Camera Obscura

I've been considering a new camera for some years now. I bit the bullet a few weeks back and purchased a Canon 350D digital SLR with 18-55mm and 75-300mm lenses. Despite a few concerns about size and weight, I'm very pleased with the purchase. Of course this might change in twelve months after I've lugged it around Europe. I've been out on a few expeditions to learn how everything works, so here are the fruits of my labours so far.

These first two are from an early morning trek around the south end of Melbourne.

The Shrine of remembrance. Melbourne.

These two are from an early morning visit to Luna Park to take some 'standards' of a Melbourne icon. The second shot is my favourite so far.

Park Closed

These two are shot with the telephoto lens to capture some fast moving action and try out a Bokeh portrait.

Finally the requisite pet shot.
