Weekly Photo Challenge – In The Background

The Brisbane River divides the city of Brisbane in two as it makes its way from its source near Mount Stanley to Moreton Bay, a journey of 344 kilometres. It is crossed by sixteen bridges within the city boundaries. One of the newest is the Kurilpa Bridge, completed in 2009 for use by pedestrians and cyclists. Its cables, masts and spars create a dramatic effect but they are almost overshadowed by the city skyline in the background. Kurilpa means “place of water rats” and is the Aboriginal word for the area around South Brisbane and West End.
