July 15. Day 197. If you build it, they will come

Almost certainly I will be shouted down for saying this but I really hated Field of Dreams. It was one of the lamest, most boring movies I have ever endured. Despite this I seem to have a strong affiliation with the central message "If you build it, they will come".
Brisbane has been building rather a lot of things in recent years and like a moth to a flame every time they do I can't resist turning up.
Today was the Airport Tunnel community open day so true to form I was there taking advantage of the rare opportunity to
a) walk the tunnel and
b) travel along it without having to pay a toll
Fact is I can't resist a good piece of public infrastructure even though I have no idea how that term was allowed to escape from council agendas and form part of the public vocabulary.
I walked both Gateway Bridges, the inner city bypass tunnel and the Clem 7 tunnel for no particularly good reason other than because I could.
Of the 700 plus images I took today to prove I was there I liked this the most. Not sure why, there's just something about the shape and form that is attractive.


  1. Thanks, Susan. This photo almost looks like a painting if you take out the concrete barrier at the bottom. It just doesn't look real. Perhaps that is because of the gray sky.
