A morning at Cockatoo Island with Alissa and Lola

August 27, 2011 | Leave your thoughts


Wasn’t the nice day that we had hoped for – foggy and then glary overcast so not the best light…but still it is lovely to roam around the island which was very empty today. I seem to be able to include the harbour in most of my sketches today!

Fire hydrants in Sydney are generally underground (except for the big fire booster pump assemblages) but here on the island there are single hydrants everywhere – so this is for Pete Scully… sadly I don’t think that these are inspiring enough for him to ever include Sydney on his world tour of exciting cities with interesting fire hydrants.
