OK Interwebs, here's a bit of an off the wall question.

Is it possible for a member of the public to drive the circumference of the LHC?

That is, is there a publicly accessible ring road around the outside of the site?

And I'm caught up with my public reshares of my #wpp2016 work.

A long exposure HDR at Sculptures by the Sea, at Cottesloe Beach, with Alicia Smith​​ modelling as the protagonist in a speculative fiction trilogy. I don't know what it is called, or what it is about, but I've got a cover for it!

Very heavy processing in Google Photos and Snapseed to create an acrylic painting effect.

SooC with Alicia Smith​'s 60mm macro lens, this is some of Simmo's signature cinnamon ginger ice cream, with nuts and slowly flowing chocolate sauce.

If you are not in W.A., Simmo's Ice Cream is a Mandurah institution, and totally delicious. We are blessed with three master frozen dessert manufacturers here, the other two being Gusto Gelato in Leederville, and Miller's Ice Cream in Cowaramump. Please don't ask me to choose!

NX-1, 18-55 zoom, LED ringlight, LED desklamp, and tripod.

The NX-1 has a neat inbuilt intervalometer, capable of a huge range of frame counts and intervals - up to 10000 frames and 9 day intervals. Very handy.

"Petition to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and all Australian Politicians:

Nima and Ashkan are a gay couple who come from Iran, where being gay can cost you your life. They sought asylum in Australia, but were sent to detention in Nauru, where being gay is also a crime. They've been attacked and beaten, just for being in love.

This kind of treatment is inhumane and unnecessary. Please bring Nima and Ashkan to safety in Australia and halt your cruel detention process. 

Sign the Petition:

Today, in Australia, the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters reported to the Parliament with its recommendations. As well as agreeing that we must proceed with the proposed reform to make Senate voting ‘above the line’ more democratic, the committee  also called for ‘below the line preferential voting’ reform.

On March 2 the government agreed to support this reform.

While http://belowtheline.org.au/ has been extremely helpful in assisting those of us who really want to know where our vote's going,  this is going to appeal to the other 97% who find the below the line tablecloth ballot paper too much. 12 boxes aren't so much.
