305 - 31/10/12
Halloween and I thought maybe something spooky might be on the cards for today's shot. Didn't actually get round to taking anything remotely scary, but I did like this first shot of the day. It's a building not so far away at sunrise. More tomorrow.

304 - 30/10/12
It's getting warmer now... I think this weekend might be the last of the cool weather before summer well and truly hits. Then again, this is Melbourne and you never really know.
It got into the 30's today and that means beach weather. Took this right near St. Kilda Beach... just 3 people soaking up the sun. More tomorrow.
303 - 29/10/12
Absolutely beautiful day today and everyone was keen to spend a few minutes out in the sun. Took this while playing with the new camera. I am loving the colours and the bokeh... More tomorrow.

302 - 28/10/12
Out today with the new camera and loving it. Could have easily posted about 5 or so shots, but settled for this one.
Walking around the markets today and heard this great music coming from one of the cafes. A spanish old time jazz duo with the double bass player singing. Really cool guys. More tomorrow.
301 - 27/10/12
Finally got my new camera. This is one of the first few shots I got off while playing with it. The battery is still charging, so I'm hoping tomorrow will be a good shooting day. Might have to get out and shoot a whole lot. More tomorrow.

At a funeral today. A really sad day, but it was great to celebrate the life of young Alex and the strength of his family and friends. RIP little one. More tomorrow.

67 days till the New Year. 67 days till I finish another 365, a shot a day.
Anyway, here's today's shot... a tender moment between mother and son. More tomorrow.

Congratulations Uncle and Aunty on your 50th wedding anniversary. What a wonderful [party tonight. Lots of happy snaps to go through, but couldn't resist this first shot of their first dance. More tomorrow.

291 - 17/10/12
Tomorrow, fingers-crossed, I get my new camera. The new Sony A99. For today, I'm posting something from last night's dinner. The restaurant's signage tilted at 90 degrees... I think it looks cool this way. More tomorrow.

290 - 16/10/12
Out for dinner tonight with the family at this quaint italian place in the city. In the window was this oil lamp, which I thought was really nice. That and the fact that you can see the reflection of the name of the restaurant in the window, I thought was pretty cool. More tomorrow.

In South Melbourne today and saw these 2 standing across the road. Something about it just said "Sit UBU Sit!"... I don't know why. More tomorrow.

A bit of a rush day at the markets today. So much for a breezy Sunday stroll. Took the regular buskers playing in the bright sunshine. What a treat... listening to Peter Gunn while fruit shopping. More tomorrow.

287 - 13/10/12
It looks like I'll have to post early for this whole week. I have my parents down for the duration and they are sleeping where my computer is. So I'll probably have to make all the posts quick and early... any excuse! More tomorrow.

Haven't done a black and white in a while, so here's one of Kerford Road Pier at South Melbourne beach. More tomorrow.

284 - 10/10/12
Got a new lens today, a Minolta 200mm F2.8. It's claimed to be one of the best lenses Minolta has ever made... I don't know about that, but I've got to say it's a real beauty.
Here's something I took without framing, or focusing. I just turned the camera to Eugene and shot. I've been shooting all day with it and I'm loving the bokeh and the sharpness. I'm loving everything about it. So be prepared for more shots with this lens for the foreseeable future. More tomorrow.

This is probably as close to a Ferrari California as I'll ever get. Saw this on the way back, and couldn't resist getting up close (at least as close as possible). I got to say, they really know how to make em. More tomorrow.

Whacked on the 2 x Teleconverter on my beercan lens pointed it at the lit up glass building nearby and got this.
I've taken a few shots of this building, it's really nice when it's all lit up, especially that glass lift shaft. More tomorrow.
281 - 7/10/12
Nothing much to shoot today. Weather was not exactly the best... cold and wet, and wasn't feeling the best to go out and shoot.
Anyway, here's one from warmer days last week. More tomorrow.

Working minutes away from a smaller airport, we get these smaller planes buzzing over all the time. Luckily, I had my 2x extender on today when I looked up. That and a large megapixel camera, allows me to get real close without too much problems. More tomorrow.

280 - 6/10/12
Spring time and the cherry blossoms are out in bloom. The fact that it's in front of an adult store is purely coincidental.
Out for dinner tonight and there across the road was this shop...um tree. More tomorrow.

Another visitor today. And what a glorious day... 30 degrees, sun was out and it was just perfect. The down side, I was at work, instead of being outside, but at least I had this visitor come say hello. More tomorrow.

277 - 3/10/12
Apparently we had the worst gridlock day ever in Melbourne, and all because of a computer glitch. The official line was the signs weren't working in the tunnels and as a result they had to shut them down.
Well here's me stuck in traffic today... only good thing was I go against the flow of traffic, and I still doubled my commute time. More tomorrow.
276 - 2/10/12
One from a few weeks ago. Balloon just at take off/launch... Really want to be there when they start, but their unpredictable timing and the fact that they sometimes have a really really early start, seems to be a bit of a stumbling block. More tomorrow.
