Awesome day out there today, weather seemed perfect. Great to meet some of you too, and thanks for checking the page out (If you came here via a card)
Please note, I’m pretty big on quality over quantity. **Any shot that was decent will be posted** If I shot your car and it didn’t make it into the set then either the shot was rubbish, or there was a focus issue or you were picking your nose, etc! I do my best to get a bit of everything, but if you don’t see your car then my apologies! Next time 🙂

Went down to check out the Mighty Car Mods meet held in Southbank, Melbourne today.
A fairly big turnout, was good to meet Marty and have a quick chat (He was on the Micra forums prior to the MCM days) as well as put some faces to names.
Some very tough cars out as well. Good to see such a culmination of the car community there – pretty much something for everyone – Japan, Australia, euros, old models, new models.
Here’s some photos from the meet. As usual, enjoy! Full Set is here.
I had bought an Ikea MICKE Desk awhile back because it was pretty simple, had some good drawer space and more importantly, hidden cable management!
The only downside to this desk was its depth. Unless you used a laptop or something on it, there really wasn’t much space at all.
In order to overcome this, the thinking cap came on and with some inspiration spurred on by this workspace and the whole Ikea Hackers movement. I decided to see what I could do to improve the desk, rather than go out and buy something totally different. (I did look, but didn’t see anything that fit my needs and that was affordable – so might as well make something!)
My idea started off as to use an extra shelf. Raised, so I could place the monitors on it and gain much needed desk space underneath back. I had a LACK wallshelf hanging around so I played around with that first, to get an idea of what would work.
Using some old Manfrotto boxes and the LACK, this is what it looked like:
Here was the final result, at a cost of under $65 AUD. Pretty good for more functionality, looks decent as well!
If you’re interested and want to see the progress shots on how it was all put together, check out the flicKR set here.
Interested in peoples thoughts on this! Let me know what you think.
April Fools Day and the end of Daylight savings. Starting the day with an extra hour’s sleep? I’m not complaining.
Sarah took park in the this year’s Run for the Kids – and as with most of her fun runs, I head in as well and snap off some shots while waiting for her at the finish line.
I don’t ask anything for these images, I’m going out there and hopefully getting some nice photos of participants. So if you get lucky and find yourself in one, please let me know! I’ll be happy to send you a copy. Also, if you like what I do, Like my facebook page! —>
Here’s some photos that I took from the 2012 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix last weekend. I was lucky enough to get to enjoy some corporate hospitality so had some pretty amazing views. Not sure if I can go back General Admin after this weekend!
