Hong Kong Market

  Momentarily when I arrived home, I was happy to see the internet had been fixed…then I sat down and it stopped again. Perhaps its some radio wave I emit when I enter the house!? Its working right now at least, so I will get on with todays post. Shot back something like a decade […]

Road on the Hill

Still having internet issues at home, which is very annoying. Im quite surprised and unimpressed its taking so long to rectify…maybe tomorrow!?!?…

Evening CBD

Out for a stroll in the CBD tonight I captured one of the old buildings on the main road -Queen Street. A funny story,perhaps for another time, I recall getting stuck between this building and the next with a friend when we were young kids – eventuating in a rescue! Shot on the mobile, using […]

Sails on the Harbour

Car Park by Night

The indigenous group of New Zealand, The Maori have legends of the great Waka that brought them to New Zealand from Hawaiki. Some time later the European discoverers came to the South Seas of the Pacific – Abel Tasman,and most notably Captain […]

Black and White Garbage

As posted yesterday, Wednesday night I attended the Garbage concert at the Auckland Civic. Being concerts can be iffy about cameras, especially ones with Lenses that look big, I took along a Ricoh CX6. A great little camera with 10.7x zoom, as with all small point and shoots, it struggled a little with focus at […]

Ranginui and Papatuanuku

Ranginui and Papatuanuku (Rangi & Papa) are the two primordial parents relating to the creation of the universe in Maori legend. To summarise loosely (check the full story here), Rangi and Papa lived embraced together. Their children were always stuck in the dark, cramped and unhappy. Eventually they decided to separate the two, and one […]
