Brisbane Pontoon - the day after the 41st Sketchcrawl!


Hi

We passed this pontoon during the return ferry ride back to the Riverside ferry terminal, after the 41st Sketchcrawl in Brisbane. 

I love cranes, building construction sites and bridges etc especially when it's evolving and growing. 

On the Sunday, after visiting the Chouquette bakery in New Farm, I sketched the pontoon from the Wilson Outlook Reserve. It looks like they are turning it into a small park and walkway (here) but I would love it if they turned into an area like Vancouver's Granville Island Public Market (under the Granville Bridge). 

My sketches from the Sketchcrawl are

  1. That is pretty cool that a crane would be able to sit on a pontoon. Those things seems like they can hold a lot of weight without sinking. My uncle has one for docking his boat. http://prestigepontoons.com.au/gallery/cable-pontoons/
