AUSTRALIA DAY IN SYDNEY | A PHOTOSHOOT AT SYDNEY HARBOUR

For Christmas Santa gave me some money to spend however I wanted. Since I have been into photography lately I decided to spend that money on a new lens. (I know, I am such a dork, but I like doing it, so leave me alone haha)  Since I already have a zoom and a standard lens, I wanted to invest in a lens that is great for astrophotography as well as landscape photography.  I was adviced by the internet as well as by people who actually know what they are doing to look into getting a wide-angle lens. After extensive research, I found a lens that was not too extensive and got some great reviews. I bought it and tested it out during the Australia Day long weekend.  Underneath are some pictures of Sydney harbor during sunset and after dark with my new fancy pants lens.

GETTING AROUND IN SYDNEY | PUBLIC TRANSPORT

Sydney is a massive city! There is no way that you can walk everywhere. Of course, you can hop in a taxi or Uber, but you can only do that if you are made from gold. Getting from the city to Bondi Beach, for example, will cost you (With Uber) $51,00. That is a waste of money if you ask me. The most effective way to get around a foreign city is public transportation.  Sydney has an extensive and pretty reliable bus, train and ferry services which won’t cost you an arm and a leg.  In order to ride the public transportation system, you need to get yourself an Opal Card. In this post, I will show you how to explore Sydney using these opal cards!

CHASING THE STARS | BALMORAL BEACH, PART 2

Yeap she did it again. I told you, once I love doing something I get hooked and I just cannot stop! So, for the second time in a few weeks, I took my tunes to the beach after dark and shot some Astro pictures… Or at least I have attempted to take some. Underneath are the pictures and what I did differently than my first time and whether it has made a difference. Of course, feel free to let me know in the comments below, what you think of these pictures and if you have any tips or tricks for me. Would love to know.
