You don’t get much chance to take photo of Guy Sebastian, and even doing it for FREE. I happened to be lucky enough to get such an opportunity. There you go our first Australian Idol.

In the middle of the concert is a very small riot. A group of people aren’t happy about people celebrating Australian Day with Brisbane Flood just happened a week ago. I can totally understand why. It is so sad to see on the news and hear from people who lost their loved one, lost everything as their properties were inundated. But what can people do? Sad things happen everyday around the world. Should the whole society stop whenever a tragedy happened?

Winter Festival 2011

Winter Festival is probably the only time to ice skate outside Brisbane City Hall. Unfortunately, ice skating is never one of my favourites and i am just happy to be outside photographing.

While thinking the ordinary skating photos are too common, i notice the round light from the festival actually made the scratch on the ice quite interesting. Under exposed a couple of photo with increased contrast and a bit of processing made the photos below.

Another attraction of the Winter Festival is the ice skating show. A perfect chance to practice. Trying not to use a very fast shutter with everything frozen, and keeping the shutter speed low with some blurred motion but a face that’s sharp enough is totally not easy. Didn’t try any pan shot though is a pity. By the time i was about to do pan shoot the show had already ended…


Pumpkin Festival 2011

The Pumpkin Festival feels like a mini Ekka to me. Numerous of stall, shows can be found at the festival.

Of course this was not the reason we were there. We were there mainly for the famous pumpkin roll. Surprisingly, it looked more interesting than i thought. Unfortunately it was too late for me to registered. May have to come back next year despite the killing 3 hours drive.


Stopped by the Lake Wivenhoe on the way to the Pumpkin Festival and i certainly wouldn’t miss the chance to take some landscape photos.
