So time for some more MUSE.  Seems they won’t be coming to Melbourne in 2014 . . . Damn!


This one is getting close.  Seeing the perfect spot to place the tripod, but need to block out that glowing streetlight on the right.  Then a secondary long exposure shot to capture the stars to blend into the final photo.  Also perhaps a close-up of Neptune in the foreground to add to it and also at a moment when no car stuck at the stop light with its headlights glaring (after midnight usually gives a better chance of that) . . . and I should be just about there.  For now this one moves up to the top of my rankings as the #1 favourite on Bendigo Scenic and a motivator to finally get it just right.


Wow the perfect alignment!  The Southern Cross and the Pointers captured last night just above the glow of the blue-lit Sacred Heart Cathedral, and in the foreground one of those old style letter drop mail boxes. Also the power lines crossing the face of the Cathedral gives it an interesting look.  What a lucky catch for a hand-held stumble around in the dark moment.  A fitting photo addition to mark #350 to Bendigo Scenic.


Can’t miss in Bendigo with night time photos of the two most famous landmarks – Sacred Heart Cathedral and the Alexandra Fountain.  And the stars of the Southern Cross were perfectly positioned to appear in a few of these photos on such a clear night.  Visible in a couple of photos (naturally when facing south), but alas I didn’t have the time to set up the tripod to capture them.  Maybe next time.  Definitely another contender in here for my favourite fountain photo though, and the new extension to the Art Gallery is looking mighty fine at night time.


Sometimes having a high contrast Black and White or a Vintage look is more interesting than always colour.  Just experimenting with a few of each type on here.  Will add some to the Red Bubble Shop to see what people think.



In my quest for Rusting Stuff, stumbled upon this shop on Arnold Street which specialises in just that.  The Rust Devil Vintage selling Vintage things and Rusting Stuff.  I mean come on, talk about synchronicity or what.




9 Seconds is all and shrinking fast. With the modern web and hundreds of new websites being created every minute there’s not much time to waste. That is why my Photos change every 9 seconds.

People are time poor afterall . . .

Embrace the moment and go hard and fast to wow ’em with your talent and abilities . . .

. . . for then, in that moment, you just might earn (read win) a new bookmark on here, maybe, just maybe . . . . 🙂

Hopefully . . .

and then keep on adding new content and all will be good. They’ll come back because now they’re curious and will be always wondering whats new.

sjphoto.com.au, yup we’ll be pumping new as often as possible!

Tick tock, tick tock, no time to waste.
