One of my favourite places to be is the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane's Southbank, but I never go often enough.

Although Sunday's display didn't quite meet his standards, it was still really interesting and kooky (I love a bit of kookiness) and a reminder to get in there more frequently. My friend Jessica accompanied me and we had a fabulous day.
