Hope everyone has had a FANTASTIC Australia Day!
It’s not often I get a Saturday off, I am normally out every Saturday photographing some awesome wedding but when a finally do get a Saturday off I jump around in excitement.. the next Saturday I have off will be 12 Saturdays time, so I made sure this Saturday, especially been Australia Day was a day full of fun.
Here are some photos from what I go up to (stolen from Arlene’s blog – photos by arlene)
I took my beautiful new 24mm along with me to arl’s house so she could continue on with what we got up to the other day – can you guess which one I am?
We headed down to the beach for swims, when we came back we decided to see how many people we could fit in my paddling pool – it was a tight fit! Then we rode bikes on a 5km mission in the hot hot sun, then paid a taxi $60 to take me to another friends party on the completely other side of Perth, and went to sleep very late the following day. It was a awesome Australia Day! =)
This is another photo I took while I was traveling throughout India in 2006. It was taken in Delhi near the main train station in central Delhi. This photo completely sums up India to me, a crazy intense ride. I cant wait to go back again, hopefully going to go back next year. Visiting China again is definitely on the cards too.
The other day I ordered the Canon 24mm 1.4 Lens and the courier man just dropped it off.. Arlene and myself squealed with delight and ripped the packaging open and played with it for about 30 minutes straight… below are some of the interesting things we got up to!
This was taken in 2006 on my world travels. I spent a month traveling throughout India and this photo was taken at Karnimata in Deshnok, Rajasthan. Karnimata is a hindu temple that worships rats (as you can see all the little rats feeding in the background, and some dead ones too) – it was one of the most fascinating places I visited in all my travels and was a real eye opener. This boy came up to me in the temple and stared at me for ages. I think he was fascinated with my cameras. I had my mamiya 6 medium format film camera with me and my digital SLR – he could not understand how he could see himself in the back of one camera and not the other. He was a sweet kid, I have lots of photos of him =)
