Sydney Visit (1)

I flew to Sydney on February 1 - to visit my brother and to see "The First Emperor - China's Entombed Warriors" at the Art Gallery of NSW.  I spent the morning with Peter and played tourist.  Here is some street art -

and an interesting design on a grate
2011 The Year of the Rabbit - great design on these banners - 
There used to be one chocolate shop - Lindt - in Martin Place.  Now there are a few.  This one was on the way to the Opera House
As we walked I saw lots of plaques, such as this one, celebrating literary visitors -
How do they know where the shoreline used to be?
Two icons -
I grew up when kiosks and milkbars were the go, now it's cafes.  But here's a kiosk from a while ago (with that icon sneaking itself back into shot...)
