The Pow Wow Pond Ledges RollVic fundraiser was held down at Princes Park yesterday (another in Owen Parry’s line of World Mocking Series event names) and despite a gloomy looking Sunday (damn Melbourne) there was a great turnout. We also  learned about Danny’s frisbee skills, which happened to be aimed at Frenchman Zack DeBlaize for most of the day…

Finally got a chance to take some photos. Was good to get back into it and was the first outing since I got my camera back from repair. Owen should be doing a little writeup about the event shortly.

Thanks to Owen and RollVic for organising another chilled out event!

Update: The article’s been posted on emesce here.

What up? Timelapses..

Been awhile…

Unfortunately my Canon copped the Err 99 issue has been sent off for repairs – for the past 2-3 weeks now. Tried everything to no avail – Cleaning lens contacts, (insert some other internet DIY fix here) and no luck. I had an extended warranty and they’re honoring that so it should be back in my hands soon. During that time I got to play with a Canon 5D MkII and loved it.

Also I bought a house, so have been doing a ton of work on that which has been taking away from skating time. Last thing I did with my camera before it died was some timelapse experiments. Using my 40D tethered to my laptop with a program called DSLR Pro, captured one frame every 30 seconds most of the day..put together with Quicktime Pro and then compressed with Handbrake.

The Aussie Rolling Open is on this weekend in Adelaide, Will be keen to see what comes out of that event.

Update: Congrats to Danny Jensen for taking the title!

Upcoming: 2009 VIC Inline Titles

Keep an eye out next week for my photos/coverage from the VICTORIAN INLINE TITLES run by RollVic, taking place in Ballarat on the 28th of November 2009. I’ll be posting updates to our local Aussie Rolling source, EMESCE as well.

Apologies for the lack of updates during the past two weeks. The weather in Melbourne has been BLOODY HOT..and I hate skating in 35c weather.

Beer, shorts and a wifebeater is the way to be on a hot Melbourne day. Agree?
