Welcome to "U" of the alphabetised month!  If you have not seen or heard of the AtoZ challenge, click the logo on the sidebar to find out more! This blog is not about words, but about pictures telling the story. That said, for this month, there will be a few more than usual typed items and occasionally more than the usual one image per post. 

Urbanism is a boom trait. Australia is still a young country. The majority of its land is considered Uninhabitable, in settler's minds. The First Nation people might beg to differ. That which is habitable, mainly around the coastline, is fast becoming over-populated. Part of the loss of species is due to the invasion of habitat. One of the ways that Urban planning is attempting to deal with this is to build Up instead of across. The cynical might view this as attempts at maximising profits from offering sea views...


  1. Hello,

    The skyscapers are a cool sight. I was happy to move out of the city to a rural area, less traffic and people. Take care, enjoy your day! Happy Weekend!

  2. I have to say that when we were in Sydney in 2018, urban sprawl was evident everywhere, and new housing estates were being built ever closer to potential bush fire zones. Human stupidity know no bounds does it?

  3. Urbanism leads to vertical living!

  4. U gave Us some nice Urban views from downUnder
    Hugs Cecilia

  5. when USA was young they considered most of it inhabitable and look at it now. even the western states are grwoing becuase there is no room left on the coast lines
