Been a while since I have posted anything regular here. As it often does, life keeps us busy and things fall to the side. For me the busyness has been a bit of a break from photography in general. Neither a good or bad thing, just a thing. Todays shot was taken during a ’round a lake’ walk a month or so ago. Walking past a new zone of expansion as urban sprawl continues, the land was being carved into the suburbs of tomorrow.
Shot on the Ricoh GRD IV, converted to B&W with HDR effects added.
Passed this thought provoking sign when cycling home from work today. It’s one of those great thought provokers that essentially asks where you want to be and why not be doing it now. The fact it was a chalk board makes it one of the best signs I’ve seen in a long time…that said, no idea if it was marketing something!…
Sitting outside the house with friends, this poor little guy hit the window at speed and dropped to the ground. Knocked out for a minute or two, he slowly came to,moving his head, wings, up to a staggering standing position – no doubt a little scared of the predicament he had woken up to -and then flew off into a nearby tree to shake off the rest of the event.
Time again for Aucklands annual Round the Bay’s fun run/race, our biggest annual run the country holds. A nice calm morning made for a scenic walk to the start (and warm weather for the run)
