PMA and hunger

Just two for last week.

I went along to PMA on the weekend, but didn't want to be another one of those guys who shoot everyone else's models with everyone else's lighting and then pass it off as their own.

It was a really great experience however, besides a couple of rude people.

I'll likely write more about it on my actual blog, but for now here are photos from last week.

I ate a lot. =D

Office and weekend geekery

I've been really excited about starting at my new job, so a lot of these pics are those from my new workplace.

I'm not way up in a tower, but there's a reasonable view from the nearby window. As long as I have some light, I'm pretty happy since I don't really stare out the window much.

I met this chap on the weekend at Supanova. Sweet get up. I can't even begin to imagine how long it must've taken to make.

At work there's a Space Marine! Foursquare tells me I should hug him because he gets lonely, but I'm yet to do so. Also Street Fighter, but I sucked when I was a kid, so I'm going to assume I still suck.

Window cleaners are making their rounds around the building. We thought it might be funny to shoot them with Nerf blasters, but thought we should be a bit more responsible. Right.

Left from my predecessor, I have no idea what's going on here, but only noticed them after my first week had passed.

The view from above Supanova during the weekend. I wrote a write up on my blog if you're interested.

Cake! My significant other made an awesome cake for my Dad's early birthday. Tastes and looks super awesome!

Candy, a new job and urban messages

I left my old job this week. Going to miss the people there, but I'm also looking forward to some new challenges. I'll be based in the city proper now, so with any luck, I'll have more photos actually from Sydney.

My local park has a lot of these sort of messages. I've shot a number of concrete sculptures here before and I sometimes wander down for a bit of inspiration. I love my suburb. It's only small, but it's full of creatives.

Someone is a wheatbix kid.

Meet Ginger. She's a rescue. My sister took in a whole bunch of kittens that didn't look like they would survive. She's still pretty shy, but when she warms up to you she's all purry. That's Oreo in the background, another rescue. Crazy cat.

If you're ever in Manly, check these guys out (if you can find them!). I walked past them twice before seeing their tiny sign.

Mmmm... Not cheap, but man these were good. Strawberries and cream might be my fave.

Trying my hand at street. I've yet to get it right (if there is a right way of doing it).

Galeries Victoria. I've often wondered why there's only one "L" in Galeries.

Hello there winter and er, christmas too

Over at this food court I sometimes eat at there are christmas decorations that look like they've never been taken down since they were put up several years ago.

One is a strange possum-type thing and another is a pair of angels blowing their, um trumpets.
