    Inside the Monster

    These are photos I took a while ago (a year) inside the Sydney Town Hall ... unfortunately before I had my wonderful SLR camera. There's a sneaky trap door to the left of the console that's not particularly easy to get in and out of let me tell you, especially if you're a big fat bastard like me.

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    These are quite cool photos. Could you get there once again with your SLR? Who's the guy in white shirt?

    Mat Did you not read the text that accompanies the photos?

    Also - the photo on the top row, right hand side is looking through the bits and pieces under the keyboard into the auditorium, you can make out seats if you look closely

    I hope Robert will give me another tour ... can't see why he wouldn't, he's so passionate about it. So, you can see that's me in the photo!
