    AP Sydney 2012 Xmas gettogether - Darey

    Well what a night,
    It was blowing a gale when Mary and I left Frenchs Forest to go to Clifton gardens for the 2102 AP Christmas meetup but to our pleasant surprise the Clifton Gardens reserve was well sheltered from the wind and there was a good turnout of APers for the fun, food and games.

    We started the evening with lots of chatting amongst ourselves, eating, drinking and generally having fun while waiting for the sun to go down.

    Some of us went for a walk along a foreshore path with the hope of getting a couple of seascape shots, or for that fact any shots.
    Here are (from back to front) Mr Felix, Peterb666, NikonNellie and Racoon doing their bit.

    When we got back to the Reserve we found some local lads providing some entertainment by jumping off the local wharf and landing in some very awkward positions. (I have provided about 30 action shots to the lads and they are extremely happy with them. (Awesome mate :-) ))

    Finally the sun went down and we got into taking some very amateurish light painting shots.
    Here is a reasonable shot of a very good light orb created by Katoopi (Karen)

    Here we are a lighting up Mr Felix

    And finally we lit up Karen's daughter.

    Thank you everyone for a very enjoyable evening. Mary and I enjoyed ourselves and wish you all.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS
    Cheers

    Great stuff - I really like the blue orb and Karen's daughter. It was a lot of fun and I can see some more of these shoots coming up.
    Cheers

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    Graeme, Thanks for the kind comment, as you know we have lots of fun when we get together. By the way Merry Christmas.

    Peter, Thanks mate, I would like to get out and do a more planned light painting shoot again soon, we will have to work on that.

    Judy, Karen did a goo job with the Orb and I'm very happy with the outcome. It was nice to see you again and Mary and I enjoyed our night out.

    Warren, We had a good time and it's a pity you couldn't come alone. Looking forward to seeing you on a shoot soon.

    Glad you all had a good time. The light painting is always fun and a great job creating the orb.
