I looked out our back door tonight and saw the fog coming in as the sun was setting so I grabbed my camera, jumped on a bike and headed down to the estuary to get some shots… Enjoy!
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 🙂
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…
Some photos from our recent trip to Kaikoura. This is a seal colony just north of Kaikoura that we visited on New Years Day. To be honest I did expect it to be more interesting than sleeping, smelly seals but was a bit disappointed… They blended in well with the rocks so the easiest way to spot them was to walk until you smelt one was close, then stop and look around. Not as cool as they look on TV but worth a look none the less.
It’s been a week since my last post! Which doesn’t sound like long but has been a lifetime to me. Don’t get me wrong – I really enjoyed the project and I still have my camera on me most of the time but it’s been great not having to post every single night! 🙂
Anyway, here are a few photos…

Happy New Year! 365 days after starting this daily-photo project it feels weird (but good) to be finished. It’s been a crazy year in Canterbury so glad to say that 2011 is over and bring on 2012!
I thought it would be fitting to use some HDR images for my final day (sorry to those who aren’t a fan of HDR…) as it’s something that I have learnt a lot about during this project. These images are from our drive to Kaikoura yesterday, walking around Kaikoura and a surf spot about 15 minutes north where I spent 3 hours watching the boys surf some mediocre waves. Obviously I couldn’t get 3 shots of people surfing so I used 5 TIFF images from the RAW to create the HDR.
And that’s it for day 365 😀
Brylee is loving wearing shoes now she can walk in them and even brings her favourite sandals over to us sometimes so that we can put them on her. These are a pair of her shoes which we’ve had for a while and only put on her for special occasions but until now she’s been more interested in taking them off and throwing them away because there hasn’t really been a point in wearing them. But now she’s understanding that she can walk on the sharp stones with them on, she’s a lot more interested and these are one of the favourites. We’re busy packing tonight as we are heading away to Kaikoura tomorrow for a few nights over New Years. Hopefully there will be Internet or at least cell reception there so I can upload my photo(s) for day 365!! I can’t believe this is day 364 and only one more post left until this project is complete! Counting down…
We’ve been working around the house a lot this summer and Brylee has been on hand to make sure Dad is doing it right! We went down to get some wood and Brylee spent time checking that it was good enough before pushing Uncle Mikey out of the way to make sure that the wheelbarrow was in good hands. I’m stoked that she loves getting outside and rolling around in the dirt – even if she does come back covered in dirt. Good to have our little helper on hand for day 363 😀
