Dangerous Designs Entry

Chinese contingent 1.

Chinese Contingent 2.  Who is the ringin, 3rd from left?



Hi, as I wrote quite a few posts ago, part of the reason for building my newest timber trike was to enter the Dangerous Designs competition.  My entry is now in! As well as building the trike itself, a few nice photos and a video were needed.  Some of the photos were taken at the local park, but I wanted to include a few photos of riding on the trike too.  My son, Ewan works at Melbourne Uni, so I arranged to meet him there for a photoshoot.  Its very hard to get your head around the workings of a vuong trike but dynamic photos and videos can help a lot.

So I pootled in on a Thursday morning, making sure timber panels were in place for the timber design competition.  On arriving at Melbourne Uni, I was swamped by a Chinese tour group of some description and they insisted on posing for photos with the trike.  I got them to take a few photos of me too.  The photos with the chinese contingent did not make the cut for the Dangerous Designs comp though, it is actually worth being serious about these things!

Then I rang Ewan, and got him to bring his helmet along as my helmets are too geeky to be seen in respectable photos.

The filming went ok, thanks Ewan!  Here is a link to the video.  Another competition / exhibition I have now entered is Fringe Furniture, my timber trike will be there on display from September 14 to October 1.
