The RiotACT second unit photographer, Stray, had motoring troubles combined with IT troubles, but she persevered to give a different perspective on proceedings, and a different photographic style. A slideshow of her photos is below.

I’ve also managed to YouTube some highlights of the closing ceremony. Oh Canberra how silly you were not to elect the shoulder-standing, whip cracking, Elena Kirschbaum!

For those who missed the rest of the weekend’s coverage there were daily reports of a uniquely fantastic festival and if I do say so myself the photographs are worth checking out.

Was there a fat lady with a horny helmut and did she sing? (too cute an image to let pass by without comment.)

It’s not my scene but I’m glad that it was a success.

What I loved about Corinbank was the opportunity to escape the pressures of daily life for three days. It’s equivalent to a fortnight of holidays I reckon.

The only worries I had were do I need more sunscreen? What band should I see next? Oh no my beer has run out.

Very sad to leave on Sunday.

This hippiefest hype has gone on longer the event itself!

Nice pics – interesting to get a different perspective on the same event.

I also think it would be a big mistake to under-estimate the importance of a three day camping festival (the popular culture equivalent of the Ring Cycle) where Canberra’s artists and entertainers made up such a huge chunk of the program.

Wow you’re really pushing this thing hard.

Put a lot of work into it, and invested a lot of time, got to have something to show, plus I reckon it’s pretty cool.

I voted for Elena on the strength of being able to elect a clown to the Assembly.

Since the election, it is clear the Greens need a whip.

Vote 1 Elena 2012.
