Another month has flown past, and although I have been light on pictures lately I have been taking photos. This week I have double treats, to make up for last week’s lack of photos. Firstly, there is the collection of images taken over the course of November for my 365project.
Secondly, as part of the double treat are some images that I took early on this week as a farewell to one of my lenses which has been passed on to a new owner.
As always, click through to larger view and make sure you have a look at the rest of the album.
Another quiet week, and unfortunately no opportunities to finish that film in my cameras. However I did receive some new toys this week, and despite the lack of time I managed to break out the macro lenses and the flashes to indulge in some product photography.
First up we have a Creative Sound Blaster USB X-Fi Digital Music Premium HD (aka X-Fi HD).
Then I also managed to take some pictures of my new Cobb & Co Black Maple watch.
Another busy week, another wasted week. Another week where photography has eluded me. Hopefully I will finish off some film soon and have some more pictures to share, sadly this week there won’t be anything. If you need a photo fix then head over to my 365 Project for the random images captured during the week.
Firstly, I have to apologise for my missed post from last week, I have been away from home and on the other side of the country, taken there by my PhD. One of the upsides of attempting a PhD are the places that conferences take you. In my case my first conference took me to Perth and Fremantle. I am sure no one wants to hear about the conference, but I did manage to squeeze some photography amongst the days of talks and presentations. I think I may have made a few mistakes with my choice of gear on this trip (Nikon D700, 24-70mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, Voigtlander 20mm f/3.5, Fuji Klasse W, Olympus Mju II, tripod and filters) as I found the full frame digital cumbersome and overly heavy, not really making up for it’s annoyance by making the most of the photographic opportunity. In retrospect I would have been better served with a mirrorless system that I could carry with me to the conference and not missed the snaps that I felt that I did. However the two film compacts did a great job, and put a big smile on my face with the prospect of having both colour and monochrome available at hand.
Perth and Fremantle caught me out photographically, there were opportunities, but at the same time there were many missed opportunities. The distinct lack of clouds meant that I felt that I wasted plenty of time trying to capture the sunset, but the dizzying array of street art kept me happy (and wishing I had packed the 17-35 in place of the 24-70). Too much talking, here are some digital images (film to come):
Another month has flown past and now comes the difficult part of sitting back and reviewing the images to see what has worked and what has not over the last month. A few things have happened in my life, a change of job (this weekend job pays better than the last one) and in many ways a new resolve to put the many cameras that I own to good use, especially the film cameras that I have treasured so much but have used so little.
In many ways I have felt that I have not been able to take enough time to take photos but the renewed vigor to which I have applied myself to put to use the various cameras at my disposal left me with many short sets of photos, so this month’s review is in fact quite image heavy.

Whilst I have not been able to take many photos this week I cannot complain as I spent today out and about taking photos. As a treat I left the Nikon’s at home and took their cousin the Fujifilm S5 Pro out for the day. This camera is an awesome tool that I do not employ often enough, but when I do it constantly reminds me why I should take it out more often, it simply has this amazing colour palette and dynamic range.
Today’s images were from the QVB (Queen Victoria Building) in the Sydney CBD followed by images from the annual Sculptures By The Sea exhibition at Bondi Beach.
