happy 2008

(Before I leave this 'till too late):
Happy New Year friends, bloggers and pedophilic lurkers of cyberspace!

LOOK! The arrival of 2008 has turned me green and scary! Well too bad, this is what you're going to have to look at for the next month because I just remembered blogspot is blocked in China. I hear you say "WTF?" and believe me, I have done my fair share of wtf-ing at this matter.

No matter, here's some nice generic city-scape at night time photography to hinder my potential hiatus. First I started photographing babies and now this. Looks like 2008 will be a riveting year of photography for me. (underneath all that cynical sarcasm, I'm actually surprised at how good Melbourne's Southbank can look)

We spent the night at a friend's city apartment to see the view of the fireworks from their balcony. Really, do not understand the hype of fireworks per se. Took this only because everyone wanted to see what it would look like on my big obnoxious camera. And now I am posting this only incase some of you are into this style of festive photography. Really, I am not feeling as disdained as I sound...

I think I'm just grumpy at my lack of nye's party-ing and/or lack of starting this dreadful year wasted. I don't know about you, but the most amusement I got out of tonight was having the guy on the balcony above call down to me in every asian language he knows. After noticing that I wasn't responding, he asked me if I was "Japanese?" or "Korean?" maybe "Thai?". His friend suggested "Chinese?" yes, bingo. And then came a "Oww fuck, I can't say anything in Chinese" in a heavy Irish accent. haha, funny bloke.

Anyway, I'm off now to catch a few hours of sleep before my flight to Shanghai tomorrow morning. See you's in a month's time then. Don't miss me too much.

God kvall min sot,
