Photographic wanderings

On Boxing Day I took the M8 for a photographic wander along the cliff-tops of Killcare Beach on the track to Bullima in the Bouddi National Park on the Central Coast north of Sydney.

Tomorrow night is NYE 2008. I am preparing Toshikoshi soba, moochi, teriyaki beef and pork belly, vegetable salad and prawns. Long noodles slurped in their entirety without breaking symbolise long life, a traditional Japanese New Year's (Oshogatsu) feast and prawns, said to resemble old people in shape, are also supposed to bring longevity.

A few days earlier I tested the 75mm prime on Blues Point Reserve North Sydney on the inner harbour. I am experimenting with the different RAW treatments in Apple iPhoto (+Aperture), Adobe Lightroom and PhaseOne CaptureOne.
