This is Ferdie escaping - in this case, from a wire fence surrounding an earth-moving vehicle that he just wanted to get to, for no good reason. (That's Kenzie watching him). I was reminded of Charlie's behaviour in the last year or so of her life when she was very keen on getting under a fence that was running on the west side of the creek - she was desperate to get under the fence, then she had no idea what to do or how to get back.
Ferdie always likes to escape. It's a real worry, actually.

exams at exhibitchin' buildings

I have this horrible patronising line to my Urban  History students about how lucky they are to get to do their exams at the Exhibition Buildings which, well, they kind of strangely sort of are really, in a sense, except in the sense they'd probably consider themselves luckier if they didn't have to do any exams at all.
The 2015 exam was yesterday and I came in a little early and photographed the scene of the future trauma and tragedy. Lol.
