Read All About It!


A parting shot at Flinders Street Station as I rushed to catch a train home.

f/4.6 rendered not enough dof for sharp focus on face. Dynamic focusing locked onto the news!
The commuter has in his hand a "Myki" card, Victoria's public transport, prepaid "touch-on/touch-off" ticketing system (in case you needed to know!)


E-3 + 40-150mm kit lens + Pop-up flash - (this thread might also have been titled "Burnt Rice" - NEVER COMPOSE POSTS WHEN COOKING RICE!)

[Centre]I only saw the headline when I downloaded it, Keith ... I should have taken a copy to read on the train, it was a freebie.

It would have made really inspiring reading if he was shot dead ON the train, wouldn't it?

Like when we were on holiday in Sweden once, and the local headline was "Three policemen murdered." And there we were, in a summer cottage, right out in the sticks, with no-one else around, and none of us speaking any Swedish anyway...

Sometimes better not to know.

... or it might also have been a photographer shot dead at the station while taking pictures of girls handing out papers ... Melbourne's laid back lifestyle is never dull, Keith!

Love this guy's underdaks! I think he was 'advertising' !

Re: Read All About It!

What amazed me was that he lay there under a blazing sun in 32'C (90'F in heat absorbing black) for the whole hour I was there taking photos.

Not once did I see him hydrate himself ... MADNESS is ALIVE AND WELL downunder, mate!
