 MEBOURNE, Australia — Up to 400 people stripped naked then draped themselves in see-through red fabric in a Melbourne city car park on Monday to pose for U.S. photographer Spencer Tunick.  A supermarket had initially refused the photographer renowned for large-scale nude crowd shots around the world permission to use its rooftop car park in the inner suburb of Prahran. But the retailer relented in the face of a public backlash, with 12,000 people applying to take part.  Chloe Horler said she felt lucky to be included among the hundreds of men and women who stripped in 9 degree Celsius (48 degree Fahrenheit) morning cool in Australia’s second-largest city.
