Hardware Lane to Degraves Street, Melbourne, at Night

Having A Camera All The Time…

I needed to head to Melbourne to get some more memory and iTunes cards – I have video shoot, and I can’t run out of memory, and there’s a special on iTunes cards, which I can use to buy Aperture 3 at a lower price. In any-case, I took my new best friend, old X100. Yes, my Friday night best friend is a camera. So, no flash, no tripod, and very little light and these are a couple snaps I got.

As for the colour treatments, they are razzed up with the new Aperture 3 preset called Toy Camera. Some of the shots are pretty dark, but i prefer more blacks than too much noise. Many of these shots were at 3200 ISO; any higher and they really fall apart.

That solar flare is real - not some dodgy Photoshop job from the late 90's.

The Flinders Street end is quite the dinner hot-spot. Good food and great atmosphere with live bands (generally background music) during summer.

Tram Stop to City

One of those iconic Melbourne landmarks, that are all over the tram networking. They are not making new ones, so these will slowly but sure become a thing of the past
