As the seat of Queensland’s government since 1868, Parliament House is unique as the first and only purpose-built parliamentary building in Queensland. At the time of construction it was the largest and most imposing building in the state, indicating the sense of optimism felt by the Queensland Government of the time.

The original three-storey wing of Parliament House, facing George Street, was constructed in 1865–68 to the design of the Colonial Architect, Charles Tiffin. The building was in the Renaissance Revival style…

The place is a significant landmark in the city of Brisbane, and it is also of considerable aesthetic significance for its high degree of design and craftsmanship, including decorative glass, ornamental cast iron, marble chimney pieces and cedar and yellowwood joinery.

    A superb shot of the things most of us mere mortals would never get to see but for the persistence and dedication of sticky beaks like William Bullimore. However, I do wonder why people place flags in places where the wind never blows.

  • Thanks buddy. Re: placing flags in places where the wind never blows… this is a political chamber so I bet there’s plenty of hot air in that room haha :)

    These are simply a textbook example of how to do HDR and it is not visible at first glance, you should write a book about it my friend!

  • Thanks Zeljko. You’re one of my greatest supporters and I always appreciate your kind words.

    these open days are wonderful especially if you like history and architecture, its wonderful we have saved such buildings where way too many have been lost good work William

    i reccommend the sydney open day its on in 2012, also if youre in sydney check the state theatre tour its well worth a visit

  • Thanks so much Philip. Yes the Open House day in Brisbane was a boon for me. It took me nearly a month to process all of the images and then I had to whittle them down to my favourites.

    I’d love to go to the Sydney Open House Day. And thanks for the tip regarding the State Theatre tour. I’ll add it to my wishlist! :-)

    Looks more palatial rather than political with this rendering.

  • Thanks very much Eileen.
