Gary hates the trouser/sneaker combination but feels the gym bag all but excuses the fashion faux pas.

The bag is empty, but that's beaidethe point. He missed an appointment last week while he waited for the walk signal - no matter what he was never going to let it happen again!

They'd seen the movies, they knew how thing's happened. One little peck is all it takes.

When your daughter is Pigeon Girl, parents can be as competitive as they like.

He slides carton after carton into the shelves and with each one, he thinks of his father. As if each carton is a step closer to him.

Zac didn’t grow up in the city, he came here as a lonely, hurt and fearful teenager. His mother, like his father, but a blur in a mind running too fast for comprehension.

For years he ran. Day and night, his mind, faster than his feet. Zac knew he had no location in mind but could do little to rectify his wayward path.

Zac’s met Julie, she was running too. Jogging partners became more and together they became parents. Their feet suddenly became heavier, their strides less erratic and increasingly lethargic. Zac actually stopped running for a while. He sat and stared, desperately trying to find joy in his son but shocking could not. Financial stress added weight to his fear, drowning all sense of hope.

He had to do something and like his dairy farmer father, he worked hard.

Zac hasn’t always wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps - his aggressive, always too busy, distant father – but now he’s a father, he doesn’t know another way.

Tony's wife hates it and he struggles to keep track of the clippings. Tony tried the 'long nail thing's but kept scratching himself.

Then it came to him. Now he doesn't understand why more people don't cut their nails in public!

Karl knew as long as he has her, everything else would be ok. A companion as much as a security blanket, the two are inseperable.

It was love a first site. A standout in a crowd of imitations and wannabe stunners, she shine brightly amongst them.

Her name matches her appearance, exotic and slightly exaggerated. Karl loves his new sunglasses, her calls them Esmerelda.

His glance becomes a stare as she walks past. His question intensifies - why not me?

He was lonely and longing to share his life. Only 19 but ready for long term commitment.

Carlos lost his parents at a young age, images of happy families get him every time.

He knew it would be tiring but he also didn't think he'd ever be elected.

His security team will wake him soon despite his PR team's protest. He's like a toddler, they'll say - he wakes grumpy and sends ridiculous tweets...please, let him (and us) rest.

Justin has been burnt for 'going above beyond' in the past. Mentally and physically burnt out, he knows his role.

He could be doing more ... But someone has to make sure the wall doesn't fall.

Ralph was first introduced to the ‘sport’ as a young boy. From the local jetty, he remembers days spent shoulder to shoulder with his father. They never caught much but reaped the benefits of time together.

A runway accident took his father too early, Ralph upholds the family name and values.

He wasn’t gifted with looks like his old man but combines modelling and fishing as a homage to Dennis; his father, fisherman and model.

Our eyes locked. Old school rules applied, neither wanted to draw their weapon. Instead, trigger fingers itched as sweat beads formed on our brows.

We drew our phones, got the shot and moved on. The question remains: who is Fictional Sydney?

She been denying it for months but you know your relationship has sunk to new lows when you're pretending to be drunk just to avoid conversations with your man.

Thanks for the 📷 @mazzafromdablock

What a day! A definite top five for Colin behind his wedding day, open day at the tram museum and the day-cum-week he discovered YouTube.

The sale at David Jones was just the start. 50% off shirts and 30% off hats, Colin's highlight was 45 minutes pretending to be a mannequin.

Colin loved YouTube but still doesn't quite grasp the concept. He fully expected to see his video on their despite not filming, let alone uploading his stunt.

It wasn't going to win awards but it was a 'nice' shot. In her mind, a 52 perhaps?

He continued to flick the water with his hand as she dreamt of a impacting caption. He was winning points with every splash that reached the statues, she was amassing hashtags by the second.

She got more than 52 likes on this shot thanks to the #MySonFellIntoTheFountain hashtag.

Not that anything else had, Troy's salary hadn't kept up with Sydney's rising property prices. Although flickering over the years he didn't let a mere sense of impossibility stop the great Australian dream in his life.

Moving away from his mother, the journey started in 2002, renting a small unit while saving for a deposit. His savings made his first property purchase possible in 2007. Every time he locked the door (and he needed to in the area he could afford), he stood a little taller - a proud young man wearing a metaphorical 'property owner' badge.
For 10 years he'd been living in a one bedroom unit dreaming of a white picket fence and a sprawling yard. The latter was never going happen (Troy's not a millionaire) and he'd settled for a standard brick fence but he'd achieved his goal - a house (albeit a tiny townhouse) in Sydney!

A twisted sense of manhood, Troy's first order of business was to ask strata to cancel the lawn mowing service. He remembers his mother's words as a young teen and 'man' of the house - "Mowng is a man's job". He wasn't going to let another cut his grass.

The culmination of a journey spured by a goal and littered with the strain of saving money and cutting corners, Troy mowed his lawn, his t-shirt like peacock feathers.

Troy invited his mother around to see the new place. Piling praise on top of praise, it shouldn't have mattered but all Troy remembers was his mother's words... "Real men don't use electric mowers". #realpeopleinfictionalstories #sydney #scenesofsydney #mowing #men #manhood #positivity #negativewords #man #property #sydneyrealestate #realestate #picoftheday #insta_series #instagood

It never used to be an issue but Graham hates small talk. In fact, he's developed a distaste for all face to face interaction.

Whether a result of simple nerves or the birth of 'Ginvisible', his online gaming personality, he's pulling out all stops to avoid conversations today.

Graham (aka Ginvisible) just leveled up his incognito gameplay.

He pulled his favourite black t-shirt over his head and stared at himself in the mirror. Today will the day that I ask.

Now on the platform he found himself substituting small talk in their presence. He was desperate for the answer one way or another but was too nervous to ask. What if they brushed me off , I'd be lost.

Then Brett felt the rumbles of the train approaching the platform and thought, it's now or never. He leant in a little closer and asked... How does your beard grow so thick?

The history and origins of the phrase isn’t entirely clear but Wesley has been spreading his entire life. Blessed and cursed with the ability to ‘never forget’, Wesley’s on the campaign trail – his destination, a community that welcomes discussions on mental health.

He can’t do it alone, obviously, he needs your help. October is Mental Health Month, take a moment visit his website bit.do/elephantintheroom and start talking.

1 in 5 Australians will experience a mental illness this year, it’s time we talked about mental health, the elephant in the room.

They had the wharf to themselves, the sun was fading, the mood was perfect... It was now or never.

They'd been together for about a year and everything was going great - he still couldn't crush his nerves. Starting with I, he stuttered before reaching love, and mumbled through you.

Silence.

Devestated, he turned to his phone as a distraction. As if by consolation she offered the second best three word sentence one could hope to hear... Instagram that sh*t!

It had been fought for months - ever since the crazy idea was floated. It had always been a big part of his personality. Yong was torn about letting it be dictated by someone else but reluctantly went along with it.

The uniform policy may take our choices away but they'll never take casual Friday!

Most think it started when his son was born but those close to him know it started well before that.

At the age of six, Geoff's mother said he wasn't allowed to grow his hair long. At the age of 11 he broke his leg in three places and doctors said he'd never ride again. And when his marriage fell apart, the courts said he wasn't able to look after his kids.

Geoff takes offence to being told he can't do something. His mother is no longer with us, his pony tail is a tribute. And he takes great pleasure in riding with his son, and more so, doubling him when jnr gets tired.
