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.

Back home :-(

Post holiday depression set in soon after i arrived back in Melbourne. It has stayed with me for a long long time. Yes this is going to be one of those posts where people complain about not being back on holiday and not appreciating what they have. Sure i can go on and on about all the friends i am seeing after 5 months of holidays, but that’s no comfort. I miss Europe and the people there really miss Prague and the great time I had there.

With that said i have been doing NOTHING since back at home. sleeping 6 hours a day, playing playstation 3, and going out taking photos. The inspiration for photos has stopped and the dream of moving to Europe take over my thoughts. With lack of things going on in my life I have left things slip. my blog, flickr, and tumblr. All these things have slipped on the wayside.

But things are changing Big things are happening.

Here’s a few photos that I have done with the help of friends. Photos are the only thing keeping me sane at the moment.

My Christmas came early

So while in Milan I didn’t get much sleep and t all caught up with me when I arrived in florence. the first day in florence I was dead tired and coming down with a flu or a cold. so i spent the day in the hotel alone and watched the avengers on the computer.

That night I got really bored and still didn’t feel like leaving the hotel. What does one do when they are sick and stuck in a crappy hotel?

well the answer is take photos of yourself and have a night of sitting in front of the laptop listening to music and Photoshop them. FUN!

here are a couple of photos that I did that night.

The holiday was/is going really well. Whilst in berlin a few mates and i were going to go on a road trip through czech republic, austria and a couple of other countries. when we arrived in prague we noticed this MASSIVE TV tower sticking out like dogs balls. It was so ugly and yet so beautiful at the same time we had to go and see it up close. we drive to it and noticed that there were statues of babies crwaling up the tower.

On closer inspection we saw that they had no faces and they looked ‘bashed in’

This was weird and interesting at the same time. We didnt expect to see this in prague. My mate looked up on the internet who made the statues and we saw that he had done other stuff around the city. it was too late to go visit them all as we had to leave.

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.

Music and light painting

Ever listen to a song that you havent heard in ages and then all the memories pop back into your head?

As I was plodding along with the music on shuffle I heard a song that I haven’t heard in a while.

Well the first thought that popped into my head was me in my underwear on a fucking hot summers night welding and fitting lights to all sorts of contraptions till the early hours of the morning.

When I had finished welding and modifying the LED lights that i bought it was onto the backyard and time to do some light painting.  I spent a good few hours just having the album on repeat and loud enough that it can be heard in the yard.

There were lots of photos taken that night and lots more over the course of time. some were done in the back of my place, some in drains and in abandoned buildings.

John Part 2.

I did imply in JOHN PART 1 that there will be a part two. THE WAIT is over. you can sleep assured that it has arrived!

I can hear the cheers and the fireworks going off.

party two is really boring. just photos and a stupid opening. YAY!!!!!

OMG it’s a canteen. too bad it’s not like the one in star wars. I don’t think star trek had a really cool canteen in it.

Little baby gas mask.

While in the kindergarten we came across a few of these small gas masks that the children would have worn. It must have been a traumatic experience for the little boys and girls not knowing whats going on and why they have to wear these masks.
