DAY 212. 31/7/11
Day 2 of Melbourne Open House turned out to be glorious. Did lots of walking in the city and almost travelled the whole length of the city looking at buildings and places of interests.
This shot is not of anything on the Melbourne Open House schedule, but it still was one cool shot, with the sun just bursting through the clouds and appearing behind the big arch. More tomorrow.
DAY 211. 30/7/11
Day 1 of Melbourne Open House, will post shots of that at a later stage. The weather wasn't that great, which soured the experience slightly, but still it was an interesting day.
Took this when I got home. 2 rainbows. I know it's quite common in Melbourne, but it's still very exciting to see 2 side-by-side. More tomorrow.

DAY 210. 29/7/11
Took this last night. All my cameras are being charged at the moment, getting them ready for a massive shooting day tomorrow at the Melbourne Open House. Anyway this is of the more notorious end of Melbourne city. Beyond the Aquarium lies a street lined with exotic dancers and shady bars... Heaven? More tomorrow.

DAY 209. 28/7/11
Out in the city tonight, but this shot just at sunset was my favourite for the day. Anyway, it's late, I'm tired and in need of sleep. More tomorrow.

DAY 208. 27//7/11
IT's football night, which means it's takeaway night, or in tonight's case drive-through. Here's the view from the drive through at my local golden archers. More tomorrow.

DAY 207. 26/7/11
Another one of those old buildings that you'll find sprinkled around South Melbourne. Looking at the shot, it got me thinking about the tree in front. I wonder how old that is. Anyway here they both are, in HDR. More tomorrow.
DAY 206. 25/7/11
More HDR. Took this on my way back home. Pretty much like any alleyway in Melbourne sans the graffiti... which, come to think of it is unlike any alleyway in Melbourne. More tomorrow.

DAY 205. 24/7/11
Took this on the way back home today. Middle of winter, it's wet and cold and surprising not completely bereft of greenery. Here it is in HDR. More tomorrow.

DAY 204. 23/7/11
Took this after lunch today. Just a few sneakers thrown over a power line. What's it all mean though? Some say it's a sign of losing virginity, some say that it's a sign that there are drugs nearby. Only thing is, can you really lose your virginity 3 times? And this was taken just behind the town council building and not far at all from the police station. Maybe it's just some poor guy whose had his sneaker collection been used as shoefetti. More tomorrow.

DAY 203. 22/7/11
It was Emma's last day at work today. Very sad to see her go, but happy she's going to bigger and better things. See you Emma, will miss you much. More tomorrow.

DAY 201. 20/7/11
Usually on football days, delivery or drive through is the choice of cuisine. Well today was no different; took this while at the lights, and who should pop up in front of me but this... with a bit of HDR of course. More tomorrow.
Tuesday, July 19, 2011
DAY 200. 19/7/11
Time to get some strobist action going again... it's been a while. A bit of HDR work and there you go. More tomorrow.

DAY 197. 16/7/11
Was up early and playing football this morning, this time with camera in hand. Mind you it was a nippy 4.7 degrees when we got up to play... Brrrr!
Took this shot after the game at the car, still would have been under 10 degrees at the time, but the sun was out, and all things considered, a really nice day. More tomorrow.

DAY 195. 14/7/11
How High The Moon - Ella Fitzgerald
Saw a couple of moon shots online yesterday and really wanted to do the "holding the moon" or "moon is a balloon" shot, but really the tonight's moon wasn't big enough for the shot. So here's one of the moon from my balcony. More tomorrow.

DAY 194. 13/7/11
Middle of winter. Cold. Night. Crowded tram. You know this time of year can be really depressing. Well, here's that feeling captured in 50mm and HDR. More tomorrow.

DAY 193. 12/7/11
Another tilt shift and HDR for that awesome sunset sky. Took this on the drive home, sometimes the drive home is just a feast for the lenses. More tomorrow.
DAY 192. 11/7/11
Just realised it's been about a year today since I found HDR. And in a little tribute, here's a slightly different view of one of my first HDR shots. This time with a little tilt-shift. Hello HDR, really glad I found you. More tomorrow.

DAY 191. 10/7/11
Out for dinner tonight, so I had my camera with me. Took this at one of the junctions, just like the way lights play off the wet road. More tomorrow.

DAY 188. 7/7/11
Another one from the road today. Took a similar one a couple of months ago, but I just like the sky and the Spirit of Tasmania in the background. More tomorrow.

DAY 185. 4/7/11
Another shot from the other day, this time, as I was crossing some bridge or other that goes across the river. A bit of bokeh, a bit of HDR, a bit of lens flare and one funky bridge. More tomorrow.

DAY 184. 3/7/11
Not so much of a shooting day today... it was cold and cloudy, so here's one from yesterday. This was taken outside the Exhibition Centre, a majestic tallship called Polly Woodside. More tomorrow.
DAY 183. 2/7/11
At the car show today, or more specifically the Australian International Motor Show. Took quite a few shots, and apart from the usual marquee car names, this was the one that really took my eye. I will at some stage upload more shots from the day. More tomorrow.

DAY 182. 1/7/11
Out in the city on a Friday night. Took this shot of one of the many alleyways in Melbourne. Of course with the lensbaby and HDR for company. More tomorrow.
