Out at the casino this evening and it was full on Brazilian in anticipation of the first World Cup round of 16 games.

Had the 50mm on and took a montage shot just for fun. I'm posting this at the end of full time and approaching extra time... we'll see what happens. More tomorrow.

Being wanting to post this for a while, but just wanted to get the treatment just right. I wanted to treatment of the shot to mirror, in some ways, the BSA in the shop. More tomorrow.

With the World Cup on, I completely lost track of True Blood day. Well here's my little homage to the start of the final season of True Blood.

Need to sleep now, only 3 hours of sleep before the last group games. More tomorrow.

Few minutes to go before the game starts. It's been a very restful Saturday... I've been catching up on a week of very little sleep.

Anyway, today's shot is one of Anna in from of my favourite background. More tomorrow.

Haven't picked up the camera for fun in almost a week. I did have to take several shots for work, but for fun... not so much. Some things just have to give during the World Cup.

Apart from the shots from the pier last weekend, I also have lots shots from the Miss universe contestants shoot. So here's one of the very beautiful Danni. More tomorrow.

Can't remember when I took this, why I took it or why I never posted it before. Anyway I didn't shoot today so here's my contribution for the day. More tomorrow.

Shot from another pier, this time from St Kilda Pier. Posting this during the Australia v Holland game, so it has to be quick. Yes and the significance of the name on the boat is not lost. C'mon Aussie! More tomorrow.

Another from the pier. Took a while to get the 3 waves in shot. It's even cooler in Black and White. Really lucky I took quite a lot of shots at the pier. Enough to maybe last me a week during the World Cup. More tomorrow.

165 - 14/6/14

2nd day of the World Cup and my sense of time has just been shot to pieces. I thought my weekend was over and went to sleep early to be awake for the matches before going to work... Only thing is there is no work on Sunday! It's like I gained a day or lost a Saturday night.

Whatever the case, today's shot was taken during a walk along the beach. Took this at the pier as this brave runner was approaching the end of her run. More tomorrow.

On the eve of the world cup, I feel like a kid on X'mas eve. On the down side, I don't think the next month will be very productive on the shooting side, the work side, the sleep side, actually anything that's not football related will have to take a backseat. I love this time every four years. More tomorrow.

Spent most of the long weekend putting this together. Not the shot, but the guitar. Finally got all the gold parts in and new pickups... all that's missing is my new gold paisley pick guard, which is designed but just waiting to be printed. Shouldn't be too long before this butterscotch Squire telecaster is completely done. And it already plays like a dream. More tomorrow.

Strobist info: Sony HVL F60M with Lumodi Beauty Dish with diffuser, camera right about 4 feet from the guitar camera right.

Having gone through all the shots from yesterday, (and they number into the thousands) I think I might post some of the outtakes for the next few days.

So here's Teegan during the shooting of her applying moisturiser. It's amazing how she can make sure a mundane task look so good. More tomorrow.
