My hometown, Brisbane, Australia, is a city everyone seems to look over and take for granted. I admit that once I used to see Brisbane as a dull town where nothing happened; however, I’ve recently come to appreciate it more and more. Now I see it through an entirely new pair of eyes. I created this gif set in the hopes that it’d change people’s perception of Brisbane (or even their own towns) and allow them to see it the way I do—as a colorful, vibrant, and totally groovy city.
**A word of warning: One of the gifs in this series has a strobe effect.**
