Mysteries In The Sky

Yum yum…. 3:11pm.

Wednesday July 8, 2009
Coming home tonight Hayley spotted a trail of smoke falling from the sky as we went through Emerald. We pulled into the oval near the high school and I got this photo (it’s average, I know, but it was a 15 second exposure and my hands just aren’t that steady). Hard to see but it’s pretty much right in the middle… 6:33pm.

IMG_3901

Then when I got to my house, there was a plane flying directly overhead. I jumped the fence into the paddock to get a beter look at the smoke and moon, and by the time I got a decent view, the plane flying over had reached the smoke – and started another trail!! I ran back inside to get my tripod and took the following snaps.

6:51pm.

IMG_3902

6:54pm.

IMG_3904

In this one you can see the two separate trails – one starts at the very top of the photo, the other a bit lower (the higher one was the more recent). 6:56pm.

IMG_3907

Same pic with higher ISO. 6:57pm.

Theories welcome.

Late Lunch

Every morning my train goes over this drain and when it’s been raining, it floods. Once it drains there are always ducks hanging out in there. I was in Bayswater and walking by so I went down there. Yay. 4:50pm.

I got into work this morning and found this sitting on our sandwich grill. 8:51am.

Untitled.
Copic on photocopy paper.

We had to leave work early this day because the dudes working upstairs had been painting and the fumes were coming through and choking us up hardcore. I thought I’d draw a diagram just so people could understand without having to read.

Cheryl.
Charcoal on some sort of thin watercolour paper.

Another post-work/pre-gig piece with ouzo for inspiration. Not sure how happy I am with this one, I did it too big. I started re-drawing it smaller, but couldn’t be fucked so I just went with the original.

Cock in a box. 12:22pm.

IMG_3774

Finger mould. 4:10pm.

IMG_3777

I think this was a rat. I had to take the photo in darkness, so it was hard to get up close with the flash going off… this was taken from a distance and cropped to size for maximum flatness. Somewhere behind the Thai restaurant and Subway in Belgrave. 6:08pm.

Sunday May 17, 2009
Some trees that got burnt in the recent bushfires in Healesville. We were in the area for Dad’s birthday and my Aunt used to live up this road. 1:57pm.

IMG_3789

Mushrooms. 4:12pm.

IMG_3810

Another mushroom. If you look closely you can see the microcosmos enjoying themselves on the underside. 4:57pm.

IMG_3818

I couldn’t find the name of this fungus but they’re these little pod things, and when you poke them they shoot out a cloud of spores. It’s amazing. Spore close-up in the second pic. 5:30pm.

An old Copic ink at work that someone had opened and spilt. Not sure how long ago that happened, but it made the sticker look pretty cool. 4:49pm.

Wednesday May 27, 2009
The battery in my iRiver had carked it, so I had to order a new one from Hong Kong and replace it. This is how much effort it required!! Pretty interesting to see the insides of it though. 8:50pm.

I’m Your Man

Posted by KingBean on June 8, 2009 4:30 pm

For about a week, there was this dude who was sitting out the front of work every morning having a coffee and a smoke. At first I thought he was an early customer, but he never came in, and after being there every day for a week, he just stopped being there. Strange. I took some photos of him.

He first appeared on Thursday the 16th, and again the next day. I was late on Wednesday the 22nd, but Jarryd said he was there. The next week, he was gone.

Tonight we went out to the city for Sam’s birthday. We drank beforehand and then caught a train in. We had to take a piss stop at Ringwood. Jordan needed to go so bad he couldn’t even stand up. Haha. 7:15pm.

Untitled Entry I

Posted by KingBean on May 13, 2009 9:57 pm

I thought that I would be clever and make the title of each entry on here a song title that somehow related to the content of the post, but it’s proving too difficult.

Also I decided I’d start posting more than just ‘photos’ here, and start posting photos of drawings as well. Possibly other things will follow (videos?). For now….

Wednesday April 8, 2009
Rachel Williams.
Charcoal on some sort of thin watercolour paper.

Drawn from a newspaper photo. I did this after work one evening drinking Wild Turkey and heading out to a Red Paintings gig. Photo taken two days later (on the Friday).

Rachel Williams, 91, was brutally bashed in her bed by John Andrew Kelsen, who had broken into her Broadmeadows home for the sixth time.

She died a month later as Kelsen continued to break into the homes of elderly people in the area.

Leatherface.
Charcoal on some sort of thin watercolour paper.

I was going to a gig after work this night (RCKTSRGRY) and had a couple of hours to kill, so I spent it drinking ouzo and drawing this. Wasn’t sure what to draw but I had this stuck up near the phone so I went with it.

“You got one choice, boy. Sex or the saw. Sex is.. well… nobody knows… But the saw…. The saw is family!”

Deflowering

Posted by KingBean on March 31, 2009 9:22 pm

Okay so I don’t really like the whole ‘blog’ craze but I wanted somewhere to post photos I take regularly, and this seemed like the best way to do it. Blabbing will be kept to a minimum. Most likely just one sentence per photo.

Anyway, this is the first post so here’s a bunch of photos from the month of March 2009. In future I’ll probably not post so many photos at once.

Wednesday March 11, 2009
The sun going down over the CBD, from Richmond station. 7:24pm.

Saturday March 14, 2009
A few people I was waiting with for a train home from Parliament station, delayed by 20 minutes due to vandalism. Sick. 12:17am.

Sunday March 29, 2009
Hayley typing. 1:15pm.

A mysterious splattering of blood at Shiprock Falls, Gembrook. 2:23pm.
img_3640

A dead rabbit that had wasps coming in and out of its eye socket. Sweet. It was about 50-odd metres from the above blood. 2:26pm.
img_3641

Coprinopsis atramentaria (ink cap). Gilwell Park, Gembrook. 3:42pm.

“It is a widespread fungus and eaten, though it is poisonous when consumed with alcohol – hence another common name, Tippler’s Bane. The black liquid that this mushroom releases after being picked was once used as ink.” How interesting.

We had earlier driven past one that was on a stalk a good 20cm high.

Got into work and this had to greet me. Nothing got pinched thankfully but it was a pain in the arse. 8:40am.
