9Week 02

9Week 02 7-14/1/18

Finally back to street shooting. Really wished I brought my 50mm on this little walkabout (less intrusive, and at f1.4 heaps more bokeh). Still, couldn't resist the light falling on the columns, stairs and the people when I saw the scene. More next week.

9Week 01

9Week 01 - 1-7/01/18

Here we go, another year another photographic journey. I'm starting this year's on a minor technicality. This was taken about 14 hours before the start of the year, which technically makes it last year's shot, but what the hell, it's my page, and I'll "cheat" if I want to.

Anyway, here's Genie Bouchard at the Hopman Cup, didn't win this particular match, but showed promise at the end of the match. More next week.

Week8 52

Week8 52 23-31 December

Happy New Year. So ends another year of shooting a shot a week and yes I'll be doing another year... my 9th year.

When I began this, I didn't think it would go on for this long, and I really didn't think it would be this all consuming monster that would cost my many thousands and much of my waking life. Still, wouldn't really have it any other way now.

Enough nostalgia, I'll save the soppy bits for when I go into a decade of doing this. For now, I'd like to thank Dustin Diaz for the initial spark of inspiration and my family and friends that have made this so much fun.

This final photo of the year is of Genie Bouchard in her first tournament of the tennis year, but the last of the calendar year... all the way in sunny and hot Perth, Western Australia.

More in the new year!

Week8 51

Week8 51 16-23 December

The reason why our past 2 weeks have been filled with laughter from dawn to way past dusk. Sadly they just got on a flight back home and so I'm posting the penultimate post of the year in a somewhat solemn mood.

Missing them already. More in a couple of days.

Thought it might be time to do a holiday bokeh shot. This is of a 3 storey high X'mas tree at the Crown casino and resort lobby. More next week.

Week8 49

Week8 49 2-12 December

Only 3 more weeks left to the end of another year doing a shot a week.

This or rather last week's shot is something we did on Saturday. That's Bindy and Max and this was for a shoot of their wedding invite. Couldn't have asked for a smoother shoot. Great talents, excellent location and perfect light. More next week.

Week8 48

Week8 48  25 Nov - 2 Dec

Took this on the Friday before the weekend storms were supposed to hit Melbourne.

We were warned of flooding and what seemed like storms of apocalyptic proportions. As it turned out, there was pretty heavy rains throughout the weekend, but the flooding and the major storms bypassed Melbourne and affected some flood prone areas and mainly the outer suburbs.

Still it did give me a chance to capture those menacing clouds as they approached my balcony. More next week.
