Image:1 day, 11 hours and 34 minutes later, someone got shot here

Last Sunday we walked to the MacRobertson bridge, a pretty long 15km round trip. At 2:35pm on Sunday I was next to the St Catherine's Boathouse and took the photo above. Right next door is the Wesley Boathouse (below).

It was a little disconcerting to hear on the news tonight that somebody had been shot just next to this electricity tower (and just on the other side of Wesley Boathouse from the shot below) at 2am last night.

See the story (and the electricity tower) in The Age's video story about the shooting here.

I hasten to stress that, 1 day, 11 hours and 34 minutes before the incident, I didn't see anything suspicious, and I didn't capture anybody in a photograph.  
So I can't help the police with their enquiries, and drug dealers don't need to worry about me.

Back in May during our first attempt at this round trip walk, Dennis got tired before I did. This time around the months he has spent on his exercise program meant that he was powering ahead of me at the end of the walk. I had a bit of an excuse for falling behind: I took more photographs. But that's a rationalisation. To make things worse, he has now lifted his exercise program even further: today, in addition to his daily walks to or from work and his regular exercise sessions, he added a lunch time walk. If this keeps happening, I might need to raise the stakes by attempting to jog around the Tan rather than power walking. (Dennis seems to be gaining more stamina, but I think I can still run further than he can.) Although, come to think of it, jogging might end as an embarrassing failure.
