Greece and graffiti.

When i was in greece in december I took a stroll around athens and noticed there was lots of graffiti around. so i took my camera with me and started snapping photos. here are just some of the snaps i took .ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage

The other day was was reading a news article about a small lake near the westgate brdige that had turned pink. This pinkness in the water is caused by an algal bloom that is triving in the water. algal bloom colours can range from purple, pink, red and green.

this particular algal bloom at the park was pink.

here are two photos from my flickr page.

Бузлуджа.

This place has been one abandonment that i have always been interested in. the soviet feel of it and the mosaics on the wall have always appealed me to it. While traveing around europe the past few months i knew that i will see it at some point.
A plane to bulgaria and meeting some friends from Australia in sofia and a car is all we needed. we set off on a road trip to buzludja. we got there on the wednesday. had a look around this fantastic structure. couldn’t find a way in. spent 30 mins looking and wondering how to get in without breaking anything.

by chance a mate saw a way in. we needed some rope so we went to the local hardware store. (30 mins away) on our return it was too late in the dayto go in.

The morning had come along and off to explore this building. once at the top we met some locals who were looking at the sourrounding mountains. we chatted to the husband and wife. turned out he had gome to this building when it was opperational.

we asked him questions about it and bulgaria. he didn’t have a good experience of the place. he doesn’t like it. didn’t want to ask too many details. He also mentioned that it’s going to get renovated/restored soon but doesn’t know when when.

after a good 30 – 45 mins of chatting they left. Time to head in…..

this is what we found.

chernobyl video.

While walking around taking in all the lives that got left behind in pripyat and chernobyl i took 44 minuts of footage.  The resulting video is what came out of those 44 minuets.

Banned from facebook.

As much as we all hate facebook and despise the rules set upon us from facebook, we do need it. it’s a great way to share information on a mass scale. post stupid with you and your mates, do a check-in (fucking hate them!) and share videos from YouTube about monkeys attacking a car full of tourists.

Every now and then I would post a photo that could be deemed offensive or inappropriate. That wont stop me posting photos. If you don’t like it don’t comment on it. If you get sick of my photos then defriend. IF you don’t like it make a groaning noise and look away. Simple.

You would think it was that easy. No.

The other week I clicked on the bookmark for facebook. a different screen came up from the news feed.

Ok so it’s not the most tasteful photos and they are naked, but you don’t see cock or arse. Sure jesus is covering their bits but it was easter. what did you want my to do? have santa cover their junk? that would just be weird.

I clicked on continue and facebook told me off and said i was a bad boy. blah blah blah!

I thought that would be the end of my slap on the wrist. No. I got a banned for 24 hours. really facebook? you think that’s going to stop me posting photos?

 

I don’t know who reported the photo could have been a ‘friend’ of mine or a friend from one of the two people tagged in the photo.

This hasn’t been my first ban on facebook and it won’t be the last.

Down by the train yards

This particular train yard has LOTS of freight trains that have been sitting on the tracks rusting away over the years. It was about a 5 minuet walk from my house but I hadn’t explored it in the 1 and a half years that I have lived here, Till one day when on a mission with mariarchi we decided to go and take photos of the rusting trains and the offices that were then.

The basement.

first attempt at this place was a failure with the WLGS’s. This place was the cream of the crop when it came to UE in melbourne. Melbournians tend to trash the site and with-in a matter of months once the word is out a place is ruind and graffed over. back to the failure of out first attempt.  We had out hearts set on entering this place and seeingwhat is inside. No one had been in there before and it looked prime for the taking. WLGS never got organised to explore this site and then we started seeing photos of it on flickr. It had been found out and now everyone knew about it. It would be a mtter of time before the vandals got they mits on this pristine place and ruin it we thought. trying to get everyone together at the same time is always hard so i decided to go to this place with a mate and report back to the rest of the WLGS crew.

My mate and I were out at a site that will remain nameless. spent a few great hours there taking photos and exploring this HUGE site. We were like kids in a candy store.

after a couple of hours my mate points to some stairs that head to a basement. we decide to investigate them. to our surprise it lead to a musty room with water dripping from the ceiling. the mud on the floor made it very difficult to walk. All this didnt matter to us as we had stmbled onto something big. something that no one would have seen in over 20 years.

A room full of files and records from the company. As I was trying to remember the photos from the other people on flickr from this place no one had posted photos of the basement. Were we the only ones to have ventured down to the basement?

Friday night.

This is a rant and a test to see how to work wordpress.

My First friday night at home alone. How the fuck did this happen? why did i decide to stay at home alone When I could have gone to any of 3 things that I had on tonight?
First is a friends birthday party. I really would have liked to have gone and seen my exploring friends away from a drain or an asbestos ridden abandoned building.

Second was a party that a mate was having. that would have been ok to goto.

Third thing I could have done was go draining with a few mates to a drain that i hadn’t been to yet.

The reason that I stayed at home was for the past week i have been coughing my lungs out like it’s going out of fashion. last week a group of us went into the deathstar. The deathstar is a sewerage overflow tank that is great for light painting.

while it doesn’t get used there is a small layer of dried up poo on the floor. this isn’t that bad but when we were all there everyone was walking on the dried up poo and kicking up poo particles.

the morning after going to the deathstar i felt less than ordinary. Didn’t think much of it at the time. the day went on and and i felt worse than i did in the morning. While visiting the parents place later on in the afternoon i developed a bad cough and a fever. time to go home and rest. Sunday arrived and I was in a horrible way. coughing up phlegm of the green colour and my brain was fucked. couldn’t think straight.

Took the Monday and Tuesday off from work and got me some DRUGS from the docs. fever went away but the constant coughing still remains with hints of phlegm present. hooray for chest infections!!!!!  So as i try and regain what little health i do have left i stay at home watching bad TV and not trying to think of what everyone else is doing and how good of a time they are having.
