I have arrived at Perth, Australia early morning yesterday, and amazing friends Chris and Char fetched us directly from the airport and we went for a quick breakfast at Mecca's. As simple and straightforward this breakfast was, it was probably the best breakfast I have had in years. And the coffee was really good too, a beautiful start for my brief Perth adventures.
To be entirely honest I have not had much time at all to do any shooting for myself. My main agenda for this short trip was to shoot a friend's wedding. Most of my time was spent on shooting on locations, and I will try to squeeze a bit of my own personal shots, if possible. I think I have come to love Perth enough, that there was not really that over-excitement to shoot it. This may sound a little surprising but I did not actually want to shoot on the streets, even if I have found some time. Why? Because I would rather spend my time catching up with old friends (from my Uni days), reliving some memories, and eating some of the food which I have come to love and miss a lot. Therefore, enjoying the moment was definitely more important than spending too much time and effort shooting.
Here are some shots, which appear to be rather personal, and nothing special to most people. Please excuse the inconsistent color rendering (white balance may be off) and exposure balance, I am currently blogging and processing my photographs on an al-cheapo China branded Android based Tablet. I loaded the images from the camera to the tablet, run Snapseed to process the images, used Google+ to upload the images to Picasa albums and finally, the Picasa Online albums were linked to Blogger directly. Not the easiest way to blog but I guess I cannot forgive myself for leaving this place unattended for such a long time.
ANything with REAL Bacon and Egg is awesome. And oh, even that coffee beats anything (even Starbucks in KL) in Malaysia.

Perth City Skyline from Mill Point Road
Sometimes, 50mm equivalent focal length works better. I used the Olympus 25mm Pancake lens for this shot.
One of my favourite hang-out place during the days, Little Creatures
Little Creatures was famous for their fresh beer, from the tap, literraly.
My favourite, Pale Ale
