DAY 333. 29/11/11
Took this on Toorak Road. I've got to say, for a high end shopping and dinning area, this shot makes it look like it's the main street of a country town. I suppose having the ute in the middle of the shot doesn't help either. More tomorrow.

DAY 331. 27/11/11
Much better day today. Sunshine, beautiful blue skies and a whole lot of nothing much to do on a Sunday... Would have loved to go play football but that's another story altogether.
Took this shot of Kingsway. Probably never seen it so clear. More tomorrow.
DAY 330. 26/11/11
Raining all day, I don't think the sun came out even once the whole day! So here's one from a more pleasant day... Out in the city in the sunshine. Much better. More tomorrow.

DAY 329. 25/11/11
A month to x'mas and 35 days to the end of my 2nd 365. Been doing this for over 700 days... what the hell was I thinking of?
Anyway was out tonight and took this of the bar... really like all that back lighting. More tomorrow.

DAY 328. 24/11/11
Flinders Street Station from Elizabeth Street in HDR. It's like a grand old monolith nestled among all the modern skyscrapers. Pretty cool. More tomorrow.

DAY 326. 22/11/11
Taking portraits at work today. Here's one of the outtakes. Here's Margaret, she never stops moving... never! She even moves faster than 2 Elinchrome D-Lites. 3 dozen shots and only a handful without movement blur. I kid you not! Still it was fun. More tomorrow.

DAY 325. 21/11/11
Took this in the city. Here's a a couple of horses dressed up as a tram. Apparently, the old horse and carriage travels on the tram lanes now, and stops at all the stops. More tomorrow.

DAY 324. 20/11/11
No football today for me, in fact no football for while until the hamstring heals. Still I couldn't resist going down to watch a game today, and with camera in tow.
Here's the Canadian Speedster (shirt off) in full stride. More tomorrow.

DAY 323. 19/11/11
Was at a birthday lunch today and did get to take a few shots. Probably would have posted a different shot but for fear of the wrath of 4 ladies who would never think their shots are perfect. Nevertheless, here's another one from the party with less repercussions. More tomorrow.
If you wanted the other shot, here it is.

DAY 322. 19/11/11
Just got news that my designs for some hotel amenities packaging won some editors choice award in the US. Details are still sketchy at the moment, but I'd thought I'd share the inspiration for the packaging design... this shot taken a while ago.
The design was for Jean-Michel Cousteau's (son of Jacques Cousteau) new line of very eco-friendly hotel amenities with actives from the purest source of seaweed in the world. OK enough Marketing Speak. I'm just glad to win. More tomorrow.
Here's the link to a shot of the packaging.

DAY 321. 17/11/11
Took this after dinner the other day. Nothing much really just another bunch of people trying to get a cab at night. And as usual without any luck. More tomorrow.

DAY 320. 16/11/11
One of those days again. Camera in hand, but SD card still at home in the card reader. Damn it's not like I haven't done this everyday for 665 days!
So here's one I took a few days ago. Not an appealing colour for a river, but then again, someone has to do the dirty work. More tomorrow.

DAY 319. 15/11/11
Germany and Australia. The 2 countries have been neck and neck in the battle to be the world's largest consumer of beer. And now we bring out the big guns! More tomorrow.

DAY 318. 14/11/11
Bed-bound today, so no shooting. Did manage to take this yesterday morning, while waiting for a ride to football. Just a little, and I use the term loosely, Rock Garden in front of my apartment. More tomorrow.
Sunday, November 13, 2011
DAY 317. 13/11/11
Took this yesterday. No it's not outside a donut shop. It's a police parking lot, never thought stuff like that existed... but I guess they all need to park their cars at some point. More tomorrow.
DAY 316 12/11/11
It's late, so a quick one today. Here's a panoramic shot of the Melbourne Exhibition Centre (aka Jeff's Shed) from across the river in HDR. More tomorrow.

DAY 315. 11/11/11
Pretty self-explanatory image. Once every thousand year, this date appears... so here's a little photoshop tribute to the day. More tomorrow.

DAY 309. 5/11/11
Not Venice nor Vegas, this is still Melbourne. Just a romantic gondola ride on the Yarra River, on a really warm night. Excuse the blur image, it was really dark and I was pushing the ISO to its max. More tomorrow.
Saturday, November 5, 2011
DAY 308. 4/11/11
Took this at a bar. Really liked the oriental screen and how it seemed to hide something more sinister and sensual behind it. Or maybe it was the ladies in the background that brought out the picture. More tomorrow.

DAY 307. 3/11/11
Out tonight and saw this really good band play. Seemed to get better the longer we were there, maybe it was them warming up to the set, maybe it's the alcohol and tiredness. I don't know, I'm just saying. More tomorrow.

DAY 306. 2/11/11
Another one of Elvis from the other day. Here's a closer shot of him doing his thing. Thank you... thank you very much. More tomorrow.

DAY 305. 1/11/11
Not quite the Melbourne Cup, but here are horses going around a bend. No luck today at the race that stops a nation, actually not even close. More tomorrow.
