Still got Oz photos to run.

Toe of black Doc Marten boot encroaches on iron grating with diagonal grille

(Yes, that’s the only non-leather Doc Marten in Sydney.)

Gratting with regular pattern of raised squares and central rectangular hole features the letters MWS&DB

Any other cities apart from Sydney that embed vitreous green costume jewelry in their sidewalks? (The rim reads “Princess Margaret’s Visit to Bondi Beach, 1975.”)

Metal rim embedded in sidewalk encloses four quadrants of concrete, a smaller rim, and a cloudy, emerald-green glass disc

Talk about orange. You shouldn’t put blue on orange or vice-versa because the wavelengths resolve at different points on the retina, making the colours look like they’re different distances away.
