Pining for the falls

By 26 June 2013

Ausguy81 may not be able to get to the falls, but he can take a picture.
I would like to add my voice to the chorus of people asking for Ginninderra Falls to be returned to the people. I think is a real shame this is as close as we can get…

Raiders Lime getting into our water supply

By 24 June 2013

Holden Caulfield has sent us these rather disturbing images:
Raiders premiership!
Why didn’t someone tell me the Raiders won the premiership this year? At least that was the first thought that entered my mind when I saw this lime green water at the National Gallery yesterday afternoon.

A day of dog walks in time lapse

By 23 June 2013

All in four minutes!
Here’s my first go at a time lapse, inspired by, but nowhere near as professional as, the recent time lapse of Canberra hosted here

Westpac in Canberra history

By 18 June 2013

Following yesterday’s Then and Now featuring the Commonwealth Bank; Westpac have been in touch with their own historic photos to remind you of their enduring presence in the region.

2) City branch, [...]

Civic Centre Railway shots

By 12 June 2013

Peter sent us these fun shots of Canberra from yesteryear.
To mis-answer Merc’s question about pictures of the railway in Garema place, see “fig 2-14 panorama.jpg”
According to my copy of “Canberra’s Engineering Heritage” (2nd ed, 1990, isbn 0 85825 496 4), the railway from Queanbeyan skirted the east basin of LBG, along what is now Parkes [...]

Ask RiotACT – Is this wattle early?

By 11 June 2013

Rioter Grump has a question for the Riot collective:
Hi, just noticed some wattle blooming up the end of the street – can the hive mind say whether this is normal (I suspect it’s a good 8 weeks early) or is this another harbinger of global warming?

Road works for winners

By 11 June 2013

Verbruggen street in Melba is the subject of some roadworks.

Anyone want to take a stab?

The life of the bridge to come

By 11 June 2013

Over the last few weeks many large precast spans have been delivered and parked on John Gorton Dr (traffic being diverted via the service rds) near the point where it currently connects with Uriarra Rd.
I assume the assembly of the bridge will take place soon…?

Entrance exam at the Belco SuperCheap Auto

By 6 June 2013

This in from Andrew:
Can it be that hard to work out what ‘push’ means?
Perhaps the clientele of SuperCheap auto Belconnen need more help than most shoppers to get in and out.
These instructions made my day.

Which of course brings to mind the genius of Gary Larson.

Confuse the foreigners down Hipsley Lane?

By 6 June 2013

An odd combination of signs: are they renaming Lonsdale St, in which case perhaps it should be “Hipster Alley”, or are they just trying to confuse tourists?

Thanks John!

By 3 June 2013

Fun Machine launching a single called “Naked Body” was always likely to resemble the last days of Sodom.
