Photo Request: Brisbane City

Post by SecaBoy » Wed 23 Oct, 2013 7:16 am

Hey

The fiance's mum wants a picture of the city at night, ideally with the brisbane eye in it as well.
she's trying to do something for the engagement party and she said it needs to be able to be printed on A3 at least.

I know its a big ask, but does anyone have anything suitable that we could use?
it would be really appreciated. :)

if not, i'll have to go and try to take a half decent one when i'm home. :)

Thanks.

So from Southbank looking towards the city with the Eye in the picture?

Cam or Ian would know a bit more about this area but the two angles I can think of are from Southbank (Eye is big) or from the Goodwill Bridge (Eye is small).

From Kangaroo Point the Eye would be really small but the city would look nice.

Or maybe, if you had access, from the rooftop of the TAFE at Southbank.

MIL is up today so I might have to escape and try it for you heh

Funnily enough whenever I've been in the Greek Club's reception hall looking out at the city the Eye has been well placed compositionally.

I have this one hanging on my wall in glass. Unfortunately, I cropped it to suit the size of the glass and it has no Brisbane eye

so i managed to get more information about what she wants it for.
she's wanting one from the southbank point of view and the eye because that's where i proposed to Bec.
she'll be using it as the "backdrop" for the cake.

thanks though Ted. that is definitely one i would have printed and framed if i took it too! :)

No promises so if you haven't heard from me when you get back go out on your own and get a shot :)

Damn I wish I had that 16-35 that's on my want list!
