Touchy-feely


100 Market Street is part of the renovated Pitt Street Mall being built by Frank Lowy's Westfield Group.


This feature wall is made from concrete.
Go on.
Touch it!

Oh, I like those close-ups. Nice work.

I would not have thought it was concrete. Beautiful work. Great images Julie.

Is it really concrete? How amazing - I would touch it, just to check! It's very attractive I think.

Julie said...

Something is wrong with the Blogger count of comments. There are three here (and in my email), but the counter still is set on zero.

Duh!

Bill said...

Your counter says 1 Comment but there are 4. What's going on?

Is this really a concrete wall, Julie? If it is, it's amazing!

I would not be able to keep my hands off of it if I were there. You have done a splendid job conveying texture to us with these images, Julie.

Julie said...

Yes, yes ... it is concrete. Astounding, yes?

And most people who pass by, run their hands over it! It certainly is an attention getter.

It's amazing. I've done the touchy feely thing on it too. These are the first photos I've seen of it.

I haven't seen this in real life yet but the photos are fab, I want to touch them. Reminds me of 1970s macrame.

The comments have gone mad on my blog too. They are coming through on email but a slow in appear on the blog and older ones on the same post have disappeared this morning.

Absolutely amazing! I thought it was real rope!

diane said...

CONCRETE! Thats amazing. I wonder the same as Bruce.

Julie said...

I suspect the people who dust the outside of this building is the same people who dust the outside of every other building in Sydney - the chap on the stairs, the bloke who wasn't there.

Ms. Fiddlesticks said...

The texture is amazing. I wonder how they did it? Really thought it was rope.

Jayne said...

That is just fabulous, wish we could feel it through the monitor lol.

Lois said...
