Daily Photo – Wednesday 9th September 2015 – Professional Dancers

A few weeks ago I went to a free ballroom dance class. And whilst I found it very challenging, it was also lots of fun.

Circumstances on that night, meant at one point I was paired with the instructor, who did an amazing job of not getting frustrated or showing too much pain when I got the moves wrong….or indeed stood on his feet.

It was a pleasant surprise therefore when I stopped by the front yard of the QPAC (Queensland Performing Arts Centre) on my way to the cinema tonight, to find my instructor with more professional dancers showing how it should be done.

I’d recommend giving it a go, even if only once if you see an opportunity.

Daily Photo – Saturday 5th September 2015 – Bug on a wall

Today was a jam packed day.

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.
