Day Light

I had the great opportunity to team up with my good friend Adam and take some time out for a photography session in the city. This is some of the stuff that i came up with. Hope you like!

PLEASE do comment!

I cropped the above photo to highlight extra the amazing pattern seen in the clouds reflected on the building windows seen in the below photo.

Above is a photo of my good friend Adam.

All of these photos were taken in little old Adelaide, Australia

Merry Christmas 2009!

Merry Christmas EVERYONE!
Hope that this year has been an amazing one and that next year is even better!



Tuesday, December 22, 2009


Well at the beginning of December i had to pleasure of making a 3 day trip to Melbourne with my best friends, which would include my amazing Mandy.

I did a bit of shooting, but i generally spent my time sight seeing and not taking as many shots as i would like to...so my bad.
When i head to KL and (hopefully) Singapore in the new year, i really want to get some great shots! I do regret not taking many shots when i was in Melbourne!

So Moving on....the Architecture going on in Melbourne is simply amazing! I have one photo which shows how colourful their thinking is when designing something new there.
The rest of the photos are just general things. Thought id share them with you.

This Building (the one im talking about with the outstanding design) isnt even completed and looks amazing!

This is the view had courtesy Amanda's friend who allowed us to stay there for one of the nights. WHAT A VIEW!!!

And the below is the same view at night. I know its blurry, but i think it gives you an idea of the city lights when your right in the centre of it all.

Oh my goodness! It was amazing too see the amount of trams going around Melbourne...left right and centre. It was crazy but very impressive. You miss one tram...no joke, literally a couple of minutes later, another one which would be heading to the same destination would arrive. Impressive isnt it?...well i guess us Adelaidians get impressed by smallest of things.

Once again...there is some pretty sweet design going on here at the Melbourne Train Station! It looks more impressive when you see it in person. The photo again cannot justify how it looks like when your actually there.

So...This is the Eureka Tower (below). May not Look Big (But trust me it is...) but it does give some very amazing views of the city and outter skirts of the Central Melbourne.

The below photo was taken at the Eureka Skydeck! Oh My Gosh...the view (in person may i say) was astonishing! i was GOBSMACKED at how high we actually were. The Photo does not fully justify the amazing feeling you get while being some 88 stories high.

The photo above is me standing at the same spot where the last photo was taken. If it looks like im peacking it...then yes...u are very correct! i dont think ive been so scared in my entire life. I know it sounds sad of me to say so, but im sure you'd agree if you faced the same thing...where you can feel the building move because of its hight!...and then trying to stand right next to a window.
If that was scary...we had the opportunity to go on....The EDGE! Check this LINK OUT! It was AMAZING and scary at the same time! WOOOOOW
I didnt get any photos from my camera of The EDGE because we werent allowed to, so the link gives u great idea of what im talking about.

And this was the pretty view we got on the way back to Adelaide.

All in all... the trip was great. Met many people... ate lots of food and did a bit of shopping! Wasnt much, if at all cheaper in Melbourne hence why i say "a bit of shopping".

From Gray To Rainbow

Christmas is just around the corner! Amazing how fast this year has gone. I guess its a typical thing to say each year....

...From a mediocre first half of the year at uni in 2009, to a successful second semester...
...From Adelaide to Slovakia to see the rest of the family through the uni mid year break...
...From Adelaide to Melbourne for a 3 day trip with my closest friends at the beginning of December...
...From being single at the beginning of year and then taken by an amazing person!...

ALOT has happened this year...and im sure alot will happen next year. Each year never fails to provide incredible stressors and excitement!...lets just hope majority of it is excitement next year! :P

My lady left for Malaysia a couple days ago. i will meet up with her at KL in 51 days time...So...i guess one thing to look forward to for 2010...is me heading to Malaysia. Too many days for my liking though..but its something that must be done.

Im looking forward to going there because i'll have to chance to do some photography in KL and possibly Singapore if all goes to plan. Also looking forward to the amazing food they have!...and meeting the family! :)

Noughts & Crosses on ICE


Im loving the first photo! Such a strong and pure white! The brown table underneath it adds a great contrast. I was quite impressed with my own work which doesnt happen too often. lol.

So im on university holidays, this should mean that i feeling relaxed, but im stressing out because now im playing for a carols service end of next week. Quite stressful especially when it isnt your kind of music. lol awell its a good growth experience.
Oh oh...and im going to Malaysia through February to meet the rest of Amanda's family & friends and do A LOT of sightseeing! Cannot wait!...oh and i guess shopping as well as its a lot cheaper there.

Lord of the Rings

I went to Melbourne for the first time. It was amazing! Loving the architecture going on there!

But on another note...Mandy suggested i take a close up photo of the rings and the bouncy ball as it is seen in the photo. I had it sitting there like that for some time, so atleast it had good use for a photo. This is what it turned out like. I really enjoy close up photos, so hopefully i'll have a few more in the future. (Good one Mandy ;))

The Bus Trip

I've decided to take a break from the European photos. They will be back soon, but i thought id put up some other stuff mean while.
Mandy and i decided to take the bus to my place after uni...but whats the typical thing that happens? We caught the wrong bus and took us an hour and a half to get to my place when it should have taken us around 40-50minutes....crazy. So...finally everyone had eventually gotten off and we were the only ones left so Mandy thought we could use that as a great opportunity for photos.

So thats the story behind these photos. i bet the driver thought we were weird, but awell...lol



Anyways, Peace Out and Rock N Roll.

Euro PART3

Hello again.
I love these photos because of the harshness of the shading and colours. Being in the caves was an amazing experience. You should try it sometime in Europe!

Im actually not sure of the name of the cave...Terrible i know! But what i can say is that it is in Slovakia. :P How useless. lol

Hope you enjoy these ones. i know i did.

Euro PART2

Hey so here are a few more shots from Kosice, Slovakia. Brilliant city for photos. the photo below is an old but amazing theatre. The inside (i've heard) is really nice with royal red carpets and golden walls and seat frames. But i've sadly never been inside.

(taken in the heart of the Kosice city, Slovakia)

These ones below were taken of a section of the pathway which i found quite fasinating, escpecially in this view.

More Euro coming soon.

Just had my Birthday yesterday so im finally 21. Dont know how to feel. Not that exciting in my view. lol.
