Daily Photo – Saturday 12th September 2015 – Mexican Festival

Well today was a pretty fun packed day.

It kicked off with a parkrun fix, where I snapped these two views on the way to the start.

Skyneedle and sunrise.

I’m sure I’ll write a post about the skyneedle at some point.

A chat in the coffee shop, followed by a shower and a five minute walk found us at the local Mexican festival.

Absolutely packed with people, milling around stalls and food trucks.

It would have been rude not to partake of the taco selection available for lunch, wouldn’t it?

And the mexican wrestling display was a real crowd pleaser.

And because the day wasn’t yet over, it was time to get over to the Suncorp stadium to see my first Brisbane Broncos (rugby league) game.

Whilst I may not completely understand the game as yet, I do like the atmosphere. I mean who wouldn’t? There’s fireworks, and a horse mascot that parades the touchline when the Broncos score a try!

Like I said, fun packed day this one 🙂

Daily Photo – Friday 11th September 2015 – 3D chalk walk

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.

New William Street building reflects the sky quite well with all that glass.

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).

Cronut or donut anyone?
