Default WTF ? Yarra trail (Melb)

When you think you've seen it all. About 9:15 am on the Yarra trail, just
passed St Kevins (where it runs along the road) 6-7 shivering (the clock on
the silo said 8 (not 11) degrees) slim, model like teenage girls wrapped in
blankets and make up, standing next to a photographer, setting up his stuff.
A very ugly spot for a photo shot IMO. Couldn't stop as I was very very
late for work, but any body come past later and see WTF they were actually
doing ?

Actually, what I am really asking is, what was under the blankets, and
should of I stopped.............

It would have been better to dramatically fall off you bike and pretend
to go into shock. I'm sure a few blankets might have sufficed to keep
you warm. Then reel off a few lines such as "Am I in heaven? Are you
angels?" ... always worth a try, and worth being late to work for!

Jesus H. Christ on a bike. I saw something very similar many years ago,
at night, up in the old Northcote Tip. Young model, couldn't tell if M
or F, amazing light setup, expensive camera gear , photographer etc.
Mentioned this to several friends. One suggested back maybe it was Bill
Henson doing a photo shoot. location, location, location.....

Nope, wrong on both attempts. Bill's a trendy arty-farty Australian
photographer. Check out the photo for the recent Nick Cave-Sydney
Dance Company collaboration "Underland".
