Parklife - Caught On Camera

Friday, 5 October 2007
Parklife is officially over.

News from around the states is that it was another success (minus the toilet stuff, the drink tokens and the usual group of idiots who think it's cool to climb scaffolding). If you're one of the crazy kids that leaves on-lookers discombobulated by your actions, then there's every chance your photo was taken by someone in the background.

Yes, we caught them.

Here at Central, we've decided to compile a list of those shots that encaptured the poignant times of Parklife 2007. Normally, there'd be loads of those 'one shot in a million' things, but we thought we'd go low-brow and give you our version of defining moments - state by state - in glorious style.

Everyone's a fan of the 'pain in the arse, not a pane of glass' statement. Most people try to avoid the phrase being thrown at them, which is why it's beyond belief that the bloke in this photo didn't see a camera pointing at a subject. Yes...he fucked the shot while looking at a phone that was around his neck. Who wears a bloody phone around their neck-

Sydney - Business As Usual

Juxtaposing">http://www.centralstation.com.au/images/parklifewrap/sydney.jpg">
Juxtaposing the 'rush, rush, business' state of mind with 'confused' is never easy, but our Sydney photographer captured the moment brilliantly. We're not quite sure why, though.

Brisbane - Crotchless Bloke

Please note: Fluoro headband, Crossword-like singlet and gold, tight leotard-like pants are not the rage, as this man would like you to think. We think he was at the Sydney leg and got lost on the way to the Air stage">http://www.centralstation.com.au/images/parklifewrap/brisbane.jpg">
