Photographer's Note

I was in the old Sydney suburb of Glebe yesterday, trying out the Big Stopper filter. As I sat there waiting for the clouds to come overhead, it made me think of two of our TE'ers Stephen (SNunney) and and Noel (Noel_Byrne) who like me, hang out in cemeteries and churchyards just a little too much. So this is just to let you know that someone over the other side of the world is thinking of you :)

This is St John's Anglican Church located on Glebe Point Road. It was designed by local resident and famous Australian architect Edmund Blacket. Blacket is known as "the Wren of Sydney"and is responsible for such beautiful Victorian Gothic buildings as Sydney University, St Saviour's Goulburn, St Andrew's Cathedral Sydney and many hundreds more smaller designs. St Johns was opened in 1857 and houses a magnificent organ.

The suburb of Glebe was so-named because colonial land grants of 400 acres were called "glebes".

If you would like to see some other of Blacket's works you'll find them here:
