This photo was taken by police from woden station on a compilation disc i managed to swindle and yes unfortunatly the date was wrong on the camera. !t is part of a 3 piece collage the first being in the morning, clear blue sky, second being the above and the third being a black cloud behind all in the one day!

That’s a chills-down-the-spine photo. What time was it taken? 4-ish?

For me and my neighbours, it was when the sky darkened so much that streetlights popped on – we’re a small loop-street group and most of us have lived there for over 20 years – we just gathered and tried to make some sense of it NO ONE had heard any word of warning ‘this is what you should do/be doing’ from the ACT Government.
BTW – on Comrade Bruford – it’s ironic that that there a glossy flyer on Action buses now, about graffiti and the reporting thereof…..

I should add that yes I really do remember what it was like.

Pity our elected representatives have forgotten….

That is a seriously good shot….

postcard sort of stuff…

Well done !
