Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge: 20 April 2018

Which Way Brisbane

Visiting a new city for the first time is a great opportunity to find some new Which Ways. Our first port of call on the cruise was Brisbane.

Brisbane’s main shopping area is centred around the Queen Street Mall. It seems most Australian cities now have a pedestrian mall in the heart of the CBD so now I can add Queen Street Mall to Rundle Mall (Adelaide), Elizabeth St Mall (Hobart) and Bourke St Mall (Melbourne). Sydney has Martin Place but I haven’t actually decided which is Sydney’s main street yet.

I liked Brisbane Arcade which has an attractive outside and some interesting shops inside. At the end of Queen St Mall is George Street where I was photo bombed.

One of the many bridges over the Brisbane River is the Story Bridge, named after a public servant it is the longest cantilever bridge in Australia and was designed by the same man who designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Finally another view of the Brisbane River with some of its bridges which was taken from the Brisbane Wheel at Southbank.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
