DAY 181. 30/6/11
More from the Lensbaby. Here's St. Kilda's very own Luna Park. It's just past closing time and in the middle of winter, so I guess it was always going to look vacant, but still it looks pretty cool in tilt shift. More tomorrow.
DAY 180. 29/6/11
On the drive back from football every week, I usually try and get a shot of the new AAMI stadium. Most times, the shot is nothing but a big blur. Well tonight's shot is much less of a blur and the way the lights show up... I really like it. More tomorrow.

DAY 174. 23/6/11
A quick pop into the city tonight with the new Lensbaby, and did I go crazy. Really loving all the bokeh and stuff that you get with it. Here's one of many taken tonight, it's of Fed Square, it could really be anything, but the way the tiltshift and HDR work... I love it. More tomorrow.
DAY 173. 22/6/11
Got a new lens today. My very own lensbaby, so I guess I'll be tilt-shifting for a while till I get used to focusing with the lens. Anyway here's one of the 50+ shots I took today with the lens.
This is Jeff making the all important call to call off or carry on with tonight's football because of the weather. Well the rains held off and we played in the cold. Good game. More tomorrow.

DAY 162. 11/6/11
After a really long day of football followed by heavy lifting, the last thing I really wanted was to be walking across the river to find a place to eat. And that's exactly what did... walk across the river and back just to find food. What it did allow me to do was to get this shot. More tomorrow.
It's the eve of a long weekend, and it's the last holiday till November, so i'm really wanting the next 72 hours to stretch out for as long as possible.
Anyway here's a shot I took of the flooring at a bowling alley in HDR. Really love what HDR does to wood. More tomorrow.

Coldest day in a long time in Melbourne today, so really, having car trouble and going out and about early in the morning trying to solve it wasn't the best part of my day.
