Writing inspirations – the excitement of urban renewal

Today’s writing inspiration – for NaNoWriMo entrants and for writers of all persuasions – is a photo I took of city renewal in Darling Harbour, Sydney.

Cities are dynamic places; buildings rise, buildings fall. Here, buildings are rising on what was dockland along the eastern shore of Darling Harbour, near central Sydney. It is a massive development, a sign of the restlessness of humanity, of enterprise, and of city renewal.

  1. When I was in grade school I thought buildings were permanent, that they lasted forever, especially the big ones. As time marches on, I’ve come to realize that most buildings are as transient as the people who built them. I take heart and enthusiasm from the freshness that comes with the buildings that replace the outdated buildings. There is a lot of rebuilding happening in San Francisco and Silicon Valley these days too.🙂
