Best to use a brown filter for the Molonglo shots.

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????

The Molonglo Sewerage works at night are quite spectacular. You get some excellent shots there.

I’m guessing it is the entrance to johnboy’s secret lair.

Can you get a shot of his writing?

Danman 9:39 am 15 Dec 06

Someone is on the money.

Behind this shot is the stairs from the albert hall side – and some artwork (community artwork I am guessing) on teh wall – before I went down – I was taking photos of Albert Hall, and looked down and saw someone in the tunnel.

Hoping that they had gone by the time I wanted to go down – I just walked down the stairs and there was a homeless guy down there – obviously writing on the wall.

I said hello to him, acknowledging the fact that he was writing on the wall – and that he not stop on my account.

he was rolling a smoke while we chatted – his hands and teeth were really nocotene stained, his face was like dry and cracked leather. He mumbled something about rich people (there was a function @ Hyatt). I wanted him to pose in front of the wall but I did not want to scare or intimidate him. I turned my back to him to frame my shot (signifying total trust) and when i turned back him and his bike were gone.

When I was leaving – I took about 5 minutes to read what he was writing on the wall and let me tell you – there was lots and lots. All poetic socio/political observations from his point of view.

Pretty sad – I wanted to give him some money – but I always think am I condescending them in doing so.

Damn you Christmas cheer – making me sad!!

Where’s Maxwell Smart?

There are places in Canberra that look like this, but I am fairly sure this is not one of the ‘real’ ones, as posting such a pic on a website could get you into a fair bit of trouble.

Interesting that the likes of Aidan Bruford haven’t successfully daubed it.

The NCA must keep on top of graffiti better than the ACT Govt.

That was my guess as well.

Only It’s Commonwealth Avenue by then.

seepi 9:21 am 15 Dec 06

Northbourne Ave underpass near Albert Hall?

Wherever it is it looks creepy.

I am guessing you know JB ?
