Lingering Look at Windows : South Bank Brisbane

A window of beauty

Seen on a walk along the South Bank of Brisbane these perfect reflections of the Bougainvillea flowering over an arch.

But there is something else in the reflection. Can you see what it is?

The eye in the sky

Then I turned round to photograph the real thing. The towering eye in the sky. I remember smaller versions when I was a child and then they were called Ferris wheels. and they were in all the fair grounds.

The Bougainvillea is past it’s best but it still is a bright splash of colour.

Well Christmas is over for another year. I hope you are all enjoying holiday time now.


Dawn from ” The day after” has a challenge to find windows and post them each week. I love these Word Press challenges they open your eyes to the world around you. I also enjoy looking through all the other interesting and varied windows from around the world. Go to Dawns link, you may have some windows you can share with us.
