Happy New Year!

I was lucky enough to have a prime position to see the New Year fireworks on Sydney Harbour last night. What a show!

There are times when you just can’t be bothered to lug your camera gear around. And you don’t always need to with most phone cameras these days. It’s hard to see what you’re shooting sometimes, but here’s a few shots, mostly taken around Sydney, that have somehow turned out okay.

(Clockwise from top left) Cliff near North Head, Sydney; Natimuk Lake (Wimmera, Victoria) wet for the first time in a decade; kite-surfer off Manly Beach; safely anchored in Pittwater, NSW; Sydney Opera House; anchored in Sugarloaf Bay, Sydney; Ropes on the Manly Ferry; Noah’s Ark at Biennale, Cockatoo Island, Sydney; (centre) Freshwater beach closed in rough surf.

Sculpture by the Sea 2012

It’s that time of year again: Sculpture by the Sea along the Bondi Beach to Tamarama coastal walk. It’s a great opportunity for amateur photographers and we were out in force this morning. I’m working on taking shots that don’t need to be cropped or photoshopped. (Because that’s cheating, right?)
