I’ve been hankering to shoot skateboarders for the last while. Went down to Victoria Park in the Auckland CBD yesterday and gave it a go. Reasonably happy with the results, though I am certain there’d be substantial improvement if I went again. Maybe next weekend…
I was so enthralled by the discovery of these Stinkhorn Fungus at the Auckland Domain yesterday shooting the sad flowers of winter, I returned today with my tripod and macro lens – though they are not really macro subjects averaging 10-12 cm high (4-5″) and when fully extended 25-30cm across (12″).

I’ve had enough of winter already, thank you thank you… It’s never really been my cuppa, even when I was a kid in the northern hemisphere in the wilds of upstate New York where the snows fell 4 feet deep and snowdays meant you got to play outside in it all day long in theContinue reading “Even the flowers are depressed”

Unexpectedly came up this tiny little church near Awhitu Central, on our way to the Manukau Head Lighthouse this past weekend. Thought we’d stop and take a few photos. I think God would like it here. These seat cushions are all hand-made, one of a kind. The little blankets you see over the pews areContinue reading “Going to Church”
Had the opportunity to photograph the Auckland Town Hall organ this past weekent. This was my favourite bit. Full frontal view!
Why else would we build this?
A bit of light-painting in the cemetery at twilight… The old section of Waikumete is deliberately allowed to go feral in the spring and summer – it’s a wild and slightly spooky place, fragrant with wildflowers and allergy-inducing pollens. But to be there at night with the moon overhead…
