Weekly Photo Challenge: My 2012 in pictures.
Home during the holidays The Daughter and I were walking Chevvy at the end of my street. As she headed for home this poem came to me: “she doesn’t look back – it’s as it should be”
The Son turned 21 and with that milestone I couldn’t help but compare the young man chasing life with the little boy chasing birds he knew he’d never catch because he loved the feeling.
As the summer began to move on I took time to practice macro photography on one of my favourite subjects – bees.
In April there were two celebrations. The daughter turned 23 and she graduated as a Mechanical Engineer. At times she makes my heart hurt it is so ready to burst with pride.
In a small shop in Tauranga I found this treasure. While well beyond my purchasing ability, my camera allowed me the pleasure of taking it home with me and editing software gave me the joy of making it my own.
When possible I try to capture the personalities of the fur babies that share my life on film.
I am not adverse to capturing other people’s pets on film either…especially when it includes a trip to my favourite place – the beach.
It’s my birthday month and what better way to celebrate than a yummy steak sandwich with a friend for lunch.
My interest in macro photography is growing. And this beautiful flower [okay Gilly – what is it ?] was worth capturing I thought.
The Tauranga Air Museum is hidden away on the road that leads to the airport. It grew out of an idea and a shed and now houses one of the best collections of antique planes in New Zealand.
Is there anything cuter than a duckling ? Well how about a whole bunch [what do you call a bunch of them?] of ducklings. This one was very special with his little stripe on the head though.
The Katikati Brass Band has a very busy time of it around the holiday season. Here they were performing at a local Victorian Christmas Fair.
