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. :lol:

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.
