On the 15th October 2011, upon waking up, I decided to go to the observation deck of Q1 Gold Coast. After paying the entry fee I asked the elevator clerk how his day had been. He said his day had been excellent and asked of mine. I told him of my plans and he said to me, "Ahh, this could be your lucky day, a storm is coming!" ding. 78th floor. So I sat on a chair and wedged my camera up against the glass and waited for the storm. After a chat about why my shirt was off and over the lens to block the reflection, 5 coffees, 1 scone and a bite of caramel slice the elevator clerk was proven right!
