Spring Hill, Brisbane
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

This is one of a few small, messy lots sandwiched between refurbished houses. I wonder how close to original this is.

The camera & lens:

Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 USM IS @ 19mm
Exposure: 1/200" @ f/4, ISO 200 (0/1)

Post processing:

  2. White clipping +25, black clipping -40

    The Cosplay thing is Roma Street parklands near the cafe, 11Am – 4PM both days, no idea how many cosplayers will show up but they have an official photographer and anyone else is free to show up to take photos. I'm currently aiming for late Saturday morning to take my son in, then come back in by 5PM for the photowalk.

    There you go, Shezza. Wanna carpool to Auchenflower then ride the rails to town? We can pretend to be hobos =]

    +Alan Warren I am already going to be in the city (New Farm) for a picnic on Saturday.  That'll be wrapping up after lunch, then I'll have to call you to see where you are.  This will be Evelyn's first ride on a Citycat 🙂
