That's the big turnoff for lobster, with me.

I don't believe I'm too far off that height.

I'm tall enough that I'm intimidated (usually, rightfully) by people taller than myself.

God DAMN the Tullamarine Freeway. The Moonee Ponds Creek bridge is such an awesome photography spot ... and the fucking freeway is built directly above the Creek, casting shadows everywhere.

Bastard. I'm 5'6-7". I was meant to be 6', but the medication I had to take for a couple of illnesses when I was five or six years old really stunted my growth.

Just what you want, a photography challenge. Once you've photographed everything to death, you can find a way to photography it well in challenging conditions.

Which I'd say you've done well, there!

OK, now I know this shot's blurred, but let's pretend it's due to the speed of the trains and it's really an ACTION SHOT!

The Siemens unit in the background is running left to right, while the VLocity in the middle and Comeng (with driver's cab door open) in the foreground are running right to left.

At least you wouldn't regularly hit your head in the emergency exit top hatch on my buses.

That fucking hurts, and I always feel like such a dick after I do it, too.

Hah, true. I need some more zoom on my camera, because if I had that, I could probably capture some rather good shots of the trains on the western approach to the bridge.

Thanks. Personally, I'm not happy with the loco being all in shadow while the carriages aren't, but the photos of it before it went all in shadow have the sun on the side of the loco and the front of the cab still in shadow, which looks even worse in my opinion. At least in that one, it's consistent shadow.

My appreciation of yellow extends as far as this:

I may as well kill off the series of the Star Alliance Airbus.

Hah, yeah, true. 5'6-7" is rarely too tall or too short for anything. Just a few of the footbridges over the railways, really. 5'10" would probably work well, even. If I stand on tiptoes, I can just peer over, though it's not comfortable and it's hard to line up a good, accurate shot.
