Fabs Brisbane 2008

I made the trek north to Australia's third largest city - Brisbane.
It has a population of 2 million.













Some of the best steaks can be found at Breakfast Creek. Even the Steak Rolls are nothing like it...





































Didn't have tickets to Andre Rieu but managed a glimpse of his castle.

I visited the Mt Coo-tha lookout which is located 10 kilometres west of the city. It has the best views in Brisbane at more than 200 metres above sea level stretching east to Moreton Bay and the Pacific Ocean.







A little clearer





















I could easily see my uni at Banyo (Goldish buildings on the hill at centre)

Time for a Black and White insight into modern Brisbane.

In 1859 they broke away from New South Wales, but the southern influence remains



And yes they are watching, mostly with envy and jealously.



Brisbane is everchanging, the accelerator has only gone up and up.



Aspiring to success because they are indeed the smart state.



The money has flowed in recent years





Lets build a tower to the heavens



At street level, people go on with their daily business



despite the constant work taking place on the streets and squares.



Reminders of the past remind us of simpler times resisting the many attempts of change going on around them.





The bridges bring the city together and links it to the world



Brisbane is a city where life is interconnected, a place where connections are pivotal to success





The laneways provide mysteries that I have yet to answer.



The spirit of the season is always in you, whatever it is, Christmas, Easter or State of Origin



Creativity is welcome in the smart state



But then why did they let this get built???



Always amazing, everchanging



Brisbane wants to be at the top of the game



Unlike Sydney or Melbourne, a friendly, a casual chat in Queen St is the norm.



And having fun with your mates on the weekends is standard. Lets hook a line at Wynumn this weekend



What are questions are to be answered??? Stay tuned!!!

I usually find second and third cities more beautifull than main city and capitol cities. That is the caso with Brisbane.

Great street shots. Brisbane reminds me of a Mini-Singapore and Vancouver a bit.
