A busy weekend …

Wow, another weekend has flown past, but it has been a nice one.

Friday night we went into the city to go shopping for my birthday and Kate’s birthday, both of which are next week. Both of us were lucky enough to get a nice photography-related present, in Kate’s case a new tripod, and in my case a new lens (a wide-angle Sigma 10-20mm). We had dinner at the RACV Club and later Kate and I headed into Docklands to try out our new toys.

On Saturday morning I had a “Flickr meet”, meeting another local photographer, Nino, for a few hours walking around showing each other some of our favourite places to shoot. Saturday evening we were out to dinner again with friends Kerry and Herb, enjoying a nice meal at one of the little outdoor restaurants in Degraves St in the city.

Today we celebrated our birthdays with family, having lunch at the Sherwood Hunt Club which is very close to our place. Then this evening Kate and I headed out again for some photography to Port Melbourne and St Kilda.

I have to say it has been wonderful to have been out three times on the weekend, enjoying my new hobby, but doing it with others, rather than on my own.

Weight is still under the 75kg target, but only just at 74.8kg – creeping closer.

Here are some photos from this weekends outings, again showcasing what a beautiful city we are fortunate to live in.

    I’m so impressed with your nighttime photography, Andrew! That’s very difficult (said the woman who has trouble getting a steady *daytime* shot. :))

    Nice post. I learn one thing tougher on different blogs everyday.
    It’s going to at all times be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little bit one thing from their store. I’d choose to make use of some with the content on my weblog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a hyperlink in your internet blog. Thanks for sharing.
