Warana was a festival held in Brisbane with the theme 'by the people for the people' and included a drama festival, colonial fair, writers' week as well as the popular Warana parade.

Today Warana has been replaced with the Brisbane Festival.

Hello, my name is Anna. I’m a wife, a mum, a daughter, a sister, a friend, an employee, a runner and a great lover of our amazing city and beautiful state.

I first started taking photos of Brisbane, about 2 years ago, when I was out pounding the pavement early in the morning. I would see images of our amazing city and want to share them with people and so I decided to post them to Instagram. I’ve been taking photos of Brisbane ever since and when I say “taking photos” I mean with an iPhone! I endeavour to keep my photos to their original colour and sometimes I use filters.
