Much to my colleague’s amusement, I have developed a strange fascination for lanes and alleyways located in the CBD, and have started poring over a street directory, looking for likely candidates to photograph. I blame this unhealthy curiosity on the digestion of one too many (US) crime shows, in which dastardly deeds occur most typically in (you guessed it) a dirty, dimly lit alleyway strewn with the detritus of the human condition. I had falsely believed that the Brisbane CBD had very few of these places, however I have since located a number of examples of which I have photographed two to date. I’ll leave it to you, the viewer, to determine whether the alleyways and byways our fair city would qualify as possible crime scene movie locations.
