See you later, Bonnie!

Thanks for the Husker Du post. I'll download some stuff tonight or tomorrow and let you know what I think. I'll begin with Zen Arcade just because it's the one name I really recognise, and I think you once said it was recorded in just 2 days, which is pretty fucking cool.

Here's a rare sight: a route 3 tram under the Flinders - Spencer Street railway viaduct. It is running via the route 55 and is at the foot of Market Street. I can tell you stories about Market Street thanks to my markets work. But I won't.

Have an alcoholic drink.
yes i have to drink wine to keep my fluids up .

barwon water gave me some weird long story about how they are redirecting water because of the ring road work or some shit, but that is accrosss town , . i would rather have no water than brown water cos its the same fucking difference.

Back in January, a Z3 approaches LaTrobe Street on William Street. Note the jaywalker in the distance. I seriously can't believe how much jaywalking goes on in this city. It's got to be the capital of jaywalking.

Oookay. Yeah, wouldn't it make sense to just turn off the water if the works are going to send it brown?

And what, should I maybe not suggest that I come visit you and cin sometime over my holidays if Geelong is being struck by the Apocalypse?

At the intersection of LaTrobe and William Streets, a City Circle tram meets a route 55 Z3 and a whole bunch of taxis.

Got to show Kim that!

Good shot too.

Something taking off that isn't very clear in my photobucket thumbnail.


Edit: Ah, Air New Zealand 737.

That's also cool. Though I think I prefer the Virgin one since the background is a bit more distinct.

My tram stop! And what do you know, more jaywalkers. I also hate that blue building - a cheap attempt at gentrification that has half failed. The apartments are inhabited, but development of streetfront shops has stalled.

Z3 coming up behind a B2 on Flemington Road some day in March when I was going to have lunch with Ali in between classes with U-Wen. I'm such a Superthread social butterfly or something.

Yeah, it came through well.

Hopefully one of the next few days is as clear as it was yesterday, I could get some brilliant sharp photos. I'd need the right wind conditions, too, though.
