The Brisbane festival is still in full swing, so we decided to have a scout around the outdoor festival area tonight, that promises food places, musical entertainment and a 3D chalk walk.
And by a chalk walk….it was actually just two locations…where artists have drawn huge chalk images on the ground, which when you stand on the provided little stand and look down through the suggested aperture, you do get a good 3D feel of the image.
I haven’t quite captured that in the photo….but you can get the idea, and see a very good chalk picture.
We sat and enjoyed a bit of the Friday evening vibe with music from the bar whilst enjoying the sunset views over the river.
And after such a strenuous evening (! cough, cough – any excuse!) some sustenance was required….so naturally to the food trucks we go.
And who could resist topped cronuts and donuts like these? (Hint: not me).
We saw an AFL game at the Gabba, and actually got to walk across the turf afterwards.
Then the evening saw us at one of the events of the Brisbane festival: Rise for the Oceans.
I’ll leave it to the official publication to explain that: “Rise for the Oceans brought together a tremendous line-up of great Australians – Bernard Fanning, Tim Winton, William Barton, Katie Noonan, Jessica Watson among them – in a multi-arts celebration of the Great Barrier Reef, the oceans that surround us, and the 50th anniversary of the Australian Marine Conservation Society.”
A mixed bag of songs, music, talks, vidoes and on stage art.
But the photo for the day? This bug was spotted at some point in the day…..but I now can’t remember where! Could have been on the way to parkrun, but could easily have been at any other point. But it doesn’t really matter.
Two things spring to mind…..
1. Is it trying to ‘hide’ on this blue grout?
2. I have no idea what it is, and indeed whether it is something to be wary of.
