South Bank outlined in blue

Every city in the world has a pearl within it's oyster and so it is with Brisbane's South Bank. It is the place where locals and tourists mingle. In some cities this takes the form of a square or plaza, in others it is the bank of a river but wherever it is, it draws crowds. Perhaps it is the entertainment or maybe the atmosphere, never the less it radiates a certain vibrancy and people gather.
On this particular day, my wife and I were riding through South Bank, unaware that a  special event was taking place here, so we decided to lock up the bikes and take a stroll to investigate.

We were pleasantly surprised to come across the annual "Regional Flavours" which is a showcase of approximately 100 food and lifestyle providers from across Queensland. Whilst browsing the myriad of tents, we were able to sample a diverse amount of the most incredible food  as well as finding out about some of the lifestyle alternatives that exist in this great state.

I always find attending a country fair or a regional expo exciting as it gives me an opportunity to have some fun using my camera where, with a little bit of thought, can enhance the storyline.
We ended up sitting on the sidewalk outside a little cafe with an ice cream and a cup of coffee and just people watched, which is a great way to pass the time at an event such as this. 
Cheers and safe riding,
Jimmy Bee
