it's sometimes sad to lose friends miles and miles away. but they always will give you good memories, either in the mind or physically.

after seeing this little car intact, it reminds me of some events that other people have gone through. you know who you are.

sometimes things are just so smooth in life.

while others just seem so minimalist in the not-so-minimalist situations, a buffet.

here we see spuds, crumbed calamari, beans, kangaroo steak(yum) & some asian creation.

or maybe the only shining light can be reflected through other things

we can only hope that a there will be a clone, maybe closer than we think so.

a week old

WHOOPS. just a bit late because i've been "busy" with the first week of uni.

had a dinner out at spatchcock a week today - quite the epic thai food!

photoshopped. ISCREAM.

soooo apparently there is a face in the tissue........

cool effects when taking pictures through glasses! it focuses accordingly. notice the difference of the pillar.

There are two things in life that i totally lack:

1. Being told to create something from pure imagination and creativity.

I can draw an item in front of me, take a photo of something and make it look better...

But tell me to draw some character or a representation of something random and i'll just stare into blank space hopelessly as if I were Chuck Norris expecting something to appear randomly.

It's as if I just don't have the circuitry in my head to be able to do it. Sorry, can't explain it - i just sit there and get irritated by the second of my failings.

I hate failing.

2. Dancing

Whether it be at a club or some other place, this is another thing that just doesn't exist in my head.

Taken from the biology sense of things, the genetic print works out quite correctly.

I can't move smoothly at all. The closest thing to moving smoothly is when I'm manoeuvring myself around to dodge people etc. but that ain't really smooth.

This totally explains why I will not enter a club - it's a waste of time for me, I don't enjoy it. And me tipsy is me magnified. Unfortunately that means I'm still stubborn and won't budge to your heckling to get me onto the dance floor. Maybe try and waste your time on someone else instead of me :)

So don't even try to get me to do these things - it will probably frustrate me more :\

Playing an instrument was going to be a third, after giving up on fourth grade piano... but it seems the guitar has made an appearance.......

HA! This is an actual blog post! Not one of my typical "one line here" then photos!

damn you uni!

2 held marks, lectures tomorrow which might be on strike. lame! here we go again, losing my life this semester till november. there won't be as many photos as a result, unfortunately :'(

aquarium and museum

so i was taking around my cousin in the city, and on that rainy day we went to indoor places!


sea turtle, with me on the reflection

hahaha he's almost as photogenic as me

i love the colours that came up here

yeah we lost....

so being at the state of origin was fun, there was more energy than last year's grand final too!

so here's a few snapshots of what i could do using 200mm @ f5.6, ISO1600 - kinda forcing it really

The Spanish Fly

not the actual creature, but the restaurant that i went to with some mates the other night was quite frankly, amazing. what sucked was that the camera was at home HOMAIGAWD *facepalms* i had an inkling i'd want to bring it, but thought against it for some reason..

they serve tapas (small serving-fingerfood-snacky foods) - each of which were quite awesome. I'll list the ones I can remember:
- Meatballs in a tomato base spicy sauce
- Chorizo (this epic tasting sausage)
- Queensland Prawns, with hollandaise sauce. As my friend put it "the prawns and the sauce just melt in your mouth"
- Calamari with an olive based paste
- Sourdough with three dips (beetroot, guac and this other orange thing)
- Portugese style chicken, not really spanish but who cares, it was heaps good.
- Tortellini filled with mushrooms
- Haloumi cheese, the epic deep fried cheese!

also for dessert:
- forgot the name, but a kinda doughnut texture stick with a pure chocolate dip......

a litre of sangria, REAL sangria.

each of the tapas ranged from 10-15 bucks each, not cheap since the portions are small, but what's lost in quantity is made up in quality heads down.

definitely going back there, WITH A CAMERA. i'm sure the other 3 who went with me would agree that it was one of the best dinners we've had in a looong while.

slightly anti-climactic

well, i thought the sunrise was going to be better than we got. maybe it was because of the weather we had, SO COLD. oh well - here's the best pics i was able to get. i might put up the long exposure pics of the water once i edit them, they came in a bit over exposed :(

loving the strong red!

you can tell the different white balances below.
