365:173 The Keeper of the Treasure

What was the original Brisbane treasury building has been turned into a casino and hotel. Appropriate I guess. It takes pride of place at the top of the Queen Street Mall looking out over the River. The forecourt is where the farmers market I shot yesterday is held, and this shot was taken from across the road just into the mall.


She is a beautiful old building and they go to great effort to show her off in the best light. Tonight she is bathed in red, but the colour is changed regularly, green around St Patrick's Day, red white and blue for the recent Queen's Jubilee and any number of other hues depending on the mood.
