Sydney, Vintage Style

the sydney siege that happened at martin place recently leading up to christmas broke my heart, and many others. i've been living here for 9 years now so sydney is my home. on another note, i am all but amazed and proud of the #illridewithyou initiative that came up from the community during this tragedy. it shows a great example of what our real society is about and should be built upon.

as a tribute, i just wanted to share with you some amazing photos of sydney cbd in the old days. it was a beautiful city then and now, and always will be.
