Haha, that's pretty funny. Now if only someone happened to dump a large pile of dirt somewhere near EWR, I'd be set.  Wink

Why grab a Heine when you can grab a Busch?

There was a guy with a video camera setup on a tripod on top of that pile of gravel several Sunday's ago! May it stay there for as long as possible. Climbing it is a bit of an effort though - you need a bit of a run up!

It'd be nice if they could drop one of those off in DEN. O wait, we have a huge one... They closed it  Sad

Oh c'mon Alan, you enjoyed yourself running down that thing.
I could almost hear you say "Again, again!"

Hi All,

I took Simon Gregory (UK) to the mound last night to show him around. I couldn't help but notice the new mounds of dirt everywhere.... awesome!

Sam Chui and I spent the past long weekend shooting in Hong Kong and Taiwan, so no time spent on the mound for a while. I'll be there this weekend.

While these photos were being taken, I was probably running around in a TPE/CKS storm water drain with floating dead pigs and chickens, looking for a wide angle lens I'd dropped. Bugger!
My wide angle lens now lives under the runway at Taipei.....

After this experience, it will be great to get back to shooting in Sydney.



Respected users.... If my replies are useful, then by all means...

Hi Goran,

Seems we've always been "nearly" bumping into each other. Have you been trying to contact me via email?

Hi Glenn
Yes, sent an email and a private message also. Sam (Very cool guy) told me sometimes the private messages don't go through for some reason and the emails to the screeners email get lost also.
