Harris Park - these are some of the sights I see when I walk from home - shops & back. there's a lot of cute heritage worker's cottages / houses in HP - some have been renovated & others are run-down, about to be pulled down and probably turned into blocks of flats. unfortunately I can't afford to buy one of these. many are now business offices or restaurants - lots of Indian and Lebanese restaurants here. we also have the international conservatorium of music. Parramatta is a short walk - there's more and more highrises going up there. I like the reflections of the sky & clouds in the buildings though.
