So today was another day in the clean up after the Brisbane floods. Again I was out at Chelmer helping the same friend and again I had to park my car out of the residents area and walk in to the suburb to clean. This time the police and army had stepped up the road blocks and I had to walk 40 minutes to get to the house, across two suburbs. It wasn’t so bad as it gave me a chance to do some more photojournalism before arriving to lift stuff and sort through piles of thrown out rubbish to salvage anything that had been accidentally thrown out.

Last night I headed out to take shots as the sun rose in the shut down Brisbane CBD.We set out from a little before midnight so we can try and capture the mood of a normally bustingly city now shut down in most parts from people and electricity.

So I headed out again today to document the rising Brisbane flood waters. I’ll keep this entry short and sweet as I am about to nap before heading out again. Above photo is of 9 week old puppy Lola who was resting after walking through rising flood waters on Victoria Street, Windsor.
