2010_11_06 McLaren Vale vineyard walk

Decided to go for a vineyard and cellar door photo shooting on a weekend although the clouds don’t looked so kind as i got closer and closer to McLaren Vale, a town famous for its wineries, second to Barossa Valley. Many people visit this place due to its close proximity to the town and located in between Adelaide and Victor Harbour (relax and beaches). However, it took me 1 and half hours and careful planning of time to get here!!!

The slightly overcast day somehow created a perfect shooting days as i’m pretty much shooting more close up rather than landscape photos, so the overcast kinda brought up the colours and did not cast shadows on my subjects!!!

Once i got to the town, it’s all walking and shooting!!!

Saw these lavenders at bloom with all the bees hovering around, catching them on the shot required patience, haha.

Then it’s all vineyard shooting all the way…

TITANIC in Melbourne!!! 2010-10-13

Here on another mission again…

This time my mission finished way earlier than what i expected, so i have ample time till my flight back to Adelaide. Hence i walked around the CBD for some photo shooting, it’s a rainy day, something new for me, as i have not seen the busy Melbourne CBD in rain particularly in the morning where commuters were scurrying to their work place to avoid the rain.

It’s a foggy morning…without the right light, everything appeared dull, haha. Nothing really worthy of shooting.

Went back to the laneways famous for graffiti, in the overcast day, the colours of the graffiti stand up evenly and pretty well, hence a few shots :). Quite like the contrast of the pure white old scooter in front of the red demonic like graffiti of the shop, haha.
