Big wheel


I am not sure what Melbourne is to call this oversized ferris wheel being constructed at Docklands. The Eye is not very original. I understand that it will be three metres smaller than the London Eye, but still, it will be very large. I will wait a good time before going for a ride. I let them sort the bugs out first. I don't want to crash to earth in a capsule.

This was the only photo I took at Docklands last Sunday. It is looking between one of the original Docklands residential buildings and one completed only last year.

  1. Looks like one of those weed plants from our where I grew up..you know, the one you blow all the fluffy stuff off of and then you chase it in the wind? He loves me He loves me not flowers we called them. Anyway..the kids wanted to go on this..but I fear it will cost the Earth.

  3. Dandelions I think Cazzie, also called fairy something. I think the ride fee will be $30 adult.

    Whirlee gig we called them Denys. Hope it does not spin like that.

  6. I bet it won't grow at the pace weeks grow Keshi.

    SSOW for short Ben. Nice. Too long for a name and unpleasant as an acronym. It will colloquially be known as 'the wheel' or the 'big wheel'. I hope not 'the eye'.

  7. You'd think that all those "Me First! Gotta Be There" people would have been killed over the years, given the ratio of bugs to successes. I was secretly hoping for a Krispy Kreme issue, but alas, no gold. Waiting until the crowds die down is always a winning philosophy...except when you're escaping Hanoi.

  8. The fat and sugar laden Krispy Kreme bug will take quite a few years to show itself.

    I would have stayed in Hanoi and gone over to the side. Much more fun.

  10. Nice composition, Andrew. Pardon me, but the building on the right seems to be looking lustfully at the building on the left. That could be a pinwheel in the middle too.

  11. So we hear Keshi. German tourists mistaken as Bader Meinhoff members.

    I see what you mean Lad. Leering even.
