A cloudy afternoon passes in Townsville as night slowly begins to fall. People walk around. Cars drive around and lights go on and off. Soft light, filtered by the clouds, casts a gentle, shadowless illumination. Buildings, old and new, stolidly be what they are, collecting dust and soot. A long zoom makes Townsville look much busier than it is. This time of redevelopment, though- it guarantees gridlock on a tiny scale for an hour or so as workers scramble to get out onto Sturt street.
