World Cancer Day

_DSC2590

I know, I know another Story Bridge photo but I can’t help it. 🙂 I love this bridge and the city that hosts her in all her magnificence. Besides this one was for a very good cause, World Cancer Day which was on Sunday, 4th February. Brisbane joined other major cities across the globe to paint the world blue and orange and what a wonderful display it was. My photo, which was shot for ICON Group, made the header and top of the page of the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC). Some of the photos included the Empire State Building, Niagara Falls, British Columbia, Jordan, Switzerland and many more.

There were other photographers about as people occupied picnic tables and blankets at Wilson’s Outlook; a magnificent spot to enjoy dinner with a view. A black curtain languished behind the city buildings and I thought we’d get a downpour but the clouds eventually lifted, and once again the Story Bridge shone brightly sending a positive message to the world.

It was a fun shoot and an absolute privilege to be a part of this great worldwide event. Visit the UICC page and see all the World Cancer Day photos here

Sunset Over the Captain Cook Bridge

I almost didn’t go for my planned shoot after work this afternoon because of the cloud cover but I’m glad I did. It looked like rain was going to set in but for a short time the clouds parted for this glorious sunset over the Captain Cook Bridge. Within an hour it it was blue. Nature certainly likes to show off 🙂

Nepalese Pagoda Revisited

Another photo on the Nepalese Pagoda at Southbank. This was taken a couple of weeks ago and the trees were much fuller this time.

See the original post here.
The Nepalese Pagoda is one of South Bank’s most treasured attractions. Originally brought to Brisbane as the Kingdom of Nepal’s contribution to World Expo 88, the three-story high Pagoda is now located in the heart of the Parklands. It features 80 tonnes of hand-carved Nepalese timber and took more than 160 Nepalese families two years to build. It is also one of only three Nepalese peace pagodas in the world to be located outside of Nepal. [Source]
