A day out in Ballarat

Written by Gary on August 22nd, 2011

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny almost Spring day and I had a day trip to the old gold rush provincial city of Ballarat to view the many photographic galleries on display as part of the Biennale (see my earlier post).

In between galleries, I snuck back to my car and went for a stroll – after all, my Canon 1D Mark III dSLR has been so neglected of late because it is just so big and heavy and my Panasonic GH-1 now does almost everything I need.

So here are a few I took with the Canon 24-105mm f/4 IS L lens.

Disused weighing station at the railyards – og I love those clouds – looks like they are straight from the Simpsons:
