SPACE INVADERS.. (kind of..)

I was lucky enough to take some time off over Christmas..  So what does a photographer do with time off ?  Go out in the middle of the night with some friends & take some photos of course!  I can’t help it..  I am addicted..   It’s who I am..  But I also call myself a photographer because photography is what I like do..

I also like music, mountain biking, & going to the movies..  & I really like dark chocolate TimTams.. & Guinness

So yes, Got a call from friends Juanita & Denise (excellento photographers), proposing a dash-for-cash overnighter at the beach for some late night, pitch-black, no moon photography.  *insert high fives & air punches*  Tripods + candles + torch + LEDs + top hats + cloak of invisibilty + broomstick + glowsticks + red wine = mission accomplished !






this night was soooo dark.. zero ambient light except for the storm on the horizon & the green alien ship of course..

Byron Bay on the horizon..  (featuring d.a.yates inda house y'all)

yes, that IS a real shooting star.. (in the sky.. kinda on the leftish.. above the red alien ship)

It was seriously great to hang out with friends & play around like camera nerds..  I would have liked a little ambient moonlight kicker as well but hey, red wine & laughter cures all..  Thanks Juanita & Denise, you guys are RAD !    :D

Paolo some of these shots look like they are taken right from the scene of total recall and the scenery is from mars which in fact are special effects editors creating extra terrestrial images. though not the case, just some seriously sick photography. it must suck to be so good, at photography…
