Couple of shots from my hunt for the current Panachallenge on 'Glass'.

There is an old rail bridge in Melbourne (Sandridge Bridge) that has a series of glass panels dedicated to the many migrants making up Melbourne's population. Thought that would be a good start. But the bloody vandals got there before me


hard to read the info


and the city looks strange


Off I went, the vandals had been taking the same path. They had burnt down an old signal box next to Flinders St station, but a bit of rain and sun means life returns....


Went up the glass walkways towards some artwork


but when I came back it was gone....bloody vandals have become art thieves.....


Not sure if these blokes were responsible for the mayhem but I though I'd take a shot as I went down the escalator just in case.....


Well no nice glass shots yet, but a pleasant couple of days looking

I like the first and third but would crop off the bottom showing the impact point that shattered the glass. The first looks like a flight of birds.

Thanks Tony. I find the panachallenge process a great way to think about photo taking. It forces you to do things you may not have done normally.

Thanks Ted, thought about that. I was actually trying to get the anger of what I felt seeing this stuff vandalized, but you are right I did not get it and therefore the impact point just gets in the way of the pic.

Nice shots Rafael, but at the same time saddening to see the pointless damage some people do to property. I like Ted`s analogy of shot 1, it really does look like a dense flock of birds in the air. All nicely taken as always, well done Raf , good luck with the panachallenge

I also like the shattered glass shots, agree about #1, 2 & 3 are also nice. # 4 is also very well done. It seems that no one is exempt from vandals. I often noticed how fast an empty or isolated building can become an eyesore. Seems that the first thing to go is always the glass.

They are nice shots although rather sad. Those blokes; you should give that picture to the police, they are probably the ones from the look of them.

Thanks Mark,Jerry and Steve. Get so angry with vandalism, my blood pressure would not look good.

I feel the same way, Rafe — have been on the receiving end of plate glass vandals (plus graffiti "artists" and other assorted ruffians) myself.

And if you make the glass stronger they just bring a bigger hammer...

I do like your continuing series of local photo's — can't walk enough to do much of it any more.
