    Would love to do a shoot in one, but I'm not aware of any. Expanding my work to include portraits/fashion and trying to find some cool locations. I'm located in Victoria.

    I'm in VIC, thanks for the heads up. Where abouts is it? Is it a public place (I.E would I need a permit to shoot a model there)?

    your guess is as good as mine! I only knew this from the news (I think it was on last week)

    If I get a chance, I will try and do a drive by tomorrow.

    Right next to the train line, where the motorway crosses above (if it's where I'm thinking) massive billboard overlooking it and some run-down warehouse type places.

    Heh. I go past this every day on the train and was going to mention it. Anyway.. If you haven't been yet, they look like they are starting to die off. I did see someone out there yesterday late afternoon with their lightbox out in the field though so maybe all is not lost.

    Cheers to the guys posting the links. Interesting and essentially sums up what I was thinking when I first saw the flowers appearing: "I bet its some bloody art students". Hah!

    there's a big field of flowers next to Birrarung Marr, right next to the Exhibition St extension. Looks very good at the moment.
