DAY 365. 31/12/11
Last one for the year. And that's the end of year 2. Still not sure if I'll go on with a year 3, but it's been too much fun not to keep going.
Like to thank everyone who've come to the Flickr page, Blog and Facebook page. There's been close to 80,000 of you. Thanks. And once again, thanks to Sony for making kick-arse cameras, everyone who's appeared as willing and unwilling subjects and Dustin Dias for the spark.
Today's shot was taken at dawn today. Just something from Dad's beautiful hanging baskets. That's it for today. Happy New Year All.
DAY 364. 30/12/11
2nd last post till the end. Have been asked if I'll keep it going to Year 3, and really, I haven't decided. Anyway here's something I've kept for a while now, and still in it's original packaging. It's Princess Leia in Jabba's slave costume... you know the one we all dreamed about the second we saw her in Return of the Jedi. 1 more tomorrow.

DAY 363. 29/12/11
During my online shopping for xmas presents, I came across this little gem. A Piano keyboard mat. It has 100 sounds, 100 rhythms and midi capability... Really quite outstanding. Of course it being still in my possession so many days after xmas also means someone has probably missed out on a present. Shame. More tomorrow.

DAY 362. 28/12/11
Got this many moons ago on a trip to China. Used it a few times and the results were quite outstanding for the $20 odd I paid for it. I'll try and find the results and posts them sometime. For now, this will have to do. More tomorrow.

DAY 361. 27/12/11
Out to the city for lunch today... Perth City I mean, I took this just outside the WACA (Perth's Cricket Stadium). Thought it was funny to have the street lamp facing the gigantic stadium lights, like they were talking to each other. I thought it was funny at the time. More tomorrow.

DAY 351. 17/12/11
Thought I'd get at least one Christmas tree shot in before the year's end. I suspect there'll be more once I get back to Perth for the holidays, but here's one from Melbourne.
Took this while out tonight. A giant Christmas tree at QV. More tomorrow.

DAY 345. 11/12/11
20 more days to the end of the year, 20 days till I finish my 2nd 365. Well here one of Melbourne city, with a bit of christmas decorations. Not really the most exciting of street decorations, but I guess it'll have to do for the outskirts of the city. More tomorrow.

DAY 343. 9/12/11
Out tonight in the city. Lots of Christmas Parties going on at this time of the year, in fact there probably wasn't a bar that we went to tonight that didn't have some form of celebration going on.
Here's a shot while moving from one place to another. A very stylish couple doing the party rounds. More tomorrow.

At the Melbourne Victory v LA Galaxy game today, or the David Beckham show. As football goes, it wasn't a great game but as far as a spectacle goes, it was pretty big! Well here's the man himself, getting ready to take a corner kick. More tomorrow.

DAY 335. 1/12/11
More from the photobus. This time it's my namesake Darren getting his photo taken. What's even better is this shot was taken right at the point when the UV flash came on. More tomorrow.
DAY 334. 30/11/11
We had the SunSense Photobus come to the office today. It basically takes a UV photo of your face and is supposed to give you an indication of how much sun damage has been done to the face. That's the idea, but some of our scientists begged to differ the actual results.
Anyway, here's a shot of Nicole just about to stick her head into the machine... freaky. More tomorrow.
