Travelled to Canberra this weekend to see my wife Natalie dance in a show, which was great. Arrived after the seven hour drive from Melbourne at the venue to find a metal kid, an 80’s thrash kid and a skin head kid drinking beer together directly in front of where I parked. I looked around thinking there must have been a photo shoot taking place or a film being made near by. These kids were styled so perfectly. Got to love Canberra!

    You’ve got be kidding. Great shots. Great styling. Yeah, are you sure Gus Van Sant was hiding in a bush shooting you shooting them ?

    I honestly looked around thinking there was a crew somewhere nearby. But perhaps it was the way they were pegging rocks at the swans in the lake that made me ultimately think the kids were just being kids.

    I went to school with those guys, I’m sure. Princes Hill High, 1987.

    Were you are Metal Head or a Skin Head? I could see you either way Matt!

    “You know the finger.”
    “Yes, I know the finger, Goose.”
    “I’m sorry. I hate it when it does that.”

    I forgot to mention that these photos are unbelievable. This is why I love Canberra as much now as I hated it when I was a kid.

    Hey Alice… I thought your quote was from Romper Stomper… but Top Gun is so similar you can forgive me…!

    And Rhys, there were some other kids I found on the weekend smoking juice bottle bongs in the back seat of a car parked in the suburban back streets of Queenbeyan… but thats another post altogether ; )

    Terrific shots. Seems like they were almost waiting for just you to turn up with your camera. Maybe they’ve been waiting since ’85.

    I should have posted a quote from Romper Stomper!
