Run Melbourne 2011

I got up at 6am this morning to give Sarah a lift in for the Run Melbourne event thats happening today. Pretty dedicated. I decided it would be a good opportunity to take some photos at sunrise, which I don’t think I’ve ever done before. Also got some photos of random participants.

Click here the full set of images in this flickR set.

Note – In flickr can you type in the search field “Run Melbourne (bib number)” to search for any particular one. There’s only about 150 photos so the chances are slim, but you never know..

Congratulations to all those who ran today, especially big congratulations to Sarah for finishing the half-marathon, even though she knew she wasn’t prepared training wise, she pushed through and did it!

Some skies and a bridge.

Uploaded some photos I had in my collection last night. Enjoy.

Pondering
Sarah, otherwise known as “The Wife” looking into the sunset down at Rye, VIC at Easter

Cloud-light
I was driving down some road and saw this, the camera was on my passenger seat. I snapped it while driving..Probably should have stopped and set something up.

Another walk bridge.
This was taken a few years ago, after the Australian Open. Connects Melbourne Park to the MCG I think over some of the railway lines. I thought the purple lights came out great.

30 seconds of timelapse.

I’ve been playing around with timelapse stuff for awhile now..Here’s a quick short I put together with some testing I did today.

Watch in HD – Looks much better!

Images combined via Quicktime Pro and vid put together in Vegas Pro.

First scene is an image every 8 seconds over 50 minutes
Second scene is every 15 seconds over an hour.
These were both done with an interval timer. Both from my balcony.

Last scene was every 20 seconds, with camera connected to a laptop running Canon’s EOS Utility over a 1hr30min period. This was done in Easter down in Rye. Unfortunately I re-sized the images prior so quality is poorer. Shame the clouds came through otherwise the stars would have come through nicely.

I finally took some photos.

Over the last..some months.. I have been busy with everything besides using my camera. Motivated by..the heat of the recent 30 degree Melbourne day and wanting to get OUT of the house, I drove down to Docklands and snapped a bunch of photos…3 of which I present to you here.It was actually a bit educational as I learnt about some of the things in these photos..I.e that John Kelly sculpture..

It was a nice way to spend an hour or so wandering around on such an awesome Spring night.

Click the photo to view larger ones @ my flickr site.

My car (again)Drove past this building, thought that it would make a nice backdrop for my car. Somewhat related is the 2, the model of the car is a 200SX. Make of it what you will. This was located around the Docklands area. Cropped the sky off this one, this was around sunset.

Art?An art sculpture of a cow, up a tree which lives permanently in Melbourne’s Docklands precinct. It was made by John Kelly and was based around flood imagery from Australia. The sun was setting, and for some reason I like putting the sun behind things so here we go. Plus the sky was looking pretty cool… Initially this was a portrait oriented image but I cropped it a bit and adjusted some levels as well.

Docklands, MelbourneI haven’t been around Docklands for awhile, so i’m not sure if the silhouette of a large green and red ball is always there but it made it into this photo. I assume it might be there for Christmas..either way, I’d like to find out what the story is behind the pillars left in the water. I know the caps on them are to stop seagulls standing on them, but i think they’re just left over foundations of whatever used to be there.
