S.Valentine’s and I got nothing but blondes keeping me company. Actually an India Pale Ale. So I got that going for me, which is beer.
Stepped into a bar that played improvised jazz. They made my night.
Woke up decently late, but just in time to not win at the raffle this morning. This was twice today… I’m a dumbass. I’ll be losing the next three days as well.
Anyway…. Mid-morning i headed down in St. Kilda for the festival. I took a lot a pictures. I actually have shot two rolls in the last two days, which in these dry times is actually really awesome. I’ll have quite a lot to develop when i get back home.
I can’t wait to get back home… this is getting heavy. Melbourne is cool, but 20 days is a long time. If this were an assignment, i’d be all over it. But i have my new house waiting back home. And most of all my girlfriend, who i can’t wait to see.
Thought this was kinda cool.
Harikrishna on the way back. It appears i run into them pretty much every business trip lately. Is this a message? They look cool and they have a great time. I might join them next time. But today, i was just happy to shoot pictures.
Got a run in this morning and some improvements are starting to show. The run around the park was just a few minutes faster, but the up the hill portion i was able to go through with less fatigue. I’d still love to be able to run with someone to push me, but this time the Tron soundtrack by Daft Punk was good enough.
Ran into some youngsters playing… a local sport i can’t remember.
I was expecting to be able to get a couple of rolls of RPX in that slick 2-roll cartridge. Unfortunately they were out, so i went to the next shop and after chatting a little with the guy behind the counter he gave me a discount to try out the Japan Camera Hunter film.
Film is really expensive down under.. it’s usually 18+ dollars, (roughly 13 euros.
So after walking around taking pictures i went by the Yarra river and stopped again at Riverland where they have the awesome Californicator IPA.
Two beers later i was ready for my nap. Woke up to so i could lose another raffle for the book of mormon tickets, and then headed north to Lygon St.
Astor hotel below, same name of my usual hotel in Frosinone. This one looks way nicer.
Finished off my night after a pretty bad dinner at a thai restaurant on Lygon.
Tomorrow i try the raffle again. Twice. Once at 11 the other at 5. Wish me luck…
Today started real early… 6:30 on the shopfloor. So it started out pretty much the same but with a lot more rush. Met up 5 mins late.
Oh well. I ended up with a selfie during lunch break. Sorry.
After work I went to a nice restaurant in Fitzroy on the roof top called Naked for Satan. By that time i stopped in a book store and bought a couple of books. One from Hunter S Thompson and a photography book from Aperture.
Waiting for the bus back to downtown.
And one last drink before going to sleep at Section 8.
Back from my usual position, editing from my computer. The last two days have been pretty intense, and so will tomorrow. I did not have it in me to get back to the room at 11 pm, edit, upload, write AND wake up the morning after at 5.
So this morning started around that time.
All the shops in the alley were either closed or starting up.
Work lasted not as long as i expected, but wasn’t short either. Went back to the hotel, took a nap and around 6 pm i was out and about. Today, docklands.
Tomorrow we start even earlier…
Oh and i’m trying to get a ticket for book of mormon. We’ll see how that goes…
