Walking the dog in Woden. Images of Canberra

walking the dog

Caught this one in Woden, out the back of the new Sirius Building.

Always wanted to catch an inverted umbrella in the area, fairly iconic of Windy Woden.

I love that the guy is just ‘going with it’, and he’ll probably pop it out and use it again.

Rocking in the free world.

He should have just put a box on his head like the guy behind him.

That Woden wind tunnel is the most depressing, concrete-encased cold lonely streetscape ever. And that bit out the back of the Sirius stinks of sewage!

But didn’t you read the article?
“LDA general manager urban renewal Ian Wood-Bradley said solar and window experts had worked on avoiding these issues at Woden 9 with designs to break the down draft and turbulence and block cold westerly winds.”

So they are going to stop all that nasty wind! Hahahahaha! What a load of bollocks!
