City Clutter

The Albert Street Uniting Church in Brisbane is a beautiful old church that was originally a Methodist church. It was built in the late 1800’s and opened on 8th November 1889. Although it once stood alone in its grandeur, it still stands out amongst the skyscrapers, a rose among the thorns.

The Victorian Gothic Revival building is built of red brick, trimmed with white Oamaru limestone and a slate roof. The church continues with services and is a popular wedding venue today. This is one of my favourite buildings in Brisbane.

Wetlands

These were taken at Sandy Camp Road Wetlands Reserve in Brisbane not far from where I live. I work in the city and often see ibises scavenging through bins so it was great to see them and other birds in their natural habitat.

Sydney

Sydney is one of my favourite cities. So much to see and some great architecture with the Sydney Opera House right up on the top of my list. I spent a couple of days there recently and here are some shots I took. The history is fascinating so you can read about it here if you are interested.

The Tower of Power

1 William Street, Brisbane, AKA The Tower of Power, is a government administration building which was completed in October 2016. A very nice addition to the city’s skyline.
