The best camera is ?

like the man said... whatever you've got in your hand...

my 14 year old has done some really great stuff with her tiny sony point and shoot, she's a little shy about sharing her work but heres a sample.

Low light , high ISO

or why you shouldn't try out your friends D700 when you can't afford to get one.... had a chance to play with a  Nikon D700 a few weeks back in low light conditions, that was pretty incredible..... anyway I just had to try out  my trusty D300 under similar conditions and it just doesn't compare....

D300, f2.8 at ISO 2500, noise reduction in Post

Pieces of Sydney

Been walking around town every lunch time for the last couple of weeks, exploring all the nooks and crannies... am discovering there is more than just the Opera house and the harbour bridge!

Usual weekend sight around Circular Quay

This is a favorite spot for wedding photos. On the weekend you'll see 2 or 3 or 4 wedding groups having their photos taken with the Opera house as a backdrop...
Congratulations!

White water Penrith

Actually flat water, till they get the training wheels off! My eldest daughter decided she wanted to take up kayaking on white water, so she's enrolled in a beginers course at Penrith Whitewater Stadium , great fun!

The smoking room

I pass by this alley way near my office every so often , everytime I see a number of people having a smoke... each one having their own spot on the road, none of them talking to each other....
