Docklands images

Hello team,

I clicked these two beautiful pictures from my balcony from my iPhone last week just after the rains.

Hope this helps and is good enough to publish.

Uneven pavements

Since being in lockdown and only allowed out once a day for one hour to exercise, one thing has made an impression on me - the dangerous state of the uneven pavements in Docklands.

I learned the hard way on September 8 when I went out for my daily walk and missed a three centimetre drop on Collins St which sent me flying forward.  

I put out my arm to stop myself from falling flat on my face and felt such terrible pain. As I lay on the pavement two men passed by (separately) and neither asked if I was okay. This heartlessness hurt almost as much as the fall. I managed to walk as far as the ANZ where I could sit down at the tram stop and phone my husband. He called for an ambulance and accompanied me to St Vincent’s Hospital.  

There they gave me painkillers, put my arm in a sling and asked me to wait in the waiting room. I went in to get some X-rays done and luckily nothing was broken but two weeks later and I am still in a lot of pain.

I have since spoken to friends and neighbours and it would seem as though I am not the only one complaining about the state of the pavements. I phoned the Town Hall to report my accident and I would ask anyone who has had a similar incident to do the same.

I would hate anyone else to go through the pain I am experiencing at the moment.
