Holy Gothic Makeover, Batman!

The State Law Building in George Street - the one that looks like it belongs in a Batman film - is affectionately known to Brisbaners as "Gotham City" or the "Batman Building". At a glance, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was an old 1930s building but it's actually a standard run-of-the-mill high rise that had a fancy refurbishment a few years ago. I reckon it looks pretty classy. It's seen here from across the Brisbane River through a window in the Gallery of Moden Art.

You have set this up really well. I like it a lot.

Are you sure they are called "Brisbaners"? Sounds too normal to me! Queenslanders as a whole are known as "banana-benders" but not sure what someone from Brissie is called - Brisbanite, maybe.
