Photographer's Note

A bit of a change for me, and the first shot I've uploaded from my new toy, the Olympus OM-D.

The title could apply to the men, by the look of them - and the sound, definitely the musicianship - but comes from the name of the song they were belting out on the balcony of the Town Hall Hotel during last Sunday's 'Spring Fling'. It's an annual Spring festival held in the main street of North Melbourne, where I live. The street is closed off, the trams which go down the middle are diverted to another route, and much eating, drinking and carousing is enjoyed while the local traders flog their wares from stalls, and loud bands compete with each other from the hotel and stages set up at each end of the 300 metre section of street.

The Town Hall Hotel maintains itself with determination as 'grungy'
- slightly shabby, down-at-heel, rough at the edges - with music and patrons to match the patina of grunge.

I don't even know the name of the band, but I can tell you the singer looked like a worn-out individual with a voice to match; surely one of yesterday's heroes.

More shots to be posted in the WS.
