So, I’m pretty sure that this was/is meant to be Brisbane’s answer to the London Eye, but it falls very, very short.  I haven’t personally been on it, but I’ve been told many-a-time that it’s really not worth the money or effort.  On the plus side, it makes for a pretty picture at night, so I guess that’s a small victory?  I figured that it would make a fantastic black & white shot since, well, it’s pretty much black and white anyway!
