Up and Down

Not much time for written content today sorry. ‘Up and Down’, shot at the Auckland Airport on the Ricoh GRD IV. Using Gimp I converted to B&W, adjusted contrast and sharpness and resized to post. I have finally finished my film in the Pentax with the music festival on Monday – just need to find […]

The Long Walk

Being a fan of sci-fi of all sorts, I recently caught the latest Judge Dredd movie, and re-watched the earlier Stallone version. As a teen, I remember reading episodes of Judge Dredd in 2000AD comic.

Here is a creature that starts life as a little caterpillar, eats and eats and eats until it is about to burst, makes a little sleeping bag to sleep in […]

Immature chilis

With another week passing, here is another garden shot. According to the label when I purchased the saplings, I am in the process of growing red chilli’s (or chili depending on your areas spelling). Covered by my tomato plant (I tend to pack as many saplings into a small area as I can, then wonder […]

Down the Hill to the Village

The Old Wind Vane

A quick snap from a birthday BBQ this evening. Seen better days, this wooden bi-plane vane sits in the garden, slowly falling to pieces. Still has its trusty pilot by the looks! Shot on the Samsung Galaxy and slightly edited in Gimp.

A quick shot from the archives today, ‘Underleaf’ Being in a country full of green lush bushes and forests, a quick walk into this wilderness is always great after a hard day at work. Listening to the song of the native birds and breathing in the fresh breath of nature. I have been a bit […]
