A trip to The Little Drift in Wilsons Prom yesterday. It was windy, with sand blowing from time to time requiring to cover the camera and lens. After a couple of hours the initial footprints were just about gone. Not as spectacular as The Big Drift, but well worth a wander around.

We did a one location, one hour, one shot photo walk in the city on the weekend. Not that any of these are from that but rather taken whilst wandering around trying to satisfy the first mentioned stuff.

 

Orange scooter in Degraves street. Really wanted it to rain some more but it didn't happen.

Centre Place on a wet Sunday. I did have to wait a fair while until most of the people were walking in the other direction so maybe this would qualify for the shoot.

Fruit stall on Swanston Street and yes I did ask if I could take the pic. Perhaps this is his usual take my pic pose. Works for me.

This piece about the pursuit of the latest kit vs raw creativity is worth a read. Entertaining and a little contraversial.

http://davidduchemin.com/2015/06/the-place-of-craft/

 

If you want controversial you need to turn to Guru Ken.

 

http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/notcamera.htm

 

Well worth a read and both guys are of course right.

 

I'm more than happy to use a mid range FF body and mid range glass in the knowledge that the equipment I have now far exceeds my abilities.

The "Center Place" photo is magnificent @@KenTripp

 

Thanks @@Sime and I've just submitted it as my real entry in the one hour shoot walkabout as opposed to this one I submitted earlier.

 

fed1.jpg

 

With the caption of "A long wait but eventually I got the planned candid shot of some Imperial Stormtroopers in Fed Square."

 

Not sure they got the joke.

 

For the Centre Place one I was trying to get a shot where most of the the people, in the foreground at least, were walking away from the camera. Took a while.

@@Ken Tripp, I though I recognised that laneway. Didn't happen to see these sorry souls about did you?  I took this pic about a year ago, it was a quick snap from the hip.

I went down to Altona Beach at low tide this morning to see what was about.  It was freezing cold, the birds were a long way away, the sand was soft and slushy and after half an hour I gave up.  There really wasn't much about so I didn't waste my digital film.  Got this one but it's nothing special   Camera is D750, Sigma 150 - 500, F6.3, 1/640 sec, 500 mm and ISO was 160 (thanks @@mickj1 for the settings tip.  The bird was about 40 metres away.

Disappointed today, it looks as though the parks staff have been doing a bit of a clean up, and many of the logs with good fungi on were moved and/or cut up. There was still plenty around, but nothing I haven't already photographed this season.

 

On the way home I called into Grants picnic ground, with the light fading I managed to get a few snapshots.

I went down to Lake Borrie today in bright sunshine.  By the time I got to anything decent the clouds had come in from the west and the light was gone.   Still, with a little post processing I managed to get something worthwhile.  I have decided though that photographing small birds or flying birds is for good light only.  Also, birds more than 30 metres away are going to be stretch.

 

Here's some bids plus an image of clouds and reflections.

@@mickj1 how far were you from the eagle.  Also, any inside info on your settings?

Probably about 50-60m. Shot in RAW, full frame (cropped a bit in PP), at 500mm, aperture priority, F6.3, ISO 800 (fixed) and shutter what ever the camera threw up: 1/1000 - 1/1250, sec for these 2 pics. I had to lighten the pics a bit in PS because the bird was silhouetted.

 

cheers

I had a big afternoon and evening wandering around Melbourne yesterday. It was a pity about the breeze and cloud, but I still managed to get a lot of snapshots.

Hi Minty, was that DJB (pic #4) you spotted down at the Seafarers yesterday? 

 

What a hat and groovy glasses he has!

On the subject of hamburger vans (@spearmint) my son took this.  Don't know how he does it but he really manages to capture much more interesting images than me.

Here's one of mine from a city walk. I didn't even notice the smokers when I took it but it ended up being the only interesting thing in the image.

It was actually quite quiet down that part of town. I was surprised. There were plenty of people inside the bars, and restaurants, but very few out walking.
