Filled with madness, pleasure, joy, fun and fantasy is a massive festival in Canada called Shambhala. People of all sorts sizes shapes and colours come out to play.

All day and all night under the trees, the moon’s, the stars and the sounds. The monsters within can roam freely and expressively and have fun.
From august 7th to august 10th this festival happens and will be a massive highlight of the year for all of those who are attending.


Mad Monster Party anyone?

Anyone for a mad monster party?

I can’t believe that it is May already, before we know it, it will be June, then July, August, September and then October.

And what happens in October?

You guessed it, the maddest monster party of all. Halloween. Where all the decorations, the costumes and of course, the tricks and treats come out to play. A time where people go wild with creativity, excitement, festivities and spirit. Especially when dressed as a ghost, you have lot’s of spirit then.

Until October however, we must have our own monster parties. But it may not have to be monster themed, it could be monstrous in size with 200 + people, monstrous in activities, monstrous in alcohol (be responsible) or monstrous and mad in other ways.

Monster wheels.

Monster wheels.

I think everyone would agree that a Hummer is somewhat a monster of a vehicle. It is after all a military vehicle initially designed to resist bullets, explosions, make venturous trips through the bush and run on fumes, an army vehicle of such.

More these days we see these monster vehicles on the streets used as high beefy A to B transport pieces, with big bling wheels, paint jobs and lots of chrome, and let’s face it they do look quite beefy and sexy.

Like a nice thick woman with curves, who is damn sexy and gives you something to hold onto.

What has become even more common for this monster truck we could call it is its use in the limousine industry. Many companies of limo hire Perth service now equip these machines in their arsenal of transportation.

An always crowd pleaser, big and beefy, boasting lots of space width, height and length for everyone to fit within its interior and comfortably at that.

Again lots of chrome, big wheels, sound systems, and of course a lot of stretch. Holding up to 16 people these things are not to be messed with and regardless of the occasion you can certainly look the part.

From the battlefields of Vietnam, to the city streets of Perth, a now multi-purpose high-class rarity monster. The funny thing about it though, is that at times despite their bulletproof nature,  they just like every other piece of machinery are susceptible to breakdowns. What do you do you then? Grab yourself a monster of a tow truck and get a tow happening.

In all my years I am still yet to see a hummer being towed and probably for the reason of their high indestructibility, however it could happen, and wouldn’t that be a site.

Monster Lens = Mad Photos.

To get a great shot you need to have a good camera, lets face it.

The reason some people are able to specialise in photography is for the fact that they have a mad monstrous camera with a beefy lens that captures every fine detail to the tee.

Now this is not always the case and it isn’t just as simple as having a big camera, clicking on shooting. There is a degree of skill and functionality in taking the photographs. However, it is where the monstrous lens come out to get some mad photos. You see it all the time especially at sporting venues where there is distant between the photographer and the action and so the best way to capture it without being able to get up nice and close is to let the lens do the work for you.

I have seen a few of these bad boys and they can range from one’s as simple as sliding them in and out of your pocket to lenses that require a tripod external to the camera’s tripod due to their size weight and not to mention price tag $$

For the average photographer they are not necessary, it is only when serious dollars and serious full time photography is required. Like i mentioned, just because you have big lens doesn’t guarantee you the result will be better. Bigger doesn’t always mean better.

The monstrosity can simply come from the quality of camera or lens or operator. Either way grab yourself out your camera and take some mad shots, mad shots of monsters if there’s any.

Mad Monsters

Mad Monsters.

The word monster, can sure be used to refer to things that are large, scarey and clawing you to death. But it can also be used to describe a magnificent beast of a thing, place, or action. For example, Lebron James pulls out monster dunks all the time. Here on this blog I will talk about the monstrous things within this little thing we call Earth, from the monsters of trucks, the monsters of dunks, monster of machines, services and monstrous people and places.
