City from Towers Street Arncliffe (Skywatch Friday)
This is the view over the inner southern suburbs towards the city, from near my house (I don't have a view, unfortunately). Overseas visitors have commented to me that they are surprised at how green Sydney is. I don;t quite know what their image of Sydney is, but it gets a fair amount of rainfall, and I guess compared to some cities I've visited, there are a lot of trees, and parks. You can see more recent apartment developments, but much of Sydney's population still lives in Single dwellings, with backyards.
Have you ever been surprised by preconceptions visitors hold of your city?
