[MELB] Saturday 29th July

I propose a special event for this week’s Saturday ride.

Let’s all go down to Southbank with cameras and take photos of each other taking photos of Southbank.

Who’s in?

Sounds good.

Though, I think Channel Nine is fucking with the truth… again. It’s their building, if they dont want you taking photos in it thats fair enough. I’d be very suprised if they moved you along out the front.

Once i got a ‘severe talking to’ for lying down in Melbourn Central watching that stupid dancing clock thing. No lying down, they said, its a security risk.

Edit; Sorry, i didnt read the link, id just seen the ACA story. Said security guards are nobs*, and id be willing to fisticuffs them if they tried to tell me what to delete from my camera.

“It was just the facades of buildings, things that would be of no interest to put in a photo album.”

Southgate property manager Kathy Barrance, you are a fuckwit.

I’m in.

But …

  1. I don’t have a camera

  2. It’s the Belgian Beer Cafe Buffet Sat.

I’ll be happy to pose though … but only after I’ve had my fill of waffles.


I’m in. I can even supply a spare camera for you Des :wink:

Sounds good!

All I have to do in that time is;

  1. learn how to ride fixxed;
  2. collect brake (I’ll be in touch v. soon 853!);
  3. get Dan-o to drill fork and affix said brake to the Hillman (assuming that is possible!);

I wonder if I can do it?..

If you can’t get the brake sorted, maybe it’s time to develop a madison braking technique…

Hmmmm…contentious issue.

Swapping it out for a cheap road fork is another option, so as not to TOTALLY DESTROY a good track fork :wink:

how bout we set up on the other side of the river with tripods and massive telephoto lenses and dress in arab costume

The Chaser’s been there, done that, on the Harbour bridge and Lucas Heights.

A couple of years back, we noticed a number of funny (dodgy) looking blokes with telephoto lens hanging round the rowing precint (just the other side of princes bridge to southbank)

It turned out that these blokes were taking pics of all the little melbourne and brighton grammar boys walking down to the river while carrying the boats in their little rowing suits. They then posted them on gay websites.

It made the news.


A little bit different to the anti terrorist photography threat!!!

I do believe that’s an unexplored book market: terrorist photography. So who wants in: Terrorist photography for Dummies

I’m sure there’s a buck to be made.
