Penne Cole's thoughts on food, travel and more
Wandering around Brisbane’s South Bank one grey and rainy afternoon, I chance upon a structure that makes me wonder whether I am still in Brisbane. Sitting in front of me is a small pagoda; it looks like it could have come straight from the shores of Bangkok instead of Brisbane. Upon closer inspection, I find that it is a Nepalese Peace Pagoda, and is one of the remnants of the World Expo ’88.
The pagoda is now one of the South Bank’s multiple tourist attractions, and for good reason. There are intricate carvings on the doors, including a beautiful one of the serene Buddha. The simple wooden benches inside also provide a handy shelter from the fierce sun, and on the day I visited, the intermittent but driving rain. Unfortunately, with the rain, I didn’t get a chance to get an exterior shot of the building.
I thought this would be the perfect shot for this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Intricate. However, I had another reason for choosing this picture – this post is also dedicated to the people of Nepal. My thoughts are with you in this difficult time.
