Australian (not so) Open

Thursday, January 22nd, 2004 at 2223

Yesterday (22nd?) we went to the Australian Open for a day of tennis-watching. Great I thought, I’ll pack my big lens and get some photos of the players! Hurrah! Sadly, not so. I managed to get a few shots but then facist bastards security haulled me out of one of the courts and told me that the lens I was using was too big. Considering I only had a wideangle on me as an alternative, this really shot my mood through the head. Not only that, but the fact that 1000001 people out there were using compact digicams with much greater effective focal lengths than my lens such as this, this and this. Bloody ignorant security monkies, they really don’t have a clue. I even saw oen guy using a digital camcorder that I *know* to have a 40x zoom on it. Complete idiots. Not only this, but when I got home and tried to connect up my 80gb HDD to the local home computer, it got totally fried and all the data on it was destroyed, leaving me with no movies here in Oz, and also no way of getting my data back home unless I’m incredibly lucky in the coming days. THANKYOU Australian Open Security for ruining my day, I hate you all.

I’ll be posting the few shots that I did get soon, keep watching this space. I might even print a few out and go throw them at the security guards from over the fence, just to spite the ignorant muppets.
