Lest We Forget. This year marks 100 years since the original ANZAC troops waded ashore it Gallipoli and Australia faced its baptism of fire. Although a century has passed, today we find that Australia has troops deployed across the globe and the tradition of celebrating the return of our servicemen and servicewomen as relevant and important as ever.
I was lucky enough to snap some images from behind the scenes of the annual ANZAC day march in Sydney.
A few weeks back I managed to sneak off to take some photos. The weather was fine and autumn had started to take hold, bringing with it cooler weather and nice colours. Here are some of the pics.
I finally managed to get away from the madness of the office thanks to the Easter weekend. Unfortunately, the weather did not want to play nice so it ended up being a very wet walk testing the weather resistance of my Nikon. The wet weather did keep the tourists at bay and provided plenty of opportunities to play with reflections.
Another month as blown past, and yet I am still surviving on sporadic internet at home. However the point of this post is to share the pictures that I have been taking to keep my 365 Project afloat. As always these images, more than anything else, show a snapshot into my daily life. Click through for larger and to see the rest of the set.
I have to admit that it has been awhile since I have been able to get out and about with the tripod and a camera. With my partner visiting family and a late finish at work I decided to pack the tripod and go for a roam with the Sony ILCE-7 (aka A7), SEL2470z and the CV12/5.6. This kit was both lightweight, fun and it certainly delivers in the image quality department.
Not too many images, a few from my local coffee shop then some in the city and finally a walk through the park (Hyde Park) made for some easy pictures.
Finally a post that is a bit more timely. It has been awhile since I have been able to give myself the luxury of spending a day taking photos. Luckily a break in the schedule and a burning desire saw me pack a heavier bag (Nikon D700 + 17-35mm + 70-200mm VR + 50mm + 16mm fisheye) and spend the day roaming Sydney’s inner city looking for photos to take. Probably not the most exciting photos but it was nice to be out and about with not too much else to worry about.
