Auckland Round The Bay’s 2015

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)





























7104 To Town

7104 to TownAnother shot from my visit to New Market yesterday as one of the trains rushed by heading to town.

Updated the computer (Mac) to 10.9 yesterday and just had a bit of an issue with some of the actions using Gimp. Being I use it daily, it seems too much of a coincidence that it happened the day after my upgrade. I’ll pay around some more in the weekend and see if there are any known issues and solutions.

So for today, shot on the GRD IV and edited 50/50 in Gimp/CS5

 

Cycling in the Rain

Rain cycleA day off with a friend visiting from overseas. We and cold we hopped on our bicycles and cycled  the ‘Auckland circuit’. Starting in Takapuna on the North Shore we headed North to the Greenhithe Bridge. Over the bridge (where todays image was shot on mobile) and out to West Auckland. Back along the west, we headed into the CBD – pumping up a small puncture (showing our lack of repair kit) along the way. Heading through the city, we caught the ferry and ended in Devonport again on the North Shore. Somewhere around a 50km journey, wet cold and ready for dinner.

Nga Toki Mate Whenua – Axes Felling Trees, Kill the Land
1983
Tony Fomison (1939-1990)

“I became attracted to Maori culture because here was this culture produced in the country – an oral culture based on the love of the land, and love of the old and the young ones. In other words, a past, present and future.”
