Images of Canberra – The Carrillion from an unusual angle

By johnboy - 8 May 2005 29

SpecialG has sent in a wonderfull picture of the Carillion taken from a hot air balloon.

The arcs of King’s Avenue Bridge and the curves of Aspen Island and it’s bridge, from this angle, make one realise what cunning buggers the original planners were. Anyone care to speculate what the watercraft going under King’s Avenue is?

Mong On, yet again you have managed to take the anti-war movement back a few steps, and we thank you. ANZAC day is all about remembering those were lost due to war, and remembering those who have come back, forever changed. It is not a celebration of all things war and it never will be.

Actually I recall that I said I had a photo from ANZAC Day. That was it….

If your mind can somehow twist that into an anti American mantra then so be it.

I for one was appalled at these photos, but not surprised.

My thoughts exactly….

Some looney anti war ravings perhaps?

Funny how there is this view out there in some people that if you joined the services you actually want to go to war. In fact, if anyone doesn’t want war, its generally services people and ex services people as the current serving members have everychance of being dead, not a good career move, and ex services have already been on the two way firing range and don’t want to see others end up the same way.

Once again, I see no relevance in the link.

Another war, another dollar. Or lest we forgotten?

I could have said ‘is that the photo of the Aussie backpacker, passed out on the grave of the fallen comrade, stubby in hand?’ but that just seemed so sophomoric.

I only said it because I knew you’d like it, chest-Thumper!

I don’t get it ….. wot do those pics have to do with Anzac day ?

Thumper 1:00 pm 09 May 05

And that has exactly what to do with ANZAC Day?

Hooded guy on box? Human pyramid?

I have no idea what you are talking about.

Mong-On 12:35 pm 09 May 05

Yay! ANZAC day. Is that the photo of the hooded guy on the box or the college-prank inspired human pyramid?

“Smithers! We’ll need electrical wire, a hood and someone who can really point at genitalia.”

The watercraft is one of those row boats from the other basin. They obvoiusoyl got lost, and have decided to chuck a couple of hot laps.

This is quite artistic. Very nicely framed.

Thumper 8:36 am 09 May 05

I’ve got an ANZAC Day pic somewhere. If I find it I’ll send it in.

I’d like to applaud the recent spate of pictures, simply breathtaking. I can only hope my craptacular effort spurred ya’all into saving RiotACT from me and my shitty digicam.
