Mt Vic View

As the year winds to a close, we often experience fairly changeable weather around the Christmas/New Year time.
Aside from a few drops of rain, we have been pretty lucky so far.
Taking a trip to Devonport,we ventured up Mt Victoria to see the view.

Garden Update

About a month back I posted a shot of our new vegetable garden. Today I harvested the first of the season- a courgette.
It’s crazy looking back not more than 5 weeks ago at the little seedlings, and comparing to now. I’m especially waiting for the chillies – signs of flowers beginning to show.
Shot on the iPod touch and edited in PhotoToaster.

The Ride Home

With a half marathon coming up soon I decided it was time to get back moving in prep and took the bicycle out to work.
What I always find interesting in Auckland is the small time difference bike vs car is on local rush hour commutes. Sure it takes a little longer, but not to the degree that I need to leave earlier at all.
On top of that,I’m getting some much needed exercise in.

As a side note, I’ve started using an iPod touch for my ‘mobile shots’. With my galaxy s2 going to the other half, I’ve stepped back from the smartphone world (must be two or more months now), but like a small device for apps and photos still. So far I’m finding it great.
