We had a few trips to town for appointments. I tried to capture the city buzz with my phone.

The heritage listed Albert St Uniting Church dwarfed by the first tower to be built in Brisbane in 1971.
I was struck by the squiggle on this building. After some research, I discovered that it is an imprint of the Brisbane River. The building was completed in 2015. The building is nicknamed "Brisbane River Tower". The smaller building next to the tower is called 192 Central. Both buildings are owned by Daisho, a Japanese company.
The bronze sculpture is one of four at the entrance to King Edward Park. The sculpture is called Forme de Mitte (Forms of Myth) by Arnaldo Pomodoro.
A Jacaranda tree is trying to soften the concrete jungle.
Another day we were walking from the CBD to Fortitude Valley and passed Warry St where Hassel Architect's building is on the left. It is a heritage listed building. It was a bakery, the ovens are still a feature inside the building. This is where our daughter works when she is sent to the Brisbane Office from Sydney. The Poinciana Tree brightens up the street.
