    So, I just happened to be at Fed Square tonight and yes, there are a small set of steps to the right of the Visitor Centre, and a larger set of steps to the left of the visitor centre as you face it. So let's try to meet near the larger set of steps at 11.

    Thanks to all for an enjoyable day.
    Blokeman, we couldn't find you and couldn't contact you.
    Marc, thanks for posting Christine's pics. That shot of the four of us is quite good. The people coming into the frame direct your gaze, and those crazy jumping guys are even included.
    Gary, great effort on riding a bicycle all the way from Geelong.

    Post Script: APUG Melbourne meeting on Saturday

    Alrighty then...
    Here is the link to my JALBUM of the day's proceedings.

    What a fabulous day out. Pity it costs $9.80 for a ham roll (with no butter!!!) and orange juice! Ugh—!

    Those "crazy jumping guys"... that stuff has a name... an extreme sport of jumping from one structure to the next (there have been fatalities in the past).

    I am surprised nobody to my knowledge was using colour film; I personally I reserve the use of B&W for suitably 'monochromatic toned' scenes, of which Michael had several very good shots printed (granite, waterfall, misty/rain-spattered lens views...).

    Hang on Kev (whichever one you were I forget)... No, no, I did not ride the bike all the way from Geelong (that is reserved for the road bike, which can get me up there in 4 hr 50 minutes average). 'Daisy' and I caught the train up and back, sharing 9 Bombardier carriages coming home with thousands of hyperexcited North Melbourne fans. As we touring cyclists say after a satisfying ride, "Bloody Good Tour!".

    Gary, thanks for posting those snaps. I was the one with the grey Coopers cap and the black Ilford Photo rugby jumper.

    Thats a great turn up of gear you guys had. Wish that sort of thing went on in Sydney. Without starting a Melbourne vs Sydney debate there seems to be many more active/social photgraphers in Melbourne (purely based on observations via various forums and Flickr)

    Well, we COULD have a Melbourne v Sydney debate. Just kidding. I'm not going to denigrate our northern friends. They do seem to have occasional gatherings. We do probably get together a bit more often.
    You are right about the gear though. We had everything from a Pentax 110 all the way up to a Tachihara 8 X 10, with a few other things in between.
