16 km on foot in Brisbane, Australia

In early May, I had a full day for photography in Brisbane at the tail end of a business trip, and walked about 10 miles (16 km) over two separate sessions to cover as much of the downtown area as possible.

I had a great time viewing your photos, you seem to be interested in bird spotting in addition to architecture.

There is so much to say about the skyline photos, especially considering how avant garde many of the new highrises seem to be. Brisbane strikes me as a city where locals are more laid back than in Melbourne or Sydney, did you percieve this in your trip there?

I come from a tropical country and when I imagine one day it will be developed I think it might look a little like Brisbane at street level. You can breathe the humidity just by seeing the photos.

Well done, you deserve a round of applauses for the quality of the shots and the huge physical effort in bringing them!

Thank you for your nice comments about the photos!

I just take photos of whatever catches my eye! I had never seen those birds before, since I am from the US, and thought they were beautiful, so here they are!

This was my first trip to Australia and I have never been to Sydney or Melbourne, so I can't comment on them, but I'm pretty certain that Brisbane is quieter and more laid back than Sydney. Overall it is a very nice city... it reminds me of a smaller Toronto, in a warmer climate.


Christos and Milbert, thank you for your comments as well.

Excellent. You've done real justice to my hometown

You chose two good walks. Around the rivers edge through kangaroo point is especially nice.
