Daily Photo – Thursday 3rd September 2015 – City Hall lanterns

Another day, another lunchtime wander.

Passed City Hall again, and focused on one element I really like, the light fittings that adorn the outside walls.

Daily Photo – Tuesday 1st September 2015 – Pink City Hall

City Hall in pink

Many of Brisbane’s buildings and structures are lit up at night.

And it is not uncommon for some of them to feature colour schemes. In fact charities can apply for colour schemes to be applied to help raise awareness, or corporates can pay for it.

Tonight, as you can see, City Hall has been turned pink. I could look up if there is a specific reason….but actually I just enjoy the ever changing colours appearing on my familiar city views.

Another random lunchtime walk took me past City Hall today, and whilst as a whole it is a lovely looking building, I’ve started to try and look at the details too.

Windows of City Hall

These different shaped windows made me think of the TV program Playschool from my youth.

Which window shall we go through today?

Daily Photo – Thursday 27th August 2015 – Look up or down?

Don’t know about you, but I noticed there was a recent trend of articles, videos and social media posts encouraging people to look up from their gadgets and experience the world around them.

Whilst walking along Adelaide Street today in Brisbane I noticed this….

Walking on art

..embedded in the footpath it made me smile. Because actually you’ve got to be looking down to notice it.

And then further along the street I noticed this….

Mini logo

…that little logo placed in the corner of that tree grate thingy, is actually the logo commonly associated with Brisbane, used by Brisbane City Council. It represents the City Hall building.

And that lovely looking building will no doubt feature in posts on here now and in the future. Just search my tags for ‘City Hall’ if you’re interested.
