Curves and Edges
Curves and Edges

I have walked through Brisbane Airport more than 100 times. On a return fight from Sydney recently, on a Friday night after 9pm, I noticed this structure on the rail station, which is one floor up from the main walkway between the terminal and the carpark. I’m sure I must have seen it before, but this was the first time I really took notice of it.

I love the curves and edges (sounds like a John Legend song, LOL) in this structure and I thought that it would make a nice photo for Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic. I took the photo with my Olympus OMD EM5 camera, with the 17mm lens (35mm equivalent). It was quite dark, so I used a wide aperture (f4.0) and a very slow shutter speed (0.4s) at ISO200. I was shooting handheld, so have learnt to control my breathing while taking the photo to keep it as sharp as I can.

Ooooh!! I just realised that there is a slight selfie happening in this photo – can you spot it?! LOL.

  1. I wouldn’t have spotted the selfie if you hadn’t mentioned it! ‘Twas a bit like a ‘Where’s Wally’ challenge to find it but I knew it had to be in the glass somewhere! Ended up like a ‘Kilroy was here’ – eyes peeking up.
    I have been to the airport too, but never caught the train so haven’t noticed these curves. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    1. Thanks Norah. I’ve never caught the train either but I have to walk past this structure every time I go to the carpark so it’s really weird that I’ve not noticed it before. LOL.


  2. Got it! It’s funny the things you walk past and never notice. I’ve gone through that airport heaps of times too, but I don’t recognise that structure! I do recognise the carpark at the back though… sigh…

  3. I love the Brissie airport! During my short stint in AU, I was based out of an apartment in Clayfield and I took the train to the airport many times. Every time I flew it was sunny and the airport always seemed breezy and open with all the curves and glass. That was a long time ago but this picture brough back those memories.

I'd love to hear from you!
