I know it’s been a long time since I actually came back from my holiday to Sydney, but I thought I’d better get around to updating my blog with photos. I’ve uploaded all the photos that I got printed to my Flickr account but I’ve also found a handy little Flash-based applet called Pictobrowser that can be used to display all the images as a slideshow:
I’ve decided to post a few pictures I’ve taken with my new phone (a Sony Ericsson K800i). Mainly to show off what I think are nice pictures. I’ve also taken the opportunity to start using Flickr to host my photos. Should free up some bandwidth on my web hosting. 🙂
The first one is a picture of the Port of Liverpool Building and the Liver Building I took on the way home one night from work. I was very impressed with the clarity of the picture despite the size of the lens on the phone.
The scene looks stunning from a thumbnail – the water was incredibly still leading to a perfect reflection. But when you look at the full size image you realise how blurry it is.
Oh well. Hopefully I’ll be able to get a proper camera soon and take a decent picture of something like this.
Despite this I’m quite happy with it.
This picture was taken on a completely different night in the Lifeworx Cafe (or as Mark would call it the ‘Lifestyle Cafe’.) It is a picture of a candle in a glass, but taken in negative. Because of the closeness of the phone to the object being photographed it is surprisingly clear. I am really happy with this photo.
