"Now, I wonder who Wilfred was?" Finishing her smoke in the nook of a concrete building she interrupted me with a question that was more of a statement. This launched a schizophrenic conversation anchored by our love of photography and our mutual roots in Newtown, a colourful suburb of Sydney.
To prove her interest in photography she pulled out a film canister full of old cigarette butts and jammed one more in.
To prove her love for Newtown she hopped from story to story, insisting I visit at the end of each one.
The whole encounter was cemented by Wilfred, pardon the pun, and his name etched in the concrete of the Civic Tower. She approached the riddle like a detective, her milky blue eyes squinted as she presented options for me to consider.
In the end we agreed it wasn't a labourer who etched his name in the wet concrete in 1994 when the building was erected. It was simply an unimaginative vandal late one night in the dark of the nook. Weeks later a council cleaner tried to erase all evidence of the vandalism but only succeeding in bleaching the concrete... Our investigation came to a bland ending, much like this photo. Wilfred will also come to an end once the council cleaner returns with more intent - and once this photo gets buried in my feed, its blandness unable to attract a click or a like.

Se retorna a la gran ciudad de NSW!
Con respecto a su arquitectura, se puede decir que no hay un estilo que la caracteriza, sino que la ciudad se compone de una gran superposición de arquitectura vieja y nueva, desde sus inicios hace 200 años.
En ese caso estamos viendo la Civic Tower, arquitectura moderna del año 2004, de uso comercial
👉🏻 Mide 132 metros, y tiene 35 pisos.
👉🏻 Con fachada de hormigón, la torre es el primer edificio de Australia que se apoya plenamente en un núcleo central de ascensor sin el uso de columnas perimetrales en todos sus niveles. Construido sobre el centro Masónico de Sydney, las características del diseño estructural innovador ofrecen un marco de espacio utilizando elementos post tensado que atan y puntales tubulares llenos de hormigón de alta resistencia del acero para transferir el perímetro del edificio de la oficina de 25 historias detrás en su base.
To the great city of NSW again!
With regard to its architecture, there is not a style that characterizes it, and that city is composed of a large overlap of old and new architecture, since 200 years ago.
In this case, we're seeing the Civic Tower, modern architecture in the year 2004, for commercial use. 👉🏻 Is 132 meters, and has 35 floors. 👉🏻 With concrete, the Tower facade is the first building in Australia which is fully supported by a central core of lift without the use of perimeter columns at all levels. Built on the Sydney Masonic Centre, innovative structural design features offer a framework of space using tensioning post binding and filled with concrete of high strength steel tubular Struts to transfer the perimeter of the building of the office of 25 stories back in its base.
I saw this view and decided to take a picture and i don't regret it. Look at that skyline, Its edited now but the initial Photograph was nice, now it is beautiful. I learnt recently that you don't need a pro camera to be a photographer and this is proof, it take a lot more than an expensive pro camera to make a good photograph, things like lighting, composition, editing, etc need to be taken into consideration, same as it takes more than a logo, complimentary card and office space to create a great brand, customer experience with your products and services needs to be taken into consideration too. The Rigid-Flex logo over there, is there to create an imprint in your mind that our brand is capable of making a regular image a beautiful experience for everyone to see.
