My romance with the dinghy continues… something about a little boat just charms me. Of course, big boats, do to – but it’s not the same. Rather fancied coming upon this one walking along Lake Rotorua last month and took quite a few of it – but I knew I had my shot whenContinue reading “Ngongotaha Dinghy”
Why else would a naked tree be standing out there, in the face of a coming storm?
Can you hear the crickets?
One of my favourite areas of Auckland is Dominion Road. It’s long been full of little antique and junk shops, cafes and various ethnic oddities you won’t find anywhere else in town. It’s a long road and one of the three main sections has become almost completely dominated by small Asian, mostly Chinese restaurants, offeringContinue reading “Lunch time”
A case of en flagrante dilecto, in what would have been broad daylight… there she was, the moon, a brazen hussy eclipsing the sun in the middle of an otherwise ordinary Wednesday… I know I should have averted my eyes, but I just couldn’t tear myself away – not until it was all over. Whew!
There’s a long way to get from Queenstown to Wanaka. And there’s also a shortcut… The Crown Road, winding over the Crown ranges – hairpin turns, rock-slides and a bit of screaming on my part. We always go this way and it always terrifies me… It looks so pretty, so scenic from here…
Another shot of the NZ falcon – soaring… Really, really fast – this was snapped at 1/8000th of a second. Trying to track and shoot something moving that fast was a bit of a challenge, but very satisfying.
Why not? Yeah, I do take a lot of impressionist style photos – it’s my favourite school of painting, so it sort of follows. Some of them turn out well, some I’m not so sure about. These are (or were) roses… but they don’t really give the impression of roses on the bush, more likeContinue reading “Big Bang Theory”
I really hate the whole idea of ‘crazy busy.’ Been there, done that – it’s no way to lead a proper life. You just end up with endless task lists duly completed, but no sense of having lived or living… But these days, it’s been rather like that. There’s no getting caught up, never mindContinue reading “Remorseful giraffe”
Speeding down the motorway at night, coming back from the beach. A bit tired, a bit wind-blown, sipping hot tea from a thermos and playing with the camera – taking long esposure shots of the traffic ahead. Yeah, it’s a bit of a throwaway, but I like it just a little.
