More to come about the X10 in the coming days. I’ll shoot some street photography with it in Melbourne.

Then lovers, some happier than others. (click on pictures for high res)

Here they stand proudly a few meters away from the Coast. They were split from mainland thousands years ago, and their fate is to be assaulted relentlessly by the waves of the Southern sea. Until they crumble. They are the 12 Apostles and definitely one of Australia’s best landmark.  (click on pictures for high res)
