Light poles of Sydney : Alissa Duke

This weeks theme for Urban Sketchers flickr group is lightpoles and lamp posts . On my 20 minute walk to work each day I walk by a huge variety of these. I did not realise it until I went to sketch one this morning. The first page is only a small sample of what I passed. So this mornings walk to a bit longer than 20 mins as I stopped so often along the way to draw.

I really wanted to draw the old lamp posts on Pyrmont Bridge with their massive sandstone bases and iron (?) lights

and then later in the day I went past these lovely lamp posts at RPA Hospital. They are a lot lower and you can see more detail
