Spring fields

It’s been a while since my last post but I still have my camera with me most of the time and take photos now and then – I just don’t seem to have the time to process or post them! Anyway, this is a field that I drive past on my way to work and I kept thinking that it would look good in a photo so I stopped and took some a few days ago… Enjoy 🙂

Abandoned farmhouse

This is an old house in Waikuku on State Highway 1 that I drive past most days on my way to work. I’ve been meaning to stop and take photos for ages and almost didn’t (I even slowed down, decided not to and kept driving, and then pulled over a did a U-turn a bit down the road) but fought the urge to keep driving and grabbed a few photos.

My wife hates driving with me when I’ve got my camera close because I always want to stop, and while I do feel sorry for all partners of people who like to take photos, it’s always worth stopping! So these photos are dedicated to the frustrated partners who have to sit and wait for photos to be taken…

October 9: Country road

This is a road between Waikuku and Rangiora that we drive down pretty often and I’ve taken a few photos on before. It’s been looking pretty cool for the past few weeks with all the spring colours and I’ve been meaning to stop and take a photo for ages but only just got around to it. Sitting here watching the All Blacks play a pretty good Argentine side after watching the Wallabies beat the South African’s – it’s been a pretty good day for the  280th day of my project 🙂

October 2: Big digger

We went for a walk today and saw this digger so we came back then I grabbed the camera, found a bike lying around and went for a wee ride back down. I kinda like old machinery like this because the worn, rusty steel looks pretty cool in HDR… An early post for day 273 but I’ve got the All Blacks, Junior Warriors and Warriors Grand Final to watch!! What a day!

August 25: Looking back

We broke a mirror yesterday and I saw all the broken pieces this afternoon when I was walking out the door to take a photo. I thought that it might look cool with the reflection of the field behind our house so I took a piece out and played around with it while trying not to cut myself. And here are the results for day 235! I like the first better but included the second as it looks kinda like eyebrows so made me laugh 🙂

August 4: Forgotten doorway

This is an old barn that I have been driving past for the last few years and meaning to stop but never got around it to so I did today! There are so many cool old buildings and machines on farms around here but I’m not overly keen to go walking around with my camera like a weirdo so I pretty much stick to things right on the road. This fits the bill as it was right by the road so I stopped this afternoon and grabbed some shots. I really like the shot of the old deteriorated barn door and would like to get it printed on a canvas one day… Anyway, here are the shots for day 215!
