Champions Bistro, Clayton

Had the incredible fortune of dinning at Champions Bistro in suburbia Clayton. Hidden in this bistro is chef Clinton McIver, an accomplished chef, who has to-date twelve years working experience in some of the world's best restaurants, including Vue Du Monde, one of the very best restaurants in Melbourne. 

Here are a few of shots from the degustation menu (4 courses out of 6) on the night. It was an amazing feast for the eyes, taste buds and at great value! Book a evening at Champions Bistro. You won't regret it. Be warned, there is understandably a long waiting list. (And no, I don't get commission for my comments here.)

Pickled beef, cranberry, wasabi, salad burnett
Lamb sweet bread, leek, tatsoy, mussel, grape
Pynegana Cheddar, nashi, macadamia, salt bush

Apple, sunflower, condensed milk

Blood Moon - Total Lunar Eclipse

While not a very rare event, thought I would give take a couple of shots of the total lunar eclipse, also known as Blood Moon. I read that the eclipse will be on Tuesday, 15th April at 6:34pm. Unfortunately, it was a workday and I only got home about 6:45. So, here they are. 

Apologies on the grain, I don't have that long a lens so these are cropped pics. Hope you enjoy them anyhow. 

On hindsight, may be I should have done time-lapsed pics to get many shots. But this was a rushed job and I was thinking of playing with on-camera HDR instead. Anyway, apparently there is another opportunity in about six months time. Hopefully, I will be more organised then.

Focus on Jewellery

Here are just a couple of test product shots. First is the original. And then after putting them on top of a door snake with floral prints. And why not try a simple white / cream background.
