Very quick photo of a Melbourne laneway before i head off overseas for three weeks. This quirky detail was found down a laneway which housed a hole in the wall coffeeshop and the back of a asian restaurant. I love the little suprises that you can find in these laneways within the Melbourne CBD. This will be the first of many shots i will be able to post.
Quick photo straight out of the camera with very little editing in Adobe RAW apart from the conversion to black and white and slight contrast adjustments. Found the Melbourne markets fascinating and was very disappointed when i didn't get to discover the meat and fish produce sections. Highly recommend anyone touring Melbourne to check out these markets. They are located in the North West corner of the Melbourne CBD and are easily accessible by tram or on foot. I hope to post some more images before i leave for India.
This image of pocket watches on chains was taken on my Sigma 50mm at F1.4 at 1/40 Second. The shallow depth of fields works well to highlight the second watch face while bluring the remaining watches.
A few weeks ago Perth was rocked by the news of yet another Shark attack this time at one of Perths most iconic tourist destinations, Cottesloe beach. As the office is only minutes away and could hear the news and search helicopters overhead, i headed down with the camera unsure of what would be happening.
It surprised me as it seemed business as usual, though this was Bryn's bathers had been discovered at the bottom of the ocean (which would force the immediate closure of the beach).
This photograph is a 10 image stitch which has some nice cloud formations (perfect shark attack weather) as well as reflections of the sun bouncing of the glorious Indian ocean. When you blow this image up you can see that below the Indiana Tearooms is closed off to police and there is both a helicopter and police boat within the scene.
The scene is nicely book-ended by the Tearooms and the boy gazing out to the ocean.
