Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge: City Skyline

Architecture is so varied in the landscape — much of it is odd ball. I love the angles, the curves, the reflections and the incongruity between new and old, soft and hard.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  2. The pics that show the buildings towering above, you apparently in the center, are a bit dizzying. The ones taken from a park or the water – calling me to visit! Great shots all around.

    I never looked at city skylines as odd, but you are correct. They do look out of place. Thanks Irene.
