Travel here and visit it.


A particularly dry December saw it looking more yellow then blue/green, but still a beautiful place!

Experimenting with gear had me chasing grown up skateboarders. You remember those kids that used to hang at the mall making old couples feel uncomfortable? Well they grew up, they have families and they have found a unique from of expression.

So with this content in mind I wanted to capture the excitement and movement with practising some pans along with adjusting the focal range (zoom)

Shutter was hovering around 20-45th a second mark naturally the slower the shutter the more pronounced the effect.

The last image of the grey 180 starts to show the effect working. a little bit of a diagonal is hinted at in the corners as the effect of pulling the zoom out when shooting is shown.

I must come back with a monopod or something to assist in stabilizing at least of the dimensions, It might assist in the effect.

More practice for me.

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?

Portrait: Another Self Portrait
For your final challenge, we end where we started. Take one last self-portrait, and be amazed at how far you have come in a year

With the conclusion of this project and the continual cheating throughout, I couldn’t just settle with one image. Now this process has taught me how to nail a head-shot, (I like ’em dark-ish)

..but I confess I’m bored of that now. The real self portraits I like, still come from the environment. Perhaps I can work now at cutting these back, or better yet increasing the distractions.

The end.

Artistic: Art
It is time to really challenge yourself. Your artistic interpretation should be art, about art. So meta.

At first I enjoyed this.

Communicative, rouses ideas / feelings about the type of person this sign is directed towards, gives you an emotional response. Pretty much what I feel art should be mandated for.

But then it can still be fun, so Art about Art..

I reckon Whistler would have been a cat person. But since I’m a dog person, “Whistlers Doggo”.
