Bella Fonte, anyone for pizza.....?


With temperatures in Perth still warm and humid our beaches and marinas win as the most popular destination for Perthites and visitors looking to cool off. There are so many really good places to eat at Sorrento Quay something to suit all tastes and budgets! I took the shot above yesterday around lunchtime when Bellafonte Ristorante & Pizzeria was humming with folk appreciating the cooler sea breezes and when I returned later in the evening, below, it was even busier.. diners enjoying the balmy weather. I took the shot below with my new OM-D Olympus without a tripod, am quite happy with it, although obviously a tripod would have been ideal, next time. I'm loving this camera but will definitely have to invest in a long lens as soon as the budget allows :) Happy Thursday, two more sleeps till the weekend, nice! Take care and stay safe.....

  8. Pizza? Always! Fortunately, Italy is quite close...
    A little thing you might want to know... You can actually use lenses made for analog cameras (aka non-digital) on digital cameras. And there is a big plus with it. See, I use an old 75-300 Minolta zoom on my digital Sony camera, and the focal length is multiplied by 1,5. With means that my 75-300 lens actually becomes a 112,5-450mm lens on a digital camera. So it might be worth looking for something like this, as it is much cheaper (usually, anyway), and the quality can be great.

  11. Awww, now I not only crave for warmer weather, but for a Pizza, too. And for a sight like that for real, esp the second one, great, great pic! Many greetings from Wednesday night, 9:15, Grace!
    By golly. Hope that Pizza-dream from the other night doesn´t come back tomorrow morning at 04:50! ;-)
    Please, let the waiter see me at 04:10!

  14. Pizza is great anytime, anywhere, but by the sea is probably the best place. Good luck with your new camera. I looked it up on dpreview and it sounds like a great camera. My first digital was an Olympus and my wife has two Olympus film cameras, which she still keeps for sentimental reasons.
