A horsepower fix

It seems like it was in a previous life now, I used to own a few classic cars/ go fast toys. Every so often I feel the need to revisit that interest, and with out a Hot Rod show to attend, second best is to catch up with a mate, who own a mechanical/exhaust workshop.Continue reading “A horsepower fix”

Toogoolawah Rodeo

Yesterday. I was lucky enough to get out to the Toogoolawah Rodeo, have not been to a Rodeo in living memory. I managed to get a few decent shots, shooting anything fast moving can be challenging, and with limited lighting, was only really able to succesfully shoot until dark.     Taken with 7D and eitherContinue reading “Toogoolawah Rodeo”

Still going through the old photos from 2009, these all were taken with probably less then a months ownership of my first DSLR. I probably did not learn to use it properly until over a year later ( sometimes I think I still do not know what I am doing) This photo was taken onContinue reading “Revisiting the past ” The Road to Lake Eyre “”

Puffing Billy

I was down in Melbourne in October for a Christening, while we were down there took the opportunity to go to Belgrave just under a hours drive outside of Melbourne. I love old things, and especially old mechanical things, so what could be better then an Old Steam Train. We got a good vantage point toContinue reading “Puffing Billy”

450D/50 Photo 10 Sepia Brisbane

Went out ot get some “Bakery” bread, and stopped at Bartleys Hill Lookout for a quick shot of Brisbane, no clouds to add interest to the sky, and sun reflecting a bit to strongly off some buildings to work in colour, so a quick conversion, and I have a “old style” photo, I am happyContinue reading “450D/50 Photo 10 Sepia Brisbane”
