Beautiful Brisbane – August 2015 (2)

This is my second post for Cardinal’s Changing Seasons Challenge for August. The first post was from a lazy Sunday afternoon.

The photos in today’s post are from the Saturday night when my friend and I went out for my birthday dinner – we started the evening with a stroll through the Southbank Markets, taking shots all the way. Then we stopped by the wheel for my Wheel-ly Long Exposures shoot, before heading to dinner at Harajuku Gyoza. Those who have connected with me on FaceBook and Instagram would have seen the iPhone shots from dinner πŸ˜‰

It was a fun night and I was happy with the shots that came out of it. If you noticed the rack of collars and leashes in the gallery above, I should add that I bought Miss Gidget a new collar and lead, pictures below. Have a great day!

  2. What a shot of the Wheel and the bougainvillea arches, particularly, but not only. Miss Gidget looks very charming.

      Thanks so much for that. MissG just had a big bowl of chicken and rice (so did I actually) and she’s now sleeping beside me πŸ˜€

    Fantastic shots Desley! You’ve surpassed yourself with 2 entries this month, way to go girl! I love the walking away from the wheel photo, it is really evocative. Also think that the new collar is a winner!

  4. A good idea to split it in two posts. I will learn from your wisdom, instead of posting 100 photos like I did in my post. πŸ™‚ Great to see some night scenes from Brisbane and I hope you enjoyed your birthday! Happy birthday to you!

      Thank you Lisa, I love that one too but I think it gets hidden amongst the others in the gallery. Thanks so much.

    They are all fabulous, as usual. Frenchie in Bandana was my favourite until, of course, I got to Gidget. So sweet.

        Yes, it seems that when you go around your local environment with a camera in front of your eyes you see things differently. And then you start to play with the shots πŸ™‚
