Photographer's Note

Brisbane was the first (and last) Australian town I visited and and I was there three times. First, I came by plane from Dubai and waited in the airport for the flight to Darwin. Then I came for a short stay between Sydney and Hervey Bay. And finally, I spent the whole day before my return flight.
Brisbane is the capital and most populous city in Queensland and the third most populous city in Australia. Brisbane's metropolitan area has a population of 2.2 million,urban conurbation, centered on Brisbane, encompasses a population of more than 3 million. The Brisbane central business district is situated inside a bend of the Brisbane River. The demonym of Brisbane is Brisbanite.
Brisbane is named after the river on which it sits, which in turn was named after Scotsman Sir Thomas Brisbane, the Governor of New South Wales from 1821 to 1825. The Australian were not specially inventive!

I think there are three Brisbanites on TE - Chris, Justin and Matthew. I haven't met any of them :(. They are not so active showing their home town as Sydneysiders or Melbournians.

There are many high skyscapers in CBD and other are built. I was fascinated to see the workers hanging very high on thin red line. In WS the whole building and close up.
