More shots from a trip to Brisbane. A pond in the botanical gardens, definitely a serene, cool place to be. The water dragons think so too.
A great piece of stonemasons art, I think it’s supposed to be a printer’s devil. It’s on the old government printing office. They knew how to build great structures in those days.
Queen Victoria’s statue outside of the old treasury building, it’s now a casino. A touch of irony there I think.
This fig tree in the botanical gardens isn’t going anywhere, at all.
Even the metal kangaroos look cute and adorable.
Treasury casino and hotel, taken from the corner of Victoria Bridge and North Quay. I will have to get a night shot.
Looking north up the Brisbane River from the Botanical gardens. The Storey Bridge is on the right. The buildings are between the City and Fortitude Valley.
Justice looked like any other statue around the town, so I thought I would give the old girl a different look. Quite a nice statue actually.
Rent a bicycle, they’re all over the place. I nearly got cleaned up by a Japanese tourist in the botanic gardens on one of them. Silent and deadly.
The façade on this building in George street reminds me of flowing water.
This picture started life as a rubbish, long distance shot down the paddock. I went outside with my camera and this hare spotted me near the shed and took off. By the time I reacted and went for the shot he was well away. So I worked in layers and masks, coloured him and the branch up then made a watercolour picture. He certainly showed me a clean pair of furry heels.
This young lady allowed me to take her picture, I put a donation in her case. My, didn’t she belt out a mean piece of jazz. Working in layers and masks again, I made a B&W picture, then highlighted the saxophone, oh and her ring.
I may have a surprise for next Wednesday, more Wallabies but you’ve never seen them like this before. I hope you’ve enjoyed a brief view of Brisbane. Remember all these pics look better when viewed in a new tab or window. Until next week, Cheers,
