Is a funny thing. After enjoying the structure that was a simple assignment, I feel out of the groove. I decided, actually I just didn’t choose, and because of that images laid dormant. Busy, tired, otherwise focused on catching up with sleep? I suppose it doesn’t matter.

A recent dead camera encouraged me to sell fancy auto-glass and has reminded me of the fun I had, in effort I suppose to explore what got me hooked in the first place. Slow compositions. More walking around then focused on securing images, the journey? Gasp this is sounding like a 90’s teen drama.

Anyway, Happy to be back taking pictures. A change in format may be enough to encourage me to look around the place.

I’m still a sucker for some 45 degree angles. 🙁

Here I like to think the door is mid sentence with a giant speech bubble (the glass) appearing for it to display it’s wisdom.

I would, well no I did and then the universe treated me to it’s own coming in via the window.

Really is as pretty as they say. Cliché images for my reference, to remind me to spend a significant amount of time there again.

The view from the plains outside of Te Anau

Toward, and on Milford Sound

This little cabin is the entrance to the Homer tunnel that takes you back up and out the mountain range.

You would think one would get over looking at mountains, not so. Small climbs have you looking at peeks as if you where dropped from a helicopter.

One could spend months looking at the changes in shape and texture.

And you don’t need to go far to be blown away (just outside of Queenstown)

Driving on the west coast and your are presented with stream after stream.

The place is just simply enticing.

Can’t wait to go back.

A current social media trend/virus, has a call to action for all to capture seven black and white images in seven days without a description, nor to involve any people or persons.

Social media channels have naturally been well flooded with images, assisting no doubt in the platforms content detection algorithms as artists go on to answer questions from the comments posted, describing the content and meaning of their images.

I’m interested in the idea of machines deciding value and creating art by their process of being a curator.

These images comment on that idea by being void of direct content initially appreciable, for who becomes the audience if we are all creating for a curator whom can not value or directly create?

Walking around the city of an evening is still the best way to enjoy it. Less people, interesting shapes. Ah perhaps I’m just looking forward to winter.

Green Mid Week

A mid week break had me away from home and lost in the splendour of a habit natural, yet removed from our every day experience.

Medicinal how refreshing a pallet away from the greys and whites can be.

I’m gonna call a pass on the post from last week and come back to this. Skipping ahead, moving on to next week.

In the Interim, this place really needs a picture of a Renault I painted. Click Ah what a lovely piece of nonsense. Coming soon more rego.

Is this thing

In what feels like an eternity for me, I’m only just sitting down now.

What happened to my photo a week! I was making roughly good process. Of course I got to a difficult week (collaborate with an artist) and left it be.. This hobby of mine is rather mine alone (ED: despite a public blog, yeah right..) and I felt uncomfortable approaching my mates in my time off and be like “Hey! lets work on this thing for this thing I’m playing with Wooo!”

That is the point of this exercise after all. To push me out there!

So with this posts date stamp as proof, I’m giving myself a week now to complete the overdue work and get back on track.


P.s I haven’t not been taking photos, but nothing I really wish to add and I already feel like this is going to quickly get into a P.s about gear. Mmm ok just quickly. Having replaced a bunch of primes with a few zooms, I can’t help but feel I’ve become lazier with my composition. I’m not restricted to a focal length now, so I’m not really thinking about composition. It’s a Flick of the wrist to get things in and out of the frame without concern of the image I’m trying to shoot!

At least I’m aware of this now. I have to think much more carefully before lifting the lens to eye.

See you in a week.

Absolutely nothing to complain about

Yet still.



As if we in developed economies should be miserable.
