Eastlink at night and a bridge removal

Sunday, January 18th, 2009 at 4:34 pm

Last night Damien and I spent a few hours taking photos from various places around Eastlink before heading over to East Malvern where they had shut down the freeway to remove the pedestrian over-bridge. I have just finished uploading a selection of the photos to Flickr and here are some of them:

I also uploaded a couple of other recent(ish) photos:

  1. Holy crap Stephen. They are sensational photos. Except the last one, I’m a little traumatised now :-) (No offence Alfie)
