Here are a few photographs taken near the Roma Street Parklands in mid winter 2014. This time of the year makes for wonderful light. Please click on any of the images to enlarge them. I enjoyed this image because of the shadows and the light, the plants were being highlighted, and of course the texture and mass of the rock wall.
The boring box takes on some for of comic life in this image.
I just love the mixture of light and colour. The position of the man walking adds a contrast that emphasises the mass of the highly engineered concrete structure. I was very lucky with this photo, as just as I was about to take it, the train to the right paused, just long enough before it then reversed away.
In the next photograph, someone is having a laugh about garden design. This is a photograph of the railway station next to the parkland. Look closely at the little garden in the middle of the image. (click to enlarge) Is this the real Roma Street Parkland?
Signs are always great fun.
and now for a few more from elsewhere in Brisbane
