334 - 29/11/12
Spent some time at the Air Museum and had a great time taking photos and listening to the guys who ran the place talk about the collection. It was all great except for the 40+ degree weather.
Here's a shot of a Fairey Gannet A.S.4 roasting under the sun. More tomorrow.

333 - 28/11/12
One really pissed off looking gull, you could even call it an Angry bird... OK cheap joke. Still really loving the separation the lens gives with the bokeh. More tomorrow.

331 - 26/11/12
God light at sunset. I've been chasing the god light for a while now, and was really glad to see it today. I had to stop and take the shot. More tomorrow.

330 - 25/11/12
Another Sunday at the markets and walked pass this bottleshop (shop that sells alcohol) couldn't resist taking a shot of their wares. So simple, yet so effective display units, just fits the market feel down to a tee. more tomorrow.
219 - 24/11/12
Out at St Kilda this evening and took this shot of a boat that looked very different from any other boat in the harbour. Gone is the white hull and white masts, this was black. In fact it was such a black sheep, it was anchored well away from the other boats. In any case I thought it looked cool. More tomorrow.

328 - 23/11/12
Close encounters of the feathered kind. These... swans/geese/ducks (as you can tell I don't know my fowls) inhabit the lake across my place. I've got to say they look pretty menacing up close. More tomorrow.

327 - 22/11/12
Free WIFI, as rare a commodity as gold in this internet backwater. OK before I start ranting, I've got to say that at least we're trying. Anyway, one of the places that does have free WIFI is Fed Square, which is why you'll see many of this all over the square. More tomorrow.

326 - 21/11/12
More from the other day at Fed Square. Meet Gretchen, my somewhat reluctant model. Love the somber profile and that lovely beanie along with some really cool bokeh. More tomorrow.

325 - 20/11/12
Took this a couple of days ago... agh, young love, in spring. What really struck me was the richness of the colours. Man, I love this camera and lens combination. More tomorrow.

324 - 19/11/12
More from the Latin festival yesterday. I can't tell my salsa from a cha cha, so here's another dance act doing quite amazing stuff. More tomorrow.

323 - 18/11/12
At the Johnston Street Latin Festival today and took over 1000 shots. It's going to take a while to process the lot, so here's one of the early ones. More tomorrow.
321 - 16/11/12
Been a busy shooting day today... actually well over 500 shots today. Most of it was for a work do. Something however stuck with me from last night... this shot of the lights at Taste Melbourne. It's a like a light bulb smiley face. More tomorrow.

322 - 17/11/12
Out today at a Sony Masterclass at Fed Square. Was a good 2 hour session about Sony cameras, and a good 30 mins of shooting around the area.
Took quite a few shots today, and I suspect I'll be posting quite a few from the day's shoot. Here's one of a really good street performer that had the crowd of about 100 in his hands during his show. More tomorrow.

320 - 15/11/12
Out at Taste Melbourne tonight, 5 days of food and drinks at Albert Park. Quite interesting. Here's a shot of one of the many bars at the show. More tomorrow.

319 - 14/11/12
There are few iconic sporting venues in the world that can match the MCG. Before moving to Melbourne, the G always held this sense of awe and wonder. Now that I've been to the stadium, nothing's changed. I still get tingles every time I see it. 100,000+ capacity, 100+ years of sporting history... you get the picture.
I took this from the rooftop car park at Fed Square. Might get back there at night when a game is on and take a shot under lights. Should be grand. More tomorrow.
318 - 13/11/12
At a work do today and here's an outtake from the morning. It's SunSense's new ambassador Carrie Bickmore during an interview. More tomorrow.

317 - 12/11/12
Out tonight and had to detour through the city to get home. The detour did allow me to get this shot... shooting the shooter. It's quite funny a few seconds after this when they realised I had shot them shooting me and they both laughed with thumbs up. More tomorrow.

316 - 11/11/12
Had to do a loop of the city today. And what a lovely day it was. Ended the loop with a quick shopping trip in South Melbourne.
Anyway I took this while waiting for the lights to change under a bridge with the sun at full bore just beyond. Lighting conditions were slightly challenging, but not for my new baby. Did I say I love this camera? More tomorrow.
315 - 10/11/12
Spent most of the day vegging out, so didn't do much shooting. So here's something from a week ago. Also I haven't done a black and white in a while.
So here are the drunk people in black and white. More tomorrow.

314 - 9/11/12
Sunshine on a rainy day. I got a few shots of the rain falling on the leaves, but the colours and the bokeh on this shot was just too good to resist. More tomorrow.

313 - 8/11/12
Really loving the new camera and the speed of the minolta 200mm f2.8 lens. It's fast, has beautiful colours and when you have scenes like this to shoot... it makes for a really nice combination. More tomorrow.

312 - 7/11/12
This is everywhere. I can't believe he's been booked well into next year. Still there isn't a station there doesn't play the song, a club that doesn't have at least one person mimicking the dance. Even little 5 year olds are doing the Gangnam Style. More tomorrow.
311 - 6/11/12
No luck in the cup today... not even a sniff. Someone remind me never to go with the form books again.
Didn't take much photos today, my concentration was more on the cup, so here's one from a few days ago... crazy sky and cloud colours. More tomorrow.

310 - 5/11/12
While most of the city was on holiday the day before Melbourne Cup day, I was at work. Not because I was hard working, I just didn't plan ahead enough and apply for leave.
Anyway, took this on the way home. More tomorrow.

309 - 4/11/12
A bit of bokeh play from last night... Really too much drink and also did the stupid of thing of playing football today. It all adds up to a very tired me... hence a photo from yesterday. More tomorrow.
308 - Out tonight in the city, it was Derby Day, so everyone was out on the town and dressed to the nines. I had to wait till almost the end of the night to get this shot. There was just too much distractions before this. More tomorrow.

307 - 2/11/12
Out in the city this morning and took this outside the big department store in the city. A bit of window shopping before the big racing days tomorrow and Cup day.... Maybe. More tomorrow.
