johnboy 15 December 2006 32

Continuing Danman’s series of pictures taken over the weekend here’s his descent into the depths…

Anyone going to guess where it was taken?

Jazz, I owe you a tenner…

In a drunken state last night I happened by that old homestead and out buildings near Dunlop. (No, I wasn’t driving…)

That is one spooky old joint at 0300 in the morning with it’s whitish walls glowing in the dark.

Jazz, I put a tenner down on Jimbo not showing up again by the time we next meet at the all bar nun.

Head out deeks forest at night in winter. Bitterly cold, but the regrowth encrusted in ice reflecting back light is quite surreal.
My POS camera doesn’t do night shots tho.

Danman, if you do head out past Dunlop on Ginninderra Drive there’s a tree alone on a hill in the distance which looks exactly like the Karate Kid tree. THAT is worth the drive.

Damn you Jazz – I snorted coffee out my nose on that mental image.

Jazz – RE Lessons – hit me with an email at – ill give you some good resources to get started.

Failing that – I can always be found skulking in the shadows down by the lake most (non school) nights.

Jim, its a bit like the train platform to hogwarts. You need to run very fast, straight at the end wall and you’ll make it through.

But Al, Dan had his back to the phone booth!

Seriously Danman is going to be soundly thrashed for revealing the entrance to our secret lair.

(and if anyone wants a laugh tonight head down there to see Jim poking around looking for the entrance)

Re Maxwell Smart – if there was just a phone booth at the far end…

Just past Dunlop. When you get to the end of Ginninderra Dr it will be pretty much right in front of you in those paddocks there.

Thumper – past dunlop or what ?what side of teh road – landmarks etc ?

Jazz Jazz 11:31 am 15 Dec 06

yeah, i wouldnt mind. I wish that my photography was that good. I’d like to think i have a good eye for composition but sadly my technical skills are lagging a bit behind.

NIKON D70 with a 17mm(wiiiiiiiiiiide) to 70mm nikkor AF lens – optex tripod (120 bucks at chadstone JB Hifi 2 years ago) 2million cp hand lantern for filling (or colouring in the case of the haunted tree) coloured theatre gels from lighting cans (green red and blue) and my time patience and experimentation.

I dont bother with filters or post production – but hay thats just me. Im a puritan and believe the only editing need be brightness/contrast – all lighting/focal etc effects are all in the field.

Want lessons 🙂

Danman, at the western end of Ginninderra Drive there is an old early 1900s house and stables.

They’d make for some good shots as well.

Jazz Jazz 11:01 am 15 Dec 06

Danman, what gear are you using to shoot these?

Danman Danman 10:10 am 15 Dec 06

Primus – the brown album – my fave.

I think the air os brown down that way – will need a negative brown filter

Ari Ari 10:08 am 15 Dec 06

Best to use a brown filter for the Molonglo shots.

Danman Danman 9:58 am 15 Dec 06

Sheperds lookout @ sunset – ill have to look into the molonglo sewerage place – however – not too keen leaving my car unattended out there at that hour – as I have seen many a car torched/vandalised there.

On another note- the ACTEW website tells me that the trunk sewer inlet at Molonglo Sewerage is tall and wide enough to sail a boat in. Bar the smell and biohazard – I woudl reallyt like to have a look at that. Tunnels excite me.

Thumper, have you been out parking lately????
