Yesterday was my birthday so Laura and I went out to all my favourite places. It turned into a big photo trip as well. Was one of my favourite days to date.

365 project

Monday, June 14th, 2010

After a few days on flickr, i discovered an idea called the 365 project. The idea is that you take, at least, 1 photo a day to document where you were and what you were doing on that day. I decided I would do my own version with my iPhone (I finally got one), Hipstamatic, and my flickr photo stream. So far I have taken a bunch of photos over the last week and have at least found one I am happy with each day.

These photos were taken out and about round Gymea. First is my shadow (I don’t usually have the shape of Grimace) and the second is a photo taken of graffiti on the walkway up to Bianco Nero.

Since moving to Gymea, I have found this great cafe called Bianco Nero – amazing coffee. I am there daily – it’s my Cheers. I tool this photo sitting at my regular spot one afternoon.

A few days later I was on my way to a meeting in Cronulla for a meeting at HAM, another great cafe which I did the logos/design for. I got out of the car and was struck by how great the sky looked behind this unit block.

sunshine & rain

Monday, June 14th, 2010

Recently I bought Hipstamatic for my iPhone and I am addicted. I have always loved the lomo style of photos and supposedly the original hipstamatic cameras were very similar.  This program replicates your photos in the same style. You can choose from different lenses and films etc – Too much fun.

It also means that I end up taking a lot more photos which is great. Since moving into our new unit i have been going crazy. The first is a shot I took on our balcony with the sunshine streaming in, and the second is down at Cronulla beach a few mornings earlier where it continually rained all week.

Another big step in my geek life is signing up to flickr. I always thought flickr was a fad that would die out, but since I am taking so many photos I have found it really great. It is like the facebook between photographers (amateur, professional and guys with an iPhone).

It’s my Dad’s birthday today – he is very much to thank for my love of photography.
Happy Birthday Dad.
