hkskyline's 2008 BRISBANE #4 - Downtown & Mangroves

106. The walk along the waterfront is very pleasant, with a cool breeze and the calming effect of water fully realized.





108. I was surprised there weren't more taller buildings on the other side that would get some very good views.











113. Why didn't I ride a bike around?









117. Huge trees adorn the Botanic Gardens, shielding me from the punishing Australian sun.













123. The serenity was interrupted every now and then by roaring jets taking off from the airport. I had to get some evidence of the annoyance.





125. Interesting to see mangroves in the heart of a big city.

someone needs to educate themselves regarding mangroves

let's just kill crocodiles, they're so ugly, and I feel danger when I am swimming in the swamp
