'The button I press to cross New South Head Rd in Edgecliff, Sydney' posted by Doug Kirkpatrick


Those ticking street posts

an experience of city and town

I've lived overseas for years and whenever I come home and stand at an intersection I know I'm home when I hear that unmistakable tick...tick...tick at the traffic lights followed a moment later by that slingshot effect letting us know it's okay to walk.
 
I've been to many countries and our traffic lights certainly offer a unique acoustic experience.
