Photographer's Note

while still coming to grips with my first dslr camera, i'm finding that sometimes i need to go back to a place to shoot things again. this is one such case. i'd been messing with my polariser and getting shots that were either too dark or too blown out. so, i came back here and played with the settings and turned the polariser a few dozen times. this is one of the shots i got.

at the far end is the queensland gallery of modern art (goma). it houses some of australia's best young artists and is currently exhibiting work from the asia-pacific area. from the gallery site:

In July 2002, Sydney-based company Architectus was commissioned by the Queensland Government following an Architect Selection Competition, to design the Gallery's second site, the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (QGMA).

A main theme of Architectus's design is a pavilion in the landscape, one which assumes its position as both hub and anchor for this important civic precinct. Critical to this is the building's response to the site, its natural topography, existing patterns of urban generation, and the river.


BACK TO ME NOW!!
on the right is the new queensland state library. from the library site:

The State Library of Queensland offers a more contemporary and relevant State Library for a growing number of Queenslanders.

This knowledge house of Queensland history and culture is equal to any cutting-edge library in the southern hemisphere.

Contemporary and responsive to the changing world of information and ideas, the new State Library offers Queenslanders:

* improved free access to state reference resources, Internet services, media and information navigation services
* engaging exhibitions, displays and events including national and international touring programs
* increased display areas exploring the worlds largest collection of Queenslandiana, renowned heritage collections, as well as emerging ideas
* a relaxing social meeting place for community members that is air-conditioned, quiet and free
* a tranquil spot by the river for quiet contemplation or to read a book or magazine
* an Indigenous Knowledge Centre the first of its kind in any State Library - that explores the oral and visual traditions of our unique Queensland Indigenous culture.


the next few postings will be from the gallery.. i think it's cool
