around with no real agenda, glancing at my watch to make sure I wasn’t too long. It was nice to relax, just notice what was around while others in suits scuttled past with their heads down, tired of city life. It was a nice break in the day and reminded me that there is a lot to see if you just look. Enjoy these shots from downtown Perth.

I suspect you’ll be spending every one of those thirty minutes outside. I can’t imagine working with no window, I can see the distant hills from the window right beside my desk at work and it keeps me sane – well sort of!

Tough to work with no window to the outside world. But more great street art when you can get a breather….
