Working Down T' Pit
The photograph shows the compound at the Cypress Lakes Resort where two members of the CE staff are currently being held. They were transported here in the darkness by a Qantas jet and in the morning by a Jetstar jet and in the afternoon by a rickety bus. It's like taking stray cats into the bush - far enough away and they won't find their way home.
The AIPP Event is being held here and we are going to attend and represent the shop. As there are other Western Australians here, there may be some survivors to carry news home to our families - the Hunter valley is apparently rife with wineries and one is liable to be attacked at any time.
There are also two weddings being held at this resort today - one seems to feature people from India and the sari dresses are nothing short of magnificent - they put the average pastels that we see at WA weddings to shame!
I've just had a good thought - I am going to suggest that as there are probably hundreds of professional photographers here from the AIPP this weekend, that we all gang up and descend on the bridal party en masse and photograph them until they call the police. It might be a little difficult for the architectural photographers but we can erect a scaffold opposite the bridal table or get them up on a HIAB cherry picker. Nothing stops a good shot.
Must go now - I've got trouble to cause...
