I might have gone a wee bit farther than I planned to...
I think I must have missed that left turn at Albuquerque... Gotta love the view though!

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!

Leased in 10 days flat!

I'd called Sarah 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!

Westbound on the Westgate
The bottom end of Lorimer street in 2015 is a somewhat unsung part of Port Melbourne. Yet, the parkland here offers one a sanctuary from the more popular areas of Beaconsfield Parade. This part of town also provides one access to both the Bolte Bridge, and the Westgate Bridge as seen here, carrying traffic across the Yarra and into the Western Regions of Victoria. This was shot with a Sony A6000 using a 10-18mm lens, using a cable release to achieve a nice long exposure. I plan to come back here at sunrise when there are some dramatic clouds on offer.

The Ceiling of Grand Central Terminal

This image was shot with a Sony A6000 using a Rokinon 8mm fisheye lens.

The main concourse of Grand Central Station is covered by this elaborately decorated astronomical ceiling. The original ceiling was conceived in 1912 by French portrait artist Paul César Helleu. The mural was the creation of James Monroe Hewlett, Charles Basing and Paul Helleu.

The starry ceiling is astronomically inaccurate in a complicated way. While the stars within some constellations appear correctly as they would from earth, other constellations are reversed left-to-right, as is the overall arrangement of the constellations on the ceiling. For example, Orion is correctly and beautifully rendered, but the adjacent constellations Taurus and Gemini are reversed both internally and in their relation to Orion, with Taurus near Orion's raised arm where Gemini should be. One possible explanation is that the overall ceiling design might have been based on the medieval custom of depicting the sky as it would appear to God looking in at the celestial sphere from outside, but that would have reversed Orion as well. A more likely explanation is partially mistaken transcription of the sketch supplied by Columbia Astronomy professor Harold Jacoby. Though the astronomical inconsistencies were noticed promptly by a commuter in 1913, they have not been corrected in any of the subsequent renovations of the ceiling.

A Gas Giant and three moons

The Jovian system is perhaps one of the most elaborate in the solar system. Jupiter is easy to spot in the sky. It is very bright and appears noticeably larger than any of the other objects in the night sky, save the moon.

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to gaze upon Jupiter through a telescope for the first time. (There was a busker in Southbank). That night, I got a very good look at the gas giant with its many bands, great red spot, and four major moons.

A couple of nights ago, I decided to try to photograph it, using my Sony A6000 with a 55-210mm lens (effectively, a 315mm lens). What I got were Jupiter, and three moons. I am guessing that the fourth was either behind the planet, or in front of it and obscured by its brightness.

I will never stop wondering about what is out there every time I gaze at the night sky!

Excuse me, but save the moon and Venus. Venus is often much brighter then Jupiter.

Moomba 2015 Fireworks
If it's March in Melbourne, it's Moomba! The carnival rides into town, with heaps of things to do for families, all topped off with a fireworks display at the end of the day. There was a strong wind blowing towards us, bringing all the smoke along with it, which made it less than ideal to photograph the fireworks, but it still made for a great evening to take in one of the many festivals that Melbourne has during this time of year.

This was post-processed using Lightroom and my custom presets for Fireworks. http://debashistalukdar.com/product/lightroom-presets-for-fireworks/

This Saturday Melbourne will turn on the lights and leave them on all night one more time, as White Night returns. This short film was shot last year during the second edition. After having done this twice, I have chosen to sit this year's festivities out to attend to a few other pressing matters. Nonetheless, if you are in the Melbourne area this weekend, and have not experienced this, I highly recommend that you do. 

A word of advice... the hours between 8p.m. and 1a.m. are the busiest. I recommend coming in after 3a.m. and not needing to line up for any of the exhibits.

Have fun!

Midtown Manhattan from the Top of the Rock
This has been lying on my hard drive for several weeks now, and is from my trip to New York City in October. My cousin, sister-in-law and I had headed up to the top of the Rockerfeller Center on a somewhat overcast day. We didn't get the supremely clear views, but did come away with a nice dramatic scene as the lights began to come on around Manhattan.

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.
