This ferris wheel at Southbank is closed this week. They are in the process of adding a screen to the wheel so they can project a light show onto the screen. When this was taken they were about half way through constructing the screen, and still had to add the missing panels. I expect the holes in the screen were to prevent it becoming a giant sail. The image looked particularly striking in black and white.
This is a 5 image stitch of Red Hill, Brisbane looking towards Paddington from Waterworks Road. This area is hilly and picturesque. You can see Mt Coot-tha in the background. This is where Brisbane’s five TV transmitters are located.
The original is a massive file and has an incredible amount of detail. For example you can see the texture on individual tiles on the church at the upper left, (and this is nearly 1km away) when you zoom in on the original! Surprisingly no-one was out on the verandahs of their Queenslanders enjoying breakfast in the morning sun.
There are some very steep hills around Brisbane. Great for photography, but not so good for walking! While I was taking this photo I heard a dog barking. I looked around and there was a man out the front of his house over the other side of the road. He had let the dogs out the front door, and they were barking at me and wouldn’t come back when he called them. His problem was that all he had on was a towel wrapped around him!
