AUSSIEMANDIUS - "GNDN (GOES NOWHERE, DOES NOTHING)"
(BEST VIEWED LARGE)
"THE PIPES, THE PIPES ARE CALLING..."
They'd led nowhere for years until, After the Fall, there was nowhere left to lead.
The abandoned City Of Melbourne Electric Lighting Station on the corner of Lonsdale Street and Spencer Streets is finally being demolished and has always been a popular photographic subject since it was built in the 1890s.
It was shut down in 1982 and has been derelict since then.
These pipes are near the Southside site entrance off Little Bourke Street.
Incidentally, the "GNDN (GOES NOWHERE, DOES NOTHING)" designation featured on interesting set details in the Classic Star Trek series.
Production design would stencil it on pipework and cables, usually with a string of random numbers before or after it.
But y'know, these things must have once had uses, and inspired by the commentators below I'm happy to speculate about a few....
-Shower heads for washing coal trucks under.
-Failed attempts during WW2 to infiltrate the power station using Japanese midgets submarines via the river outfall pipe left these broken periscopes behind as military trophies.
-Header pipes for the city's hydraulic power system (documented elsewhere in my photostream).
-Emergency steam jet rocket engines designed to lift the entire power station up and away from the city in the event of an imminent boiler breach and catastrophic steam explosion.
-Giant bubble producing machines designed to create mirth and merriment in the streets of Melbourne during festivals and holidays. Trained Blue Heeler and Australian Sheep Dog Bubble Wranglers would herd the bubble stream down the streets into the Central Business District. The soapy mixture was filtered through strips of bacon to flavour it and make it more attractive to the dogs.
-Emergency beer sluices to sustain the journalists on hot days from the nearby Melbourne Age building on their way down to City's more conventional watering holes.
Well I got back from Africa last Wednesday, worked 18 hours on Thursday and then headed to Yosemite on Friday for the weekend. I'm having a blast but my body isn't too happy with me right now.
This is a night shot of a moonbow at Lower Yosemite Falls. A moonbow (also known as a lunar rainbow, lunar bow) is a rainbow produced by light reflected off the surface of the moon rather than from direct sunlight. Moonbows are relatively faint, due to the smaller amount of light reflected from the surface of the moon. They are always in the opposite part of the sky from the moon. It is difficult for the human eye to discern colors in a moonbow because the light is usually too faint to excite the cone color receptors in human eyes. As a result, they often appear to be white. However, the colors in a moonbow do appear in long exposure photographs.
The conditions are right this week in Yosemite for moonbows, however, after some pizza and beer on Saturday night, it was looking like I wasn't going to get to see one because the sky was so overcast. I got ready for bed and I took one last look out the window around 10pm when I noticed it was starting to clear. I grabbed my camera and started running up the mountain in the dark. The wind and spray from the falls was powerful and in my haste to get up the mountain I didn't grab anything to wipe off my lens. I knew I only had two shots to get the elusive rainbow (one with the UV filter on and one the filter off). After that my lens would be so wet the shots would not come out. I took my best guess at the exposure and pointed my camera right into the spray. This was my second (and last) shot of the night and after that I just stood in the misty spray and enjoyed natures show. If you look close you can see the very faint second rainbow above the colorful one. It was very cool!
I guess I should take a look at my photos from Africa now...
