WHITE Magic!

A CLEAN & CONTEMPORARY KITCHEN

This streamlined kitchen is awash with natural light. The white and walnut cabinets create a contemporary backdrop and the wooden floors ground the space. The white stools surround the lacquered counter which can be used as a breakfast area. «Generally going all white’ is a popular choice for kitchen cabinets. It is classy and elegant.

A MODERN MIX

An all-white kitchen is a chic retreat. The white cabinetry, matching cook top, and grey work surface establish the kitchen area in this open-plan home. The granite flooring breaks the monotony and adds life to the space.

Australian Air

Force may have only had five squadrons equipped with Beaufighters in the Pacific Theatre, they punched well above their weight. Crews had three years of intensive low-level operations over land and sea, hitting the enemy hard; but often at the cost of men and aircraft lost. Combat in the Pacific was a war of grinding attrition.

The two most active RAAF Beaufighter units were 30 and 31 Squadrons, both of which were war-raised. No.30 was formed at Richmond, New South Wales, on March 9, 1942 and five months later 31 was created at Wagga Wagga, NSW.

No.30 remained

THIS ROAD MANAGER’S 50-SQM PAD IS NEARLY DEVOID OF COLOR, BUT IT BRIMS WITH BRIGHTNESS

LAVISH LIGHT.

Road manager Rey Lañada’s pad is the corner unit in the uppermost floor of his condo, which conveniently affords him a generous helping of ambient light. Not only does Rey’s unit appear very airy, but he is also able to save on electricity bills because he doesn’t need to turn on electric lights that often.

The beige sofa from Dimensione is his two dogs’ favorite hangout. Rey says that he rarely receives visitors. The gnarled milktree plant, the bold-red accent chair, feathered lamp

Which tripod should I buy?

I have just bought my first DSLR, and as I live by the coast I would like to have a go at long-exposure photography so that I can capture the movement of the water in my seascapes. I’d also like to try shooting some waterfalls with this technique too.

I know that I will need a tripod in order to avoid blurry shots due to camera shake when using slow shutter speeds, but I am a little overwhelmed by the number of choices available. Have you got any advice on what a beginner on a budget should look out for?

Which telescope?

You can spot the four moons in modest binoculars, 7×50 or 10×50 being the best for this, and you’ll even be able to watch them weave around the planet night by night. If you have a small telescope where you can increase the magnification depending on which eyepiece you use, you’ll see the planet much more clearly and the moons will be more obvious.

Among the most interesting events to observe in the Solar System are the transits, occultations and shadow transits, where you can watch the shadow cast by a moon move across the surface of Jupiter’s disc. This

WHICH SYSTEM DO YOU CHOOSE?

If you’re after a new camera and have a budget of under £300, you may at first

I think you’re limited to a reasonably well-specified compact at best. Look a little harder though and you’ll find DSLRs, Compact System Cameras and a wealth of sophisticated compacts that can be picked up for under £300. What’s the catch, you may ask? Well, they’re probably not going to be the latest models, but with the pace of sensor development slowing down in the past few years, you’re not losing out that much compared to the latest models, while they may not have
