So you know the weather is bad when the station floods.

It's only 15cm deep or so. Trains are out from Clifton Hill to Macleod.

Ingress Anomaly - Via Noir

The Melbourne site for +Ingress#Ingress #ViaNoir #Anomaly has wound up with the #enlightened beating the #resistance

These are the photos I got during the final hour and measurement. Plus a photo or two from the Resistance afterparty. (The enlightened didn't invite me sadface)

It's always fun to take part in an anomaly, and the energy from all of the players is wonderful to see. Both sides put in an incredible amount of effort and I wish i could have captured all the people who were involved behind the scenes as dispatch and Intel. It truly is a team game and an anomaly really reflects that.

If I got a shot of you during the day and you haven't seen it, drop me a message or comment and I'll find it for you.

Agent @Lockx signing off for the night. And for those of you who follow me for landscapes, I've got a backlog of images I'll be starting to post this week coming.

Ingress Anomaly - Via Noir

#ViaNoir #Ingress #Anomaly has just had its final measurement happen. I've not been keeping up with whether #resistance or #enlightened are winning/who won, but definitely has fun hanging with and chasing a bunch of people around.

The below photos come from between the first measurement until the 6pm measurement. I found various teams from both sides and witnessed key portals change hands plenty of times. There's a few more photos to come from up to the final measurement, where I finally found my nominal team again after embedding myself with a few other teams.

Ingress Anomaly Via Noir - Melbourne

So the #ViaNoir #anomaly for #Ingress in Melbourne is still going strong. The below are photos from after the group photo through until the first measurement. During this time the shards and clusters went live, and teams from both sides were deployed by their respective dispatchers. I jumped between a few teams and goal portals. I even found the team I'm nominally part of, well, until I deserted them for more photos.

You'll see photos of both #resistance and #enlightened including the enlightened on a confused mission where they went from attacking to retake their own goal portal to deciding to go and attack the nearby resistance one and then backtracking in the space of a few minutes. The resistance camping the enlightened goal. A defended but seemingly ignored by the other side portal, and various teams of both sides around the cbd.

More photos to come later on from further adventures to other clusters and sites after the first measurement.

Sometimes you just have have to sit back and watch the sunset. This may or may not be related to having a full memory card.

So then I took phone shots too.

Experiments in Composites

We should always strive to improve and create something new. One of those areas in which to experiment can be editing. I've been trying to push myself with seeing what I can create that uses imagination, combing different shots.

So the artwork attached here is a combination of two panoramas I've taken. I've got a really abstract piece that I've also created in a similar way, but that's not one that I want to post online. There's some things that are better seen in person and that creation definitely is one of them.

This however was just to see if I could. I think it somewhat works.

Yes. This is a composite of two different photos taken at different times and combined as an experiment.
