Newcastle CBD

Each week “The Grid” captures moments in a selected area of Newcastle & the Hunter region that they might not otherwise see or notice.

I go to this corner of the Newcastle CBD every week to meet friends and have good coffee.  I park in the same spot every Friday morning and sit at the same table at the same coffee shop.  This grid walk for me was an eye opener as I noticed things that I had walked past and hadn’t noticed before.

It is so great to see the beauty you see in an everyday (well once a week) experience. Can’t help thinking about the number of times I go for my coffee ritual glued to the screen of my Blackberry, makes me wonder what I’ve been missing. I can’t wait to come to Newcastle, put the Blackberry away and enjoy some of the colourful places you’ve captured. Thank you for the reminder of the simple beauty of life.

I love that particular area - which has some of the most beautiful buildings in the city. I love the sign that has been revealed by the demolition of the old Tattersalls…
