A couple of weeks back when Melbourne was in a grip of 'when the $#@! will summer start' syndrome I was commissioned to shoot construction works in the wee small hours of the night. It was cold, wet and windy and I wasn't particularly excited by the prospects of hanging out on the Western Ring Road on a Friday night. As they say however you've gotta suffer for your art and suffer i did. With my rain covers on my camera and myself and being careful not to point my camera in the direction of the horizontal rain I toughed it out managing to pull off some speccy backlit images.
