9Week 05

Just running a couple of weeks behind in posting. Took this one of the Super Blue Blood Moon, a mouthful to say, but it does take your breath away. More soon.

9Week 04

9Week 04 21-28/1/18

The Australia Day long weekend turned out to be a real hot one. With temperatures in the high 30s and high humidity, it was a wonder so many came out to play at the Australia Day Parade and party at Kings Domain at the botanical gardens. I took this on my way home, when the roads were still relatively quiet and everyone was still in a party mood. More next week.

Australian Open week, so naturally it was going to be a Genie shot. Took this during her second round match with Halup. Better luck next year. More next week.

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.
