  • Haven't ventured to this #beach in a couple of yrs so was very exciting and unexpected to come across this really cool little #beachhut. Underneath it I found @manlyseaeagles football. We decided it was good karma to leave it there in case it wasn't actually lost and belonged to the kids who look like they have lots of fun there.  Featured are Emily, Samuel and their dad Stuart.

  • Like a kid in the #Canon candy store... with the latest super wide angle lens and #600EX-RT #speedlites (plus on camera trigger to set them off) to go with my new #5DMarkIII #SLR camera.

This wide angle 16-35mm F.4 with Image Stabilizer is really sharp right out to the edges of the image captures.  It's going to be helpful on my next #PaddingtonTerrace #interior shoot (ie: may not be quite so squished up against corners of petit #kitchens and bathrooms trying to fit everything in frame). @canonaustralia #professionalphotographer #Manly #Sydney #commercialphotography

  • #Interiors shoot of a newly #renovated 2 bedroom #terrace rental property in #Paddington.  Simone and I got to play with the @CanonAustralia #TiltShift 17mm f/4L lens designed for #architecturalphotography which means you get low distortion on the edges of your image (ie the walls don't curve or distort when you use the tilt). It's also got awesome edge-to-edge sharpness.  Sounds a bit nerdy, but it's veeeery cool! #Sydney  #canon_official #photographer #Manly
