Daily Photo – Thursday 10th September 2015 – Looking Old?

At the top of the stairs of South Brisbane train station is this decorative light. Or is it a lamp?

Looking Old?

It’s in a style that I guess is meant to give the impression of being old or traditional.

I’m not sure it ever is actually used as a light source. Just a random feature at the top of the stairwell.

Thanks Queensland Rail for feeding my joy of random things to see and enjoy on a daily commute.

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.

Intricate design details with what looks like to a be a modern light fitting on the inside.

Daily Photo – Wednesday 2nd September 2015 – Views of Brisbane Festival

Southbank  is busy with yet another festival going on, this time badged as the Brisbane festival.

It certainly brings a wonderful vibrant sight and sound to my view whilst walking over the bridge across the river.

And when I actually walk up close to the area on my way to get to my weekly cinema fix, I spotted these fabulous glass panels at the top of what I think is the Spiegeltent.

I’m sure I’ll be back on the festival site before it leaves town.

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.

Daily Photo – Friday 10th July 2015 – The Maroon Wheel

Wheel of Brisbane - not white
Wheel of Brisbane – not white

I forgot to take a picture today (!), so will use another picture I took on Wednesday (8th July) instead.

You see that night, it was State of Origin night. A big deal for local sports fans. And it seems the pattern, if there’s something reasonably big happening, then the lights of many big things around Brisbane have their colours changed to represent it.

This example, of the wheel being red, is celebrating that the local sports team in this particular competition is named the Queensland Maroons.

So the lights of the bridge, big buildings, and the wheel were all maroon (pronounced marown if you’re a local) tonight.
