Apollo Bay at night
Shot with Nikon FE + Nikkor 35mm f/2 on Fujifilm 400CN, then processed in Ilford ID-11.

My first home-processed film :)
There are a few other photos on Flickr now too.

Melbourne became cold suddenly! I have been glad to have new jacket of doom, especially when getting lost riding around Briar Hill trying to find some random guy to buy a second hand lens from, who has a surprisingly large collection of exotic Nikkors actually, given he claims to have been working behind the counter of my local bottle shop for the past five years.

I am now wondering if I can combine new favourite jacket with continuing-to-be-favourite green woollen hoody.. although prior trial and error has proven that hoodies and motorcycling don't really go that well together, what with the former item acting a bit like a miniature drag-chute.

I'd like to have one of these in my bedroom now, please:
The warmthinator
(from Sunday's rained-out Flickr meet, which was mostly spent drinking for a long time in the Wesley Anne, a converted old chapel in Northcote.)

In my never-ending quest to work my way through just about every lens ever, I now have a Nikkor 24-85mm f/2.8-4 to play with, and thus am probably looking to sell off my Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8. The latter is not a bad lens at all, though.

The usual "before it goes on ebay" post..
Anyone after a Nikon D200 and/or Nikon MB-D200 grip?
Excellent condition, only light amateur use.
It's a semi-professional 10.2 MP digital SLR, with magnesium alloy body, weather-proofing seals, support for all Nikon lenses released in the last 40+ years or so (unlike the D40/50/6070/80/90!), 5 fps shooting, and a bunch of other features I'm sure you can google for yourself. :)

For what it's worth, this is the camera I've been using for the past what, 3 years now? So if you've seen photos I've posted, they were almost certainly taken on this camera.

Looking for $1000 ono for the body, which I think is fair; ones in worse condition go for about that on ebay.

Reason for sale? I'm thinking of upgrading to the Nikon D700... My shares and funds are all doing terribly, and not bringing me much love, so perhaps I should call it quits on the sharemarket and just spend what is left of my money on an overpriced toy I lust after? It'll bring me more happiness than watching a sea of red numbers that seem to get worse almost every day.
Hell, a D700 will depreciate, but it can't depreciate as fast as my shares have done! It'll take years for the shares to recover, and frankly, I'd rather have enjoyment today, tomorrow, and for those years, rather than having more money at an unspecified time in the future.

Fuck it all. Toys FTW.
