LOL, it was over a month ago you silly fool, and you’re only posting these now. That’s what you’re thinking isn’t it? If that’s what you’re thinking I wouldn’t blame you, I understand that not everyone thinks on the same level as me. Clearly I was waiting for the right time, when all the dust had settled and no one was posting about it any more so that I would have my time in the sun.
And that time is now, I didn’t take any great photos just whatever I could muster carrying the Fuji X100 around, I saw a lot of people carrying big tripods around but I had been out the whole day so that was not really an option. For a person like me (who doesn’t like big crowds), we probably went at a pretty bad time, it was about 10-11pm so it was pretty crowded and just walking down Swanston Street was a hassle. It would’ve been better to wander around at 2 AM or something with the streets empty to get a good look at the light shows on. With a pregnant partner we were never going to make it very far with those crowds so we left without seeing too much. Maybe next year we will get out at a better time, or we’ll be at home trying to (catch up on) sleep :D. Oh and be short to keep up as I follow up this post with my latest installment of Moomba fireworks photos, they should be up very shortly ;).
Yes, I know it’s now the middle of October, but these pictures were taken in September, and I’ve only just finally managed to finish processing them and now to upload them. Anyway, the first is of Flinders Street Station taken from across the road in front of the church (it might be St. Paul’s I am not sure), I had the camera sitting on top of some kind of metallic cabinet.
The last two pictures I took at the Tesselaar Tulip Festival out at Silvan on the opening weekend, it didn’t rain, but it was a bit overcast which is good for accurate and even lighting but I didn’t get that great warm light at the end of the day either.
I’m not sure if I will have an October photo post just because the past three or four weeks were been spent training for the Around the Bay ride, so I haven’t really had a chance to get out and take photos around the place, hopefully I will have some motivation to go and take some photos during the rest of Spring before I head off to Wintry Fire and Icy Land.
