I regard myself as a Flâneur
Google tells us that a Flâneur is a French noun referring to a person, literally meaning ‘stroller’, ‘lounger’, ‘saunterer’, or ‘loafer’, but with some nuanced additional meanings. Flânerie is the act of strolling, with all of its accompanying associations. A near-synonym of the noun is boulevardier.
Unable to travel out of our bubble at present has lead me to be become a flâneur in a city that I have lived and worked for the past 44 years.
Of course I should include some postcard shots of Sydney, some recognisable, others not.
Places in the past I would have classed as not photogenic have all of sudden become of interest. It shows me what I have been blind to in the past. The moral of this small article is don’t underestimate your own doorstep.
