Steampunk Sydney

I was very conscious of showing Claire some of the terrific buildings around Sydney - here she is in the entrance to the State Theatre - it just glows - it's so beautiful and rococco.
The Queen Victoria Building has some amazing elements too - here is the tiled floor as seen through the open domes three stories up. We watched this clock strike the hour - there are many historical scenes from English history that move through.
Looking up there is this beautiful glass dome.
And isn't this staircase the very essence of steampunk?
