These don’t make any tourist guide, but they do make a worthy photograph and also a talking point.
OK, so the cool red bicycle above the bike rack at the Queensland Institute of Technology campus at Gardens Point isn’t so much curious, as funky but these other two could take some guessing.
So, what are they?
First we have something that looks like it has come straight out of the Day of the Triffids.
In fact, it is an equipment hire business at Eagle Farm with its cherry pickers lined up like, well, triffids.
The other is this forest sitting behind a fence in the City Botanical Gardens. What is it?
Trees are being trained into shapes and pieces of foam have been placed among the branches to show them which way to grow.
Nevertheless, it makes a quirky image.
So that’s it for today – nothing historical or of great architectural significance, just some of the more offbeat images about the place.
And now I’m off out of the city for a couple of days by the beach on the Sunshine Coast, about an hour’s drive north of Brisbane. And there’s nothing wrong with a coastal contrast either.
