It was so windy i was being buffeted trying to hold the camera.

This poor Air Pacific flight had a hell of a time getting in, being pushed all over the place by a 16 knot crosswind. The touchdown was impressive, one huge hit that left a huge puff of smoke from the tyres, a bounce and finally it settled. I'd stopped photographing by that point, sadly.

Sounds good to me. When are you finishing work tomorrow? I could stay late at the RHSV to 5pm and go straight there, but if you aren't done until 6pm, I'm not entirely sure how I would kill an hour. Maybe I could do research on another essay at Melbourne Uni.

Just north of Elliot Ave is another great tram spot, this time because you can take photos where it looks like the tram is rushing out of the bloody wilderness.

Also, this tram's destination is a big WTF. It's displaying route 81. There is no route 81! There's an 82! But no 81!

I have delusions of going in early tomorrow, to follow my epic lateness today... I'll let you know how I go.



Also, I can't remember if I posted Brighton railway station before... (UK Brighton, not Melbourne!)


I love bumpy rides in aeroplanes! Way too much fun.

Someone needs to photoshop a dirty great dinosaur busting out of there after it...

I think the driver was just seeing if the railfans were paying attention.

So it's half-right: the tram is going to Essendon Depot, and will even use Flemington Road for part of the trip. But it's not going anywhere near Elizabeth Street!

I can't say i've ever been much of a fan of the Airbus A340-300. It's the silly hairdryer engines that don't do it for me. Here's Cathay 107 from Hong Kong

Alright, sounds good. I'll probably head in to the RHSV around 2pm.

Oooh! No, you hadn't posted that. Awesome!

I wish our Brighton had such a cool, large station. Though Brighton Beach station here is pretty neat, especially due to its peculiarity of having only platforms 2 and 3. Platform 1 is now well and truly out of use as its track is now part of a stabling yard. I have some photos there, but haven't uploaded them.

That's probably easily photoshopped... I do love the anti-bird stuff, though.

I like this one - a bit of clutter around the picture but not like a bloody light pole that's sticking out of nowhere

Nah, I like the light pole. It adds something. I often try to work those things into my shots - at least when I can see them. And I think that plane's main problem is less the design and more the fucking bland livery.

Did some blind photographing today. Haven't looked at the photos yet. Should see how they turned out.
