Just before Christmas we arrived in Brisbane. We had a few days to spend exploring the city and relaxing at the lagoon before Jack’s friend caught his flight home. As a lead up to the festive season the local council were putting on Christmas fireworks along the Southbank. One evening we headed down there to watch the fireworks, which were choreographed to Christmas songs. It was odd being away from home for Christmas and being in a hot country I didn’t often feel festive, but standing and watching the fireworks along the river bank filled me with that Christmas feeling. As some of you may have seen from my Instagram account (there is a link in the drop-down menu) we spent the Christmas period at Surfers Paradise. As it was our first Christmas away from home we decided that we wanted something very untraditional and so we headed to the beach.
P.S. Apologies for how blurry some of the firework photos are, I didn’t have my tripod and with my hands being pretty unsteady at the best of times it’s a miracle the long exposures captured anything at all!
