Over the weekend I took a trip to Ballarat to visit Sovereign Hill, an outdoor museum showing how it was during the Gold Rush of the 19th century. My daughter wanted to go and see the Winter Wonderland they had there, it was their Christmas in July spectacular.

Camera gear is important if you want to take photos, and over the years you change with what you are taking photos off, along with how.
