A place that we have forgotten – Southbank Parkland

So, my long looking forwarded holiday began. We had a pretty late yum cha lunch after picking up my parents and my high school best friend, Edmond, from airport. Because of the limited time available, as we have to head back to Sunnybank for an early dinner, we decided to pay  Southbank Parkland a visit. It has been ages since we last visited Southbank. This is indeed the first time since the Brisbane flood in the beginning of year. Apart from the beach area seems to be bigger, there isn’t much changes at all. We sort of did a quick circle around the park. At one side of the park, we found this places where there are heaps of sea gull around. With bird and my 70-200mm of course are more bird photos. 

We actually spent quite a long time shooting bird there. After that we headed to the Brisbane Wheel, now one of the landmark of Southbank. I have to say, Southbank is a lot prettier with than without it.

It’s almost time for dinner after some photos of the Brisbane Wheel. We stopped by Kangaroo Point before we head back to Sunnybank for dinner. From there is a stunning Brisbane city view. This is made even better with the sunset.

You don’t get much chance to take photo of Guy Sebastian, and even doing it for FREE. I happened to be lucky enough to get such an opportunity. There you go our first Australian Idol.

In the middle of the concert is a very small riot. A group of people aren’t happy about people celebrating Australian Day with Brisbane Flood just happened a week ago. I can totally understand why. It is so sad to see on the news and hear from people who lost their loved one, lost everything as their properties were inundated. But what can people do? Sad things happen everyday around the world. Should the whole society stop whenever a tragedy happened?

Sort of retouching some landscape photos taken 6 years ago and realised the city has changed quite a bit.
