I love that, even after three years of actively exploring this city, I am still finding delights during my daily wanderings.
With only five weeks left before lift off for my big 2012 travel adventure, I have been taking extra care to look around as I walk through Brisbane. This week I’ve been taking photos of the things I enjoy to help remember the walls and trees and streets of this lovely city.
If you’re looking at doing a photo walk of your own, some great places to start are:
- Roma Street Parklands
- South Bank and the Cultural Centre precinct
- City Botanical Gardens
- Ann Street for churches
- George Street (Roma Street end) for a bit of street art, backpacker vibe and pub patrons.
But of course, the possibilities are endless and it’s always more fun when you stumble across the unexpected delights while trying to find your way.
Also, today I realised that Council is hosting $2 photo walks with photography tips over the next few Thursday evenings. What a great way to see Brisbane and learn a bit about photography.
I have yet to do it, but there is also a Heritage Trail around the Brisbane CBD, marked out with brass plates in the pavement – this would be a great way to get to know the city sights and find some great photo subjects.
