    Thanks people!

    I will. At the time I left (about 10.30pm) it felt more like a festival than a protest. Here was a lot of music, dancing, drink and singing, and generally the vibe was very positive. A lot of the police were chatting with demonstrators and seemed fairly tolerant of the odd drunk idiot. I don't know how it went later on though...

    Killer set Nick. Wonderfull stuff.

    5 and 10 are excellent as is 12 with the cop resting on his riot shield, he looks lost in concern.

    I've been reading The Age and SMH online over here and the articles they've published seem to be a pretty random snippet of what's actually happening, not to mention they're usually a couple of days out of date... I don't know if the rest of the Oz media is the same.

    I love the international nature of this community. Being able to interact with the eyes behind the camera is wonderful.

    Very brave of you to go out there with your Nokton. I'm afraid to buy one because I feel I'd be anxious about taking it out.

    Haha between Taksim and the Tassie wilderness, I can't say I've been precious with the Nokton... It takes like a champ though :smile:
