Toowong Cemetery: An Afternoon with the Dead
After sleeping in too late to go anywhere far away, Bronwen and I decided to drive to Toowong Cemetery where there was supposed to be a small gathering of goths (I’m not sure what the correct term is for gathering of goths—a depression of goths?) for their “Afternoon With The Dead II” event—a picnic and photography were supposedly planned, but by the time we’d managed to get ready and drop past our supermarkets to buy some food for our picnic, it was quite late and we couldn’t find anyone. Somewhat disappointed, we still took a few photos of the cemetery, and ate some cake.
Sculpture by the River
After taking some photos at Toowong Cemetery, Bronwen and I drove out to Hamilton, where we just managed to catch the end of the indoor part of “Sculpture by the River”—people were literally just starting to pack up their purchased sculptures as we walked in, but only a few had been packed up. By the time we walked out, they were nearly all gone.
We then went for a walk through the outdoor part of “Sculpture by the River”—conveniently finishing looking at the sculptures just as it got dark.
After we’d finished looking at the sculptures we drove home—via New Farm Coles as it was after 6 PM and as far as I’m aware that’s the only Coles in Brisbane open later than 6PM on a Sunday.
