Spec-tacular Giraffe

Very stressy yesterday afternoon, my driver's license had expired and I didn't know if they'd issue me a new one. The eye-test ... looking into the machine what I saw bore no relation to what I was supposed to see. This meant I had to visit an optometrist who was a complete stranger, on the...

The Look

In Gore there's a family-friendly pub/restaurant called Howl At The Moon and I thought I had some photos from inside but it seems I've deleted them.

Christmas Moon

Last night we sallied out into the town to see what Gore has to offer in the way of decorated houses at Christmas, assisted by a small article in the local paper that mentioned four or five places.

White on Black

When we visited Bluff on Sunday afternoon I was excited to find a large ship in port, and the icing on the cake was that we found it to be a New Zealand ship named Matuku featuring a large white silver fern icon on a black background. South Port, Bluff, Southland, New Zealand. Photos taken... Continue Reading →

Monochrome Magic

This article by Ann Mackay got my attention, especially as I recently challenged myself to find interesting black-and-white work by other bloggers and then re-blogged a different photo or artwork every day for a week (with permission). I really enjoyed my journey into black-and-white territory In her article, Ann discusses various ways in which a... Continue Reading →
