Sunsets with the big ‘un

Having all this time is quite handy, so one evening, Anja and I went down to the beach so we could take sunset photos and I could teach her to do the movement pan/intentional camera movement/motion shots.

We had a great time and the look on her face when she realised that she was creating something that she had no previous idea how to do and that she really loved was amazing.   Read More

work rest and play

It’s been a busy week after the pee-test drama.

I’ve had lots of work to to for a really hard proposal, some interviews and generally me feeling like I need a weekend really badly.  Didn’t really get an Australia Day at all cos I was too busy with trying to create project plans and statements of work out of thin air.

Anyway, blah blah.

It’s been interesting though – I got offered the job for the place I had to pee test for and also at the DIY chain store too.  And it looks like another company that I interviewed with also wants to offer me a job too.

Its nice to be in demand – I’ve had a few interview fails in the last couple of months – not because I’m crap or anything, it’s just I wasn’t right for a particular role.   These other jobs though are right up my street and all for different reasons.

I have some actual concrete news, but I just need to wait for a few days before sharing.

So, thats the life changing work stuff over with.

Now, onto the fun stuff

I went to hang out with the kite surfers again which was cool – they were all a bit drunk as it was Australia Day.  Spent a bit of time chatting to Cesar Portas again – he’s a cool guy – I really want to get the chance to take a lot more shots of him.  One of his friends was out though and having a lot of time

Most folks were packing up and I didn’t get stunning shots like last time.  I’ll be back though.

Its been really hot and humid the last few days as we have a cyclone making its way down from the tropics – its been hard to even move about without melting, but last night after a day of feeling like I was in a sauna, I decided to take some beach shots again as I havent done that in ages.

The sky looked like it might be amazing, but was a complete dud in the end, so I got some cool abstract shots instead.

So there ya go, work and play all in one post 🙂
