Looks like these sagging fellows could do with a shot of something


Ristretto with Olive Sourdough

Morning start. Fuel for meeting

Coffee and bread photo

This morning's hit out

Its so important to make your own coffee. Even down to choice of cup … looks like I’m having a yellow day .. which means expansive outlook. Lookout!

The olive sourdough is from Berry Sourdough and it is amazing. Coffee is Nespresso’s strongest … Ristretto.

Love a coffee

The ritual is the thing with a morning coffee. The caffeine might have something to do with it as might the cup. I have several choices of coffee cup. Depends on how I feel. Today is bleak and a plan for computer work , sketching then visit a mate for a light music jam … And another coffee

Too much good stuff here.

Leaning Tower of Eiffel

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010

Have arrived in Paris for September. An early arrival saw the dawn of a perfect day … Even if it was 32 hours door to door . The shuttle from the airport to the Marais apartment was an excellent way to see Paris waking up. With the iPhone camera this blog will be updated as much as possible. Walked forever today around the Marais district and ended up at Chez Janou for an early evening meal and some Bordeaux red and just sat there watching Parisians doing their thing. Such a refined tribe. And I want a bike. A pushie with a battery please so the Creme Brulee is whisked away in good time.

Cambodia: logos online and bikes – by Tim Mooney

Friday, February 5th, 2010

A very old friend Pauline Johns is doing great work in Cambodia. Pauline is a regular in a certain area of Cambodia where poverty is the norm. Currently Pauline has been working on a few projects: 1. To give bicycles to deserved remote children, and 2. To help establish a school for these needy children.

Two too cute !

I’ve been lending a hand via email designing a logo for the new school and another logo for an accompanying activity. The great www has no boundaries. Pauline is on her iPhone over there and has the full thing under control. I play with Illustrator and Photoshop and backwards and forwards we go until the local powers approve what is presented. Its fun.
Its a long way from Sydney aerial photography but when you see the photos of these underpriviledged people and their very soft natures why wouldn’t one help. Take a look for yourself:

Food Photography by Tim Mooney

Back in September: Taking photos of food is great because it is very much a challenge. You have to be ready as food deteriorates very quickly … looses temperature, changes shape, colour etc.

To get the lighting close to what's required just set up with anything lying around the kitchen

Lighting plays an important part and its best to use as little as possible introduced lighting.
Always have a big glass of water with you when doing food photography. Why? Well when you get the hungers and you want to demolish the meal … have a glass of water instead … or you’ll end up the size of a bus.
