Sydney's Vivid Festival starts now! If you're curious about what it's all about, why not check out what last year's festival was like? This was shot in time-lapse, when on a whim, I decided to fly up one Saturday morning to experience the festival!

A note to all first timers... after 6:30pm, the ferries to Circular Quay become very full. Plan to get off the ferry at Darling Harbour, and walk from there, or catch a train either to Central, or Wynyard and walk to Circular Quay.

Ponyfish Island
Ponyfish Island is a bar in the middle of the Yarra River in Melbourne, underneath the Southbank Footbridge. It is seen here as the Sun sets.

The Space Wagon
This was very much shot on earth... a the top of the Crown Range Road just outside Queenstown a few nights ago. A clear night, and crisp, cool conditions made it perfect for viewing both the Milky Way, and the Aurora Australis (the green glow on the right hand side). The rental car is a 2014 #Toyota   #RAV4  which served as transport for this otherworldly destination!

Sometimes, a commercial-like shot for a vehicle just comes together by virtue of being there!

The Mailbox at the end of the Universe
Smack bang on the highway, yet usually driven right past by, Irishman's Creek sheep station is about 14km southwest of Lake Tekapo and is blessed with the same dark skies that this region is famed for. A few nights ago, I stopped here in the setting moonlight, braving temperatures of -2°C to capture this image of one of my favourite little landscape locations from this part of the world. While the full arm of the Milky Way had risen, its position relative to this mailbox wasn't quite  as perfect as I would have hoped for... so I had to make do with what I had.

Lake Hawea on an Overcast Fall Morning
Just having come back a really fun trip to New Zealand, it has taken me a little under 5 hours to copy over 500GB of data from my portable hard drive across onto my machine. With over 17,000 images, it is going to be a slow process for me to go through my handiwork. This is one of the first that I have had the chance to post-process... Lake Hawea, viewed from an elevated overlook on the way to the glaciers.
More over the next few days...

On the 4th of April 2015, Melbourne witnessed the third in a series of lunar eclipses that made up a lunar tetrad. During the eclipse, the moon turned red - often referred to by many as a Blood Moon. This time-lapse short film was made from 3,066 individually photographed images shot using a Sony A7R with a 28-70mm lens, a Sony A6000 with a 55-210mm lens, and a Canon 6D with a 70-200mm lens. The entire lunar eclipse lasted 5 hours and 58 minutes. Here it is for your viewing pleasure in under 2 minutes!

Introduction
A thirty-something empathetic gentleman with a right-brained mind and a left-brained soul, who is torn between minimalism and his love for cool toys. I love to travel and I love my home - and each one increases my love for the other. An IT geek at heart, and a pragmatist to the core, who loves to swim and bike, but hates to run. Loves dogs and is developing a fondness for cats after getting to know them better. I like to take photographs of landscapes and cityscapes. I specifically enjoy creating short films using the technique of time-lapse photography.

I've had a mixed experience with the Elizabeth Street store, in spite of having been their customer for several years. In the past, I dealt with a salesman who was really good to work with, My most recent interaction with them has been underwhelming. Around the 21st of Feb. 2015, I purchased a Sony HDR-PJ820 camcorder. The salesgirl who ended up selling me the camera was borderline unprofessional and rude, cutting me off mid sentence until I reminded her that as a customer, she needed to let me finish and hear me out if she was interested in making a sale. At the time of purchase, she attempted to sell me an extended warranty. I reminded her of Australian Consumer Law, and that a camera priced at around $1,400 was covered by a statutory warranty. The receipt also stated Ted's after-purchase policy of covering defects. Within 3 weeks, the camera body began to warp. I take very good care of my gear. The camera had been used either on a tripod, or hand held, while being placed in an enclosed cupboard for storage, or in a padded bag. I took it back to make a warranty claim. When I explained the history to the sales representative whom I dealt with when making the warranty claim, he attempted to dismiss it, stating that it had been dropped. I pointed out that there were no scuff marks on the body that would have come from a drop. He offered to get a consultant to look at it. I told him that while he was free to do so, I had been with the camera throughout, while neither he nor his consultant had, and that he needed to lodge the warranty claim. He somewhat begrudgingly lodged it. This happened on a Friday or Saturday in late March. The following week he called and told me that the consultant had evaluated it as the result of a drop. I advised that I needed that in writing, and that I would be following up with Consumer Affairs. He then offered to send it off to the manufacturer for a further look, and that it would take a few weeks, while also stating that they would have to wait and see what the manufacturer said. This entire interaction left me with the feeling that he was attempting to discourage me from lodging a warranty claim. I called in early April to follow up. The individual who answered the phone advised me that they had not heard anything back, and that it would take another few weeks. I advised them that I was travelling overseas for a couple of weeks, and that should anything follow up occur while I was away, that they would need to leave a message, and that I would come back to follow up on my return in early May. When I returned, I had not received any messages. I called up on the afternoon of the 12th of May to follow up. The individual who answered the phone took my claim number and said that they would call me back shortly. They never did. The following morning, I called again. The gentleman who answered the phone took my claim number, and assured me of a call back in the following 15 minutes. He called back as he promised and advised me that they were going to replace the unit with a new one. I went in later that day and picked up my replacement unit. While completing the transaction, the sales consultant attempted to sell me an extended warranty again. I reminded them of Australian Consumer Law and the effect of a Statutory Warranty. This exercise left me without the use of my new camera for the better part of six weeks, and cost me the GST refund that I would have claimed while travelling overseas with my camera. In summary, the issues I felt I faced with the staff at this store are: a. they were high handed, borderline rude and unprofessional. b. they attempted to discourage me as a customer from making a genuine warranty claim. c. they attempted to mislead me as a customer about a warranty by suggesting that the issue was something that was unlikely to be covered. d. they failed to follow up with me as the customer when the warranty claim had been fulfilled. e. they did not to return calls. The experience has left me to reconsider whether I will take my business back to this store.

*Leased in 10 days flat!* I'd called Sarah at MICM to assist me in leasing out my 2-bedroom/1-bathroom/1-carpark property in Southbank. I had been living here and was moving out. During my initial phone conversation with her, I provided Sarah with details on when it was going to become available, and the lead-up of activities to the property becoming vacant. Sarah came prepared to our first meeting, outlining what MICM's strategy would be to lease my property. She listened carefully to gain an understanding of what was important to me in a tenant as a landlord. She also set out expectations on what the current market commanded, and offered attracted options on promoting my property so that it gained sufficient visibility among potential renters. She also observed that I would require support to have the apartment cleaned and made suitable for presenting to prospective tenants, and made arrangements to have cleaners come in within minutes of my movers having moved out the last piece of furniture, while being personally present to handle the handover of keys. The property was ready to be viewed within hours of me having vacated it. Within 10 days, and three open-for-inspection sessions, she had secured a tenant and had a lease signed. I couldn't have asked for more support and a better outcome!
