Day 123 - 2 May 2012 - Skyline


Day 123! Can you believe it? I can't! I actually believe I'm going to make it through the year and take a photo almost every day of the year! I'm already a third of the way through! That's a lot of exclamation marks, but I'm EXCITED!!! :-)

The theme for 2 May at Photo A Day May is skyline.
This shot was taken this afternoon as I crossed Adelaide Street (Brisbane) on my way up to the train station on my way home. I was actually on the pedestrian crossing, so it was a very quick shot. I did get some strange glances, but I'm getting more used to that... LOL! That building at the top of the street is Brisbane's tallest building. I think it is the 2nd tallest in Qld. It has just been finished.

I saw the most AWESOME skyline shot while I was driving my daughter to school this morning, but we didn't have a spare minute to stop and capture it. Amazing sunrise shot of the City skyline. Ah well, it will just have to live on in my memory.

Another City shot, taken further up the hill from the above shot. It was taken in the morning a couple of days ago, but for some reason I didn't share it. This one is straight from my iPhone, no filters, no editing. The day was beautiful.
I love how Brisbane has such mixed architecture. Lovely old buildings from the 1800s and early 1900s. Ugly, ugly buildings from when the skyscrapers started being built in the 1960s and 1970s. And newer, more interesting modern buildings. Some of the old ugly ones are getting facelifts, and I love watching that process - the new interpretation of the old.



  1. Cool shots of Brisbane - I don't know the city so really appreciate this! Reminds me a bit of Chicago (no idea if that's accurate or not. just based on these photos). Killer blue sky!

  2. So different than in my city!!
