The other day I mentioned that I have a loan of the Canon 5D Mark IV and the 16-35mm 2.8 lens. I am trying them out with long exposures to see what I think. I am always on the look out for new gear to see what I can do with it, and, of course, I am looking around for a new camera to do long exposure photography with.

Yesterday I had all good intentions of posting a photo and then time got away from me. So here is one that I took yesterday instead. A long exposure from Banyule Flats, taken with the Nikon D7500 I have on loan at the moment.

The city of Melbourne is one of my favourite places to photograph. Though I am always trying to find new ways to do it, sometimes, I just you just have to go with it and see what I can get. I am understanding more and more what I want to do with my work, what I want to show.

When Pam and Mike first arrived in Melbourne I did spend some time with them showing them around the city. I took them to Docklands and we came back via the river. I do love showing people my city.

While at the Docklands we had lunch at Mama Rumaan, one of my new favourite restaurants down there, then afterwards when we walked out we noticed the wonderful reflections in the water. It was perfect for some long exposures.

I’ve spent the last two days with my Californian friends and it has been so much fun showing them around Melbourne. I am also really excited about our trip down to the Great Ocean Road over the next few days as well.

I’m not sure what I will do with the blog while I’m away, but I will try and get a couple of updates done.

The other day I made another trip to the National Gallery of Victoria to see the Winter Masterpiece exhibition, Van Gogh and the Seasons. The first time I went it was so crowded you couldn’t see it, let alone enjoy it. I’m happy to say the advice I was given about going on a weekday and early proved to be true. While there were still many people, it wasn’t so crowded and it was much better to see. We did have to wait at some paintings to see them, but it wasn’t long, and was expected really, as with any exhibition.

Public Speaking

Ten years ago I was terrified of doing this, but it seems I have gotten over it. Recently I was asked to do a presentation to a local chapter of Probus. They were photography enthusiasts and the guy organising it, Don, thought they would be interested in my style of photography. I didn’t hesitate and just said yes.
