    I joined my local photography Meet Up group for a photographic walk around the CBD this Australia Day. As expected there was a lot of parades, flag waving and costumes which everyone was taking photos of, so I decided to take photos of the photography group members instead when they were taking their own photos.

    Here are some of my photos.

    Looks like a fun diverse group of compact and DSLR shooters. I've been meaning to come to one of these things but just haven't been able to make it, I don't think I'll be able to make it to the 1 Feb one either it seems.



    You sure you're not being punk'd by Chas Licciardello?

    Hehehe, there's a couple coming up but I'm not going to some of them (as much as I want to). The ones I am attending is the Night Photography on Feb 1 and the Japanese Summer Festival in the Docklands on Feb 10.

    As a non-Australian, what does Australia Day actually celebrate?

    ...and hopefully the autocorrection on my phone is now fixed, and it never substitutes a z for an s again.
