Finishing up the series of pictures Danman took out and about the weekend before last, we have a scene from All Saints Church in Ainslie worthy of an Omen movie.

Got an image in or of Canberra you want to share with the world? Email it to johnboy@the-riotact.com

yeah yeah – I know – I rock !!

Just got in email some guys going around stabbing solitary people on the weekend nights – while mugging them. Usually stabbed in the cheek.

Not too cool for me carting about 2100 buxx worth of camera gear around.

Ill have to get security.

Kudos to all for re-igniting their love of photography (both viewing and taking) – play safe.

Probably do more in the new year – but ill predominantly be in melbourne or busy.

you’ve driven me to dust off the ol’ canon A1 danman. thankyou.

Great photo Danman.

And to the others, thanks for the info as to it’s history – very interesting!

Fantastic pic.

It was dismantled in Sydney, brick by brick, and brought to Canberra by truck and rebuilt as a church.

There’s more info about its history here.

good on you danman – a terrific photo. more please.

bloody big job!! damn…

Gertrude asked that the following be known:

“You may be interested to know that you can see a surviving Mortuary Station on the way into Central Railway Station in Sydney. Look out the left hand side as you leave Redfern. It is called Regent Street, is only used for special occasions (Yule Fest on a steam-train type things) and is apparently built to the same specs as the one formerly at Rookwood, now All Saints.”

im sorry but i just have to ask… how on earth did they move the church from Sydney? did they dismantle and rebuild it??? Ive been to a wedding at all saints and the plaque did not say how the heck its was transported over!

Train to the soup kitchens?

It’s made from people!

NO filtesr – white balance on automatic – ambient light reflected of smoke and clouds.

Jazz – got yer email – just been pretty hectic last few days.

Hope everyone enjoys.
ps. aopparently a few ghosts came to canberra with this building.

Those gone on the Enchanted Canberra Ghost Tours (not a plug – trust me) will know this 🙂

Wikipedia rox. And it seems we’ve got an awesome-looking river styx boathouse.

Who could ask for more?

For the soup Kitchens?

Why would it transport bodies FROM the cemetary?

red filter or similar ?
thats neat.

awesome pic! looks very eerie!

And i believe the odd design comes from being built to drive trains through (so much for the more civilised bygone days)
