I don’t often go looking for new places to explore during the day, but here I was one fine sunny Melb day, sticking my head into every alleyway I passed regardless of whether I’d been down it before. I found a lot of the same old crap as I’ve found other times I’ve looked in the same places. Yet as boring as it was, I was determined to keep on searching until I found something new. There was no going home until a new roof had been located.
After what was probably 3 hours, I at last stumbled across something which was indeed new. It was a small yet interesting enough looking building with a fairly simple way up the outside of it. Even with the severe lack of height to it, this one would suffice, especially seeing as I hadn’t been on any other rooftops on that block before, so although it wasn’t much of a challenge it did provide a fresh view of the city.
That shifty lookin’ bugger pictured above with his freshly shaved head and goatee beard joined me for this mini mission. As the two of us carefully made our way around the edge of this roof, I noticed an anti-ninja-motion-sensing-machine sneakily tucked away where we wanted to go. A steady flash of green pulsated from it like a resting heartbeat. Knowing that some of these little traps are shit and can be passed undetected at snail pace, I hoped that this one would fall into that category. With my eagle eyes focused hard on the green dot, I edged forward into its zone.
The pulsating green dot that would grant me passage to the rest of the roof if I was stealthy enough, unluckily died out within my first few steps forward, and was replaced by a silent, solid red light. Normally, falling into traps like this results in getting your ears assaulted with a rather loud, unpleasant, high pitched noise that gets you shitting brix and running like hell in a heart beat depending on where you are. Even without the ear destruction, it was clearly time for us to bugger off.
