belated oktoberfest photos

Oktoberfest, Brisbane, 2010
Giant pretzels, beer, and Oompah bands. Not your average night on the town, but a fun one nonetheless. These are just a few photos from Oktoberfest celebrations in Brisbane two weeks ago. I took these photos on my Canon film camera. Previously it had just been taking up space in my desk drawer, but I’ve recently become fond of it again. It produces much clearer images than my Lomos (apart from the blurring as a result of not using the flash), and it’s all automatic so it’s pretty much idiot proof (yay). You can see more photos from the night on my flickr.

    @Barbara: it was tasty too πŸ™‚

    @LuuH: my thoughts exactly!

    @rebecca: me too! I think it would be the most fun. Definitely a bucket list type of thing to do.

    @sara: it took about five people to finish it off… actually, I don't think we finished it! haha

    it looks like you have a really fun life…i like to see posts like these from other bloggers because its the exact same thing i like to do! like…backstage runway pictures with chutes of champagne are fine to look at…but beer and pretzels and music have a more authentic quality!

    Oktoberfest is my favorite too! I am a vegetarian, so I couldn't enjoy all the brats and sausages with my friends. I did eff up several soft pretzels with my beers though. High fives for soft pretzels and getting drunk.

    Wow this looks like so much fun! Anything involving beer, carbs and men in shorts has my seal of approval anyway!!
