HOPPING ABOUT AT KANGAROO POINT

We went to check out the parks at Kangaroo Point for a suitable Camera club outing. First we hopped under the bridge but didn't find it that good for photos and there weren't many parking places. So we hopped up to the top of the cliffs overlooking the river, it was much better there.

 Our iconic Story Bridge.

 The sculpture "Venus Rising" by Wolfgang Butress is 23m high and is a stainless steel structure made up of hundreds of interlocking rings and polished tubes which twists and creates a hollow spiral.

 St Mary's Anglican Church built in 1873, its distinctive stone work is inspiring.

The Brisbane Australia Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints built in 1998 in Kangaroo Point.

  4. The stone work in the church is brilliant, so warm and inviting rather than often austere grey we usually see here.

  6. Nice bright scenes - would seem a good venue for a trip. I have been out and about a bit in the last few months - the trips to Indonesia and the UK were work based - but I always add on a few days of leave if possible - and in the UK I took a week! By having the days off before the work, I always claim that works gets better value for money out of me - thats what I claim anyway!!

  17. Wonderful shots. That sculpture is just amazing. And I liked your St Mary's - beautiful and simple! Less certain about the Church of latter-day saints, which looks very OTT. As they often do.
