Walking part of my city

So I found this quote and I love it:

“Walkers are ‘practitioners of the city,’ for the city is made to be walked. A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities. Just as language limits what can be said, architecture limits where one can walk, but the walker invents other ways to go.”

― Rebecca Solnit, Wanderlust: A History of Walking

As I mentioned earlier in the week, it was our wedding anniversary on the weekend. We went on several walks, mostly because fancy dining and expensive activities were simply not an option for us. Here is what we saw walking Southbank, the inner south and cultural centre of Brisbane.

I know these aren’t great photos but they really capture a fragment of Southbank that I love…

and Subway graffiti. Te he. You do indeed YOLO, random vandal, you do indeed.

I love Brisbane.
