Bjarki and Naes' Incredible Numerical Challenge (Part 6)

It's time to get mathematically challenging once more on the Other Side! For those who have tuned in late, the Incredible Numerical Challenge is about taking photos of numbers (or things that represent them) in the everyday. Numero 5 was a little on the industrial side, number 6 goes back to nature, nestled amongst the banksia.

Take a stroll down one of the many laneways in Melbourne to Hell's.
Drink of the Mountain Goat, tell your tale and watch as the city crawls by.

The Next

Thought i'd reintroduce myself with a slightly updated self portrait. As you can see, in my time away i've developed a keen interest in baseball and mobile phones. I have also changed shampoos and the result is soft, luxuriant growth..

After six months in the wilderness..I'm back!! Oh yeaaa!

This church window in Húsafellskirkja makes an ironic but also very appropriate location for this mass grave of dead flies.

Picture taken through the window of my apartment. This cat and another cat take turns in guarding my window and make sure that no other cats are nosing about. Looks like I caught him off guard!

When you are outside you want to be inside and vice versa. This is a helicopter from the Icelandic Coast Guard, Icelandic Coat of Arms decorates this emergency exit.

Post(card) History: Episode 3

Welcome to Adelaide, South Australia. If you always wondered what a bus looks like in Adelaide, this one's for you.

Adelaide History is littered with firsts, including:

1854: First public animal-powered railway in Australia opened, between Goolwa and Port Elliot.

1867: First croquet club in Australia formed at Kapunda.

1891:Cremation was legalized, an Australian first.

1938:The first talking fire alarm in the world was installed at Woodville.

A talking fire alarm yesterday.

At the Melbourne Design Market held on the weekend there were many beautiful and clever items and ideas available to buy. This yellow arrow, however, was by far the most interesting thing there. Alas, it was not for sale.

This scenario is quite un-Icelandic; Sales are on, no-one is shopping and the sun is shining.

Its time to kick this challenge to a new level, a little bit more ambiguous but if you are smart then you can work it out.

...all the egg layin´ creatures left Iceland last autumn and havent arrived yet for the summer (if they are smart enough!)

..and i couldn't resist adding this bus-sign and lamppost snuggling up against each other in the cold.

Bjarki and Naes' Incredible Numerical Challenge (Part 1)

I actually struggled a bit with this 1. I had this idea of shaping the number 1 using snow on a dark background, but there was no snow for some time, and spring was pretty much around the corner. Then to my surprise and joy, the snow arrived. In the end i liked this version better (slightly photoshopped to fit the brief):

...but to give my original idea justice...

Driving on the Other Side

A few random shots from my travels round the country way back in 2001, involving a lot of driving. 18000 Kilometres yo be exact. Cheating maybe but these pics have been in the shoebox since then and when they heard we were doin a driving article, wouldn't stop nagging.

'are we there yet?...are we there yet?'

Driving at the top of the world

Driving is always an adventure in Iceland, especially when you drive past such nicely shaped piles of snow...mmmmmmm....

Post(card) History: Episode 2

As you might notice, this is the 'popular' bowling green in sunny Mildura, about 4 hours north west of Melbourne. The town's 'unpopular' bowling green, located across the tracks on the the other side of town, recently raised their beer prices by 20 cents.

There seems to be some debate about the highest recorded temperature in Mildura, with 47.2 degrees celsius recorded on January 10, 1939. It might have reached 50.8 degrees once but no one there can tell me exactly when. Seems they were all at the popular bowling green knocking back some cheap beers..

Bjarki and Naes' Incredible Numerical Challenge (Part 0)

It's time to get all Mathematical on ya 'ere at the Exchange. The object of the Incredible Numerical Challenge (INC) is pretty straightforward; take a photo of an actual number or something representing that number, starting at the beginning and ascending in order until the marvellous and wondrous end of the universe! (or we get bored)
So without further crapping on, I present thee.. Zero! (Some might say that Zero is not actually a number, but I say let's get naughty!) Over to you up there bro..
