I've strayed away from blogger a fair bit lately. I guess I really haven't had anything all that interesting to write about, but more, I have been busy with uni life.
Alright, things of importance that are worth mentioning to my minimal followers.... (Hi Matt)
Uni, as always, great.
New housemates, no microwave, TV or proper internet at the moment due to the leave of a former housemate :(
(but, all in due time)
Crazy next door neighbour. Crazy doesn't begin to describe, but I don't really think blogger an appropriate place to go into details about that situation....which has recently been somewhat resolved.
New bedroom..BIG bedroom :D

I photographed a friend's showcase a couple of weekends ago. I was really nervous about it, not sure how I would go with stage photography. With having to take up my ISO some of the images became noisy, and I couldn't use a fast enough shutter speed to get them to freeze entirely without taking my ISO alllllll the way up; which lead to excessive amounts of noise that just looked horrible. So I kept it at about 400 ISO, aperture at the lowest it would go which was about 3.8...wish it would have gone lower. I think I should invest in another lens in case I ever shoot stage again.
It was my first attempt at stage photography, and I think I did alright considering that.

This is probably my favourite shot from the two nights/morning shows.
The performers were all so good!! And this was probably my favourite act.

Some shots from this semester:

Group shot, taken for Studio class. 'Something New'

So, that's that.....nothing else really comes to mind that has been all that interesting. I need to work on refining my major project for this semester, first Work in Progress is in two weeks...ugh.

The holidays are nearly over! Well, they pretty much are...back to class tomorrow!
I feel like I've wasted the day...well, actually...I'm gonna say my 2pm sleep in was so worth it...after staying up until 5am watching Gossip Girl..yeah, I have an addiction. I get it. Hahah. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself when I've finished all the discs!!

Anyway..got home yesterday from a weeks stay in Albury/Wodonga with family..oh how I missed my kitty Stevie Ray! And now, back to uni life. And I am looking forward to it.

"And Shepherds we shall be.

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee.

Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,

that our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command.

So we shall flow a river forth to Thee,

and teeming with souls shall it ever be.

In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti."

Boondock Saints.

As I have been watching alot of movies lately, this blog has gradually turned into a movie review blog...sorry! I will be back to my normal photographic self soon. It hasn't left me....I've just been..distracted! Had so much free time to just kick it, and watch some hardcore films! Haha.
But for now...
It's 8:00am and I have yet to go to sleep. Just finished watching 'Some Kind of Wonderful' a film based in the 80s. I loved it. So good!
Shit, I would love to live back then.

oh, and while I'm at it...
I love you Elton John <3

I have watched so many movies since holidays started!
Unexpected all nighter tonight...it's 5:40 and I'm still awake, and considering making some breaky, going for a nap, and then starting my day...don't know how I'll cope without sleep however. I love sleep.
Anywho...I never tire of this movie. And boy do I feel like listening to Elton John now!

A couple of shots I took at the Burwood cemetery last time Mattsky came to visit. Quite fond of the second one.
