Melbourne, April 2009

Walking along the cafes and restaurants of Cenre Place, a laneway in Melbourne

I recently spent three days in Melbourne, Australia shooting the photos for a magazine article about the city's alleyways, arcades and lanes (an article on the same topic, written by Phil Lees, can be seen here). It was a fun assignment, and was also my first real chance to try out my new camera, a Nikon D700, and I have to say that I'm a satisfied customer. I think I rarely shot below ISO400, sometimes even shooting at ISO6400, getting excellent results nearly all the time. I love the feel of the camera, and appreciate the gigantic viewfinder.
