As the sun rises

the city starts to wake

some buildings exposing more sky

than can be see between the buildings rising high in the sky.

Sydney Harbour bounds the city

And finally at night fall the city becomes alive

The lights flickering until finally it sleeps

only to wake again as commuters flock to work.

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.

  6. Many of your photos capture the claustrophobic feeling of being hemmed in by tall steel buildings, of needing to see that one patch of sky. Your pics are excellent – you really conveyed a day in the city. Well done, Irene.
