Brisbane Photos: Vulture Street

I have been thinking for a while now about what is the best iconic image of Brisbane. People who live in Brisbane think it is the Story Bridge, but the trouble with that is no-one from outside Brisbane has ever heard of it.

Last Friday, it struck me that everyone who watches Australian cricket has heard of Vulture Street, as it is one of the two ends of the Gabba (the Brisbane Cricket Ground). There is also an album by Aussie band Powderfinger called "Vulture Street".

So I decided that street signs saying "Vulture Street" would be the icon that I wanted to spread.This work is the restult of taking a photo of one of these signs, and then some playing about in Photoshop learning what the different filters do.
