This post is part of a photographic series featuring how the city of Sydney has been impacted by the CoViD-19 (novel coronavirus) outbreak. The steps in front of Sydney Town Hall is normally packed full of people as it is a popular meeting spot and rendezvous point. I captured it on a Friday morning and the steps were completely empty.
At the time of writing, Sydney has not yet subject to a population lockdown (unlike other countries and cities) but residents are strongly advised to stay indoors unless absolutely necessary.
This series of posts show just how quiet the streets of Sydney and suburbs have become.
Renowned for its high Victorian interiors and rich decoration, Sydney Town Hall is the largest and most ornate late 19th century civic building in Australia. When completed in 1889, it was the colony’s most daring, technologically innovative and controversial building, and it dominated the Sydney skyline for almost a century.
I took the photos using a Panasonic GX9 and the 7-14mm f4 wide-angle lens.
