Just putting together some stuff from the archives. I took these laser lights at a gallery and the model from a shoot a while ago. More tomorrow.

Can't believe it's almost coming to an end. 5 years of 365... Another 3 more posts and I'll be done. Start on a newer photography adventure... not much different from a 365, but something more involved.
Anyway this was taken a few days ago, and I was in wonder of the bokeh, probably as much as the girl on the phone. More tomorrow.

Boxing Day and like any other boxing day, it was spent watching cricket, eating and sleeping. On the occasion that I did step out of the house to attend a dinner party, I saw this.
I know I take this shot every year around this time, but the moon in just the right spot... that I've never seen before. So here you go, the 5th last 365 ever. More tomorrow.

At the annual Christmas Party, and managed to get 4 generations of the Hendricks girls. Mind you, out of the 8 ladies in the photo, only 1 carries the Hendricks name and that's her married name too. More tomorrow.

While it may be the post for Xmas eve, it's already past midnight here and so Merry Christmas everyone. Here's the obligatory Christmas tree shot for the year. More tomorrow.

A bit of composite work today. Took this at the christmas party a few weeks ago and the brilliant bokeh from the Christmas lights at the Casino. More tomorrow.

It seems as though my own blog has blocked me from signing in, which is the reason I missed yesterday. ( That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)
Anyway, my little Goddaughter came for a visit to day to spread some festive cheer and to play some of the 33 songs she's learnt since I saw her last! Well done my dear. More tomorrow.

Am posting this hours before my flight back to Perth for the holidays. I really need to get some sleep now, so here's something I shot yesterday... Again those wedge sneakers... More tomorrow.

Crazy weather today. First it was warm, then it threatened to rain, but not before some really strong winds hit us during the rush hour home. Took this of some brave soul walking against the wind. More tomorrow.

Out in the city for dinner tonight, when I should be doing what she's doing... taking a load off, sitting down and resting. Tired legs and tired minds. More tomorrow.
Didn't post yesterday again. It was a very long day for me, at our end of year Xmas party. Here's a shot of it from afar. Really love those lanterns, and if you look closely enough, a little oddity to the right of the picture. More tomorrow.

Missed yesterday's post... was too tired to do anything. Today is no different, but I did have quite a few shots to choose from (when it rains, it pours),
There was the one where adults were caught on camera playing with toys. Then there was the one where a grown up female plays the Ninja Turtles Game on the Xbox (also quite funny); then there was the one were the kid bullies the adult... but today's winner had to be this... I call it Ball In Face. Still funny every time I see it. More tomorrow.

Another one of those shots from the archives that I wish was a lot sharper. I think I was trying some double exposure over bokeh, or just plain tripping. More tomorrow.

Something from the archives... not as sharp as I would like it to be, but I really liked the bokeh on this. OK is sleepy time... More tomorrow.

There's this billboard that I pass everyday on my way home. While most times it's just some nondescript ad of some kind, this current rotation sees the new Peroni ad gracing my journey home. So here's one straight off the little QX10. More tomorrow.

Out on a really gloomy day in the city. It was cold, but not cold enough... wet, but not wet enough... dry, but a bit too humid for comfort. Still the city offers a whole lot to see. I did think some X'mas lights would have been nice to shoot, but this woman on a bike was too cool to resist. More tomorrow.
Took this while waiting for my haircut. The remarkable Tassos (nicknamed Con the Barberer) has been at the same site in South Melbourne since the 1950's; and I've been going to him since my time in Melbourne. More tomorrow.

Some stuff from the archives. Took this a while ago at the hotel lobby of the Rialto Building. Really like going through the archives to see shots I've overlooked. More tomorrow.

Stuck in traffic for 3 hours, an hour late for dinner and frustrated beyond belief! All this to try out this new burger joint called Grand Trailer Park Taverna. The burgers were OK, the milkshake was crazy (bourbon, vanilla and maple bacon... yes bacon!). What it lacked in taste, it made up for in ambience. The whole decor was made to look like a trailer park. Now that's pretty cool. More tomorrow.

Actually took this a few minutes after I posted yesterday's shot. I guess with the warm weather comes ballooning season, so there might be a few more of these before year's end. More tomorrow.

Out for an awards night for work today. We didn't win the gold, so I on't think we were all in that great a mood... yes, yes, sportsmanship... etc. Anyway, I took this on my way back and decided to do some composite work before bed. More tomorrow.
Wednesday, November 26, 2014
Took this on a really beautiful day last week... in fact most days these days are really perfect weather-wise. Makes you want to spend all day out in the sunned shooting the breeze. More tomorrow.

Something from Southbank just across from the city. The bridge at the back is Queen's Bridge. Was trying to get that halo over her head, but I had to compromise between dirty clothes from lying on the ground or just winging it without looking at the viewfinder. Guess which option I chose. More tomorrow.

Up all night watching football, and caught this just after dawn. For a moment I thought it was going to be a water landing. Thankfully, it landed about 100 meters or so to the left on the grass. More tomorrow.

More shots from the night noodle market in the city. Yes it's meant to be at night, but the sunsets pretty late this time of the year. Yes it's meant to be a noodle market, but everyone's has to keep hydrated in this heat. More tomorrow.

At the Night Noodle Market tonight. Thankfully we got there early and managed to get one of those empty seats you see down there. Mind you, the set up was pretty cool... good food and lots of bars... if only there wasn't that much people there! More tomorrow.
Tuesday, November 18, 2014
Took this on the way back from work today. Couldn't resist that lovely smile that seemed to reflect the kind of day (weather wise) today. That, or she was just really happy... either way, it was a shot I had to take. More tomorrow.

The weather, cricket on TV and, truth be told, laziness all conspired to stop me from attending this weekend's Johnston Street Latin Festival. In it's place, here are some more shots of Barmaids from the Munich tent from yesterday's Taste Of Melbourne. More tomorrow.
Out to the Taste Of Melbourne today, a weekend (and a bit) of food, drinks and more food and drinks. Here are a few of the Barmaids in their dirndl from Munich Brauhaus. Prost! More tomorrow.

Took this last week with the little QX10. The lights, I think are from this really cool thing called a LEDCube. Check it out if you can, it's pretty special. More tomorrow.

Late nights. Too many of them in a row, and it's screwing up my 365. Missed out on posting yesterday, but I did mange to take this tonight, while on my way back. This is from the seedier park of town. More tomorrow.

Really starting to like this camera. Nothing to shout about in terms of lens, sensor or anything, but it's portability... it fits in my pocket!
Beats lugging around my full frame with its lens... well for now at least. More tomorrow.
Monday, November 10, 2014
Still pretty much homebound for the weekend, would rather be outside shooting on a day like today, but it was not to be.
Here's one from the city a little earlier in the year. More tomorrow.

Here's another shot from Thursday's workshop. Got to say that I felt middle inadequate using the tiny QX10 next to the new Hasselblad H5... but what do you do if you don't have a spare 20+ grand. More tomorrow.
Was immobile today, so not much moving. Here's something from the night before. Took this at a workshop... couldn't resist sneaking a picture, even if it was with my little QX10.
On another note, I heard the news that the Rolling Stones had cancelled their concert at Hanging Rock. While I'm sad for those that will miss the show, I'm also really thankful I managed to catch the one on Wednesday. And I've set up an Album on Flickr of the shots I took on the night. Let's hope Mick gets well quick, so others won't miss out too. More tomorrow.

Ladies and gentlemen, The Rolling Stones. My sister pointed out to me that we've seen them at least once in every decade starting from the Voodoo Lounge Tour in '94. And they're still going strong, still putting out one heck of a show and still end songs like they we're jamming. Love it. This shot is with Mick Taylor on guitar and Darryl Jones on bass (the man who got my job). More tomorrow.
