Here's a shot of the wet streets of Melbourne just I was heading out for dinner. More tomorrow.

029 - 29/1/13
Out in the city today for work. A nice change from being in our usual location. Took this on my walk back to the car.
Sadly, I missed the show, but looking at the couch and the people surrounding the CD booth it, looks like it was a pretty good show. More tomorrow.

Couldn't really go past an Australia Day without a fireworks shot could I. Here's one, right before we headed out last night taken around the corner from my place. More tomorrow.

A really hot day today, and it seems like everyone was at the beach. Everyone that is except me.
Anyway here's a shot of the wall that divides the beach from the road with a beachful of people in the background. More tomorrow.

Out at the tennis again tonight. and just got home. So here's from one of the earlier matches on show court 2. More tomorrow.

Yet more from the tennis. This time I wanted to try a tilt shift effect on a group of people in a queue. It didn't really turnout as I hoped for, but I still like the result. More tomorrow.

At the Tennis today. Love the early stages where you can walk around and see a whole host of players. Here's Yanina Wickmayer playing her women's doubles game. More tomorrow.
015 - 15/1/13
Thought it might be time for a black and white. Still trying to get the high key black and white going, but as you can see, to now avail. Keep trying I guess. More tomorrow.

Got up early in the morning to find this floating outside. Wonder how well the advertising is going for the lawyers. More tomorrow.
012 - 12/1/13
Walking around South Melbourne and this sign outside the pub caught my eye, well that and the pair of shoes hanging at the side. Wonder if that means the same thing it does in US. More tomorrow.

008 - 8/1/13
Last day of the holidays before I fly back to Melbourne, and it was a scorcher! 40+ degrees!
Anyway, was trying to get a shot of some birds taking refuge from the heat in the mango tree, but they hightailed it the moment I got close.
So here's a shot of the mangoes then. Legend has it that they are sweet and succulent when ripe, however, I've never been around to try a ripe one. So the best I can do is get a shot of it. More tomorrow.

006 - 6/1/13
Sunday evening football in the park... some of the joys of being back in Perth for the holidays. Could have done with less sun in the face, slightly cooler weather and more fitness, but I'm being picky here.
Anyway, here's Bobby running around as he does with his best blue steel pose. More tomorrow.

005 - 5/1/13
Another shot of those coloured garden lights in the shape of a butterfly in my Dad's garden. I still think the colour changing thing is a bit tacky, but I have to admit, it's growing on me. More tomorrow.

004 - 4/1/13
Just trying to do my best Ansel Adams. There's this tree across the road that has been bare at the top for as long as I can remember. I photograph it everytime I'm here and have been trying to get that black sky, black and white. Well here's the latest work in progress. More tomorrow.

002 - 2/1/13
This happens every year... I get up early for the new year's test (cricket), knowing that it's never on new year's day but the day after... or is it? It isn't because it's on the 3rd! Ahh the problems I have while on holiday!
OK on to today's shot... a cricket. Saw this little fella basking in the sun, so I decided to get down low and got the shot. More tomorrow.

001 - 1/1/13
Happy new year. Here's the first one for the year. Almost forgot what starting another one of these entailed. Apart from the hour or so at night before bed, there's all these admin stuff that needs to be sorted out. Anyway, it's all done. Took this shot at the Perth International Airport... a very interesting X'mas tree that stands about 2 stories high. This is probably just half the height. More tomorrow.

366 - 31/12/12
That's it for the year, and I can't believe it's been 3 years now. I'll probably keep doing this for another year, because I love it, but maybe not as regimented as I've been for the past 1,096 days. Meaning I'll let myself get some off days in the coming year.
Again, without the inspiration of Dustin Diaz and many of my Flickr friends and my photography junky buddies, these 3 years would not have been possible.
Also thanks to Sony for making a kickass camera, the Alpha 99, you took your time, but it was worth it... now can I get free stuff?
But most of all thinks to everyone that's come through and looked at my photos each day. I hope you'd enjoyed it as much as I have posting them.
On to the last photo of the year. I've really been waiting to try this out for a few months now. I set the camera to 1 sec and fired the flash followed by a bit of camera shake, just to get those lights going all over the place. I really happy how this one turned out. More tomorrow. And Happy New Year!
Strobist info: HVL F60AM at 1/2 power with a diffuser from about 4 feet away from the congas camera left bouncing off the back wall another 4 feet away. The rest is all thanks to camera shake.
