So many white shirts!

This is Riparian Plaza down in the Golden Triangle, it's practically the Matrix down there with all the "suits" but it's too hot to wear coats, let alone overcoats... I found out today that the vampire film Daybreakers was partly filmed in this building, and also at Robina train station of all places.

Good luck for 7 years

It's good luck for 7 years if a scrub/bush turkey crosses your path (I just made that up). These turkeys are funny creatures, they are amazing because on their first day of life they are capable of killing prey for food. They are also quite a part of Brisbane because they just pop up all over the place, all over the city. They can be seen everywhere, streets, parks, shops, near the beach, crossing the road. Generally they are running somewhere. They also ruin gardens with their amazing nests which is hilarious and cute unless it's your garden. Personally I would love to either tame one and keep it as a pet, which is impossible because of their nature, or try eating one just once. The Aboriginals used to eat them after all...

Discovered the fun of rolling raindrops around pumpkin plant leaves in the rain!

The CityCats return!

The CityCats have returned after the flooding. This photo was taken this morning by my mate D.J. from Bulimba, looking over to Teneriffe, and it's well worth clicking to zoom in! There are 8 CityCats and you can see the old Wool Store on the right. Great shot!

Another sunny day in Brisbane

Eagle Street Pier sits right on the river bank in Brisbane city.  It has all sorts of yummy food options and makes up one corner of Brisbane's "Golden Triangle" - the city's prestigious financial and restaurant district.

Outlook Park at the new Eco Sciences fancy area bit...

This is a cute little park which used to be part of the Boggo Rd Jail precinct. It's just next to Park Road train station (the maroon roof there) and there's a barbecue and I think we might have been the first people to actually go there ever and lie on the freshly laid turf.

A different kind of ferry

Spotted a different kind of ferry today. This is probably part of the effort to get the ferry and catamaran network back in action after the flooding.
