Looks to be a great night! Sunset is at 6:59 pm. So meet around 6.30 for the sunset. Also hang around for some night shots and to see if Steve blows himself up... ;-)

I just checked the forecast and the showers during the week will have cleared.

I missed the last one and ended up playing by myself further up the river. This time if I don't get lost I will be there. I still can't believe that I could not get the PIP page on my iPhone so with out that I was lost. This time i will print out the directions. Paper never crashes.
jasonbyway 7 years ago
Hey Chris,

Yuu can view the PIP page on the Iphone. Just go to Flickr on Safari and then at the bottom click on the link (can't remember the name) that will take you to the full site. From there you can login and browse through to the PIP discussion page. I use it all the time and you can even post to the discussions etc. After I bypassed the Flickr Mobile redirection I just put a bookmark in to save it for next time.

@jasonhbyway. Normally I have no problems with flickr on my iphone, but this time around I could not even get Google to get me where I wanted to be. All I can conclude is that I was not suppose to make that shoot. This current shoot I will only miss if I am sick, broken or broken down.

Bobbi-lee it might be an idea to park at Raffles and walk from there, not so bad and you'll only have Canning Bridge to navigate.

Be warned: This thread was anonymously bumped and the post deleted several times yesterday and again throughout the night. If it is bumped again without adding to it, I will close or delete the discussion. Don't make people open a discussion expecting something new, only to find nothing added. That is very childish and lame.

Hi Lo-fi

Whats /popcorn mean?

PuddleBoat 7 years ago
Perthling. I am sorry that you feel so strongly.

From my own experience in other social groups it is often best to organise activities with the intention of going regardless of anyone elses interest. At the end of the day if no-one shows interest it doesn't affect your plans in anyway. From what I have seen of other PIP meets there is often more people show up than reflected in the relevant thread.

IMO Brett was reasonable in his request and you would only have needed to add a post to say "bump" and aleviate all this angst.

I enjoy nite shoots even though I have only had the opportunity to make it to one PIP nite shoot (como jetty) I have always been dissapointed for the ones I can't make it to.

I hope that you can remember how much fun photography is for you and still come out this Sat nite.

I will still be there.

jeremyjhall PRO 7 years ago
/popcorn means I'm getting the popcorn out, ready to enjoy the spectacle of unfolding drama..

FWIW I think that bumping is understandable, but also a bit annoying. I think that one of the admins should have politely requested that the bumping stop, and the bumper should respect this.

Perthling. I know it must seem like a thankless task but I'm sure those who have registered interest (and those who wanted to come but can't make it) do very much appreciate it.
Daniel W. Laidlow 7 years ago
@Perthling

I dont think Brett was out of line in his request, why are you taking it so personally? It can be very frustrating at times to open threads again and again because they are at the top of the discussions only to find they've been invisi-bumped... Once every now and again is okay but I think its a bit silly to do it again and again over the course of an evening.

So are the 8 original "yeses" still going or am I likely to look like some weirdo stalker in the dark in front of a child based recreation facility with my camera ?
larry193 7 years ago
Someone decided to drive their fu*)ing car into the back of mine last wednesday at 100km/h. So I turned into a 50/50 anyway.

Oh and i think bumping things like this is fine as it keeps the community active...

side note: not that you care Perthling but i appreciate any effort people put in. Regardless if i go or not i think it's a great thing.

God i feel like OJ

picturesbysteve PRO 7 years ago
I'm with Brett on this about the bumping. I have also popped in and opened this thread to find the last post was many hours previous and yes, I find it very annoying. Just a note saying "any one else coming" or the likes would be better.

As for the effort to organize this, I say thanks as well. The group is all about anybody being able to organise a meet up and anybody being able to attend.
I don't organise meet ups though, as I quite often have my plans changed last minute :(

I was intending to go but quite frankly, apart from me looking forward to lighting up the whole area with steel wool sparks, I've sort of lost the desire now. Go Figure?

Also... if this is still on can someone repost the details here or in a new thread? I didn't really pay attention to the where, only the when.

I need to know where and when too, so I can make sure I am there to video Steve setting himself on fire with the steel wool.

Yes, beer... some things never change. LOL!

So was it an admin who deleted nathankrisko |carlisleprinting's post in support for Perthling; or self censorship for fear of offending the mighty powers that be?

It's like a bloody kindergarten here sometimes. Who really cares if the thread got bumped, at least it was about going out and taking photographs for once.

Yes delete it and go back to good old OT stuff

julesfotos.com 7 years ago
There's no point in deleting posts just because they offered a contrary opinion. It just makes some look bad, when they're not and embitters others who feel that they're being censored or dealt with unfairly.

Just get back on topic. Pip used to be about community, going out and sharing ideas, skills and doing stuff together (for free). Somewhere along the line it has seemed to have started to take a different direction.... anyway, now I am rambling off topic.

Perthling's idea is good, isn't going to cost you a cent to participate (apart from petrol, parking and maybe food or beer afterwards) and you may learn something or at the very least have a good time with like minded weirdoes. So, if you're interested let him know.
Chris J. Bartle PRO 7 years ago

Perthling is now not a member on flickr...and I missed the posts too...



So is this still on? I'm confused-also is this a sunset shoot or a night shoot? I'm in for sunset-not really for night as I have a baby...

I'm all for the original location though, we went there last weekend and I actually made it over the bridge without screaming and or dying LOL albeit being totally scared shitless
Chris J. Bartle PRO 7 years ago
@ Larry. If you live anywhere between Rockingham and South Perth I will more than happily swing by and pick you up on the way through and I am certain that there are PIPsters with the old spirit that would do the same from the North if your from that end of town. Post your suburb and see how this community handles it. I think you would be happily surprised. That of course is if this is still on.
