October 15: Muscle cars

What a day! It was the 25th Anniversary weekend of the North Canterbury Rodders car club and they had a meet and show today. There were over 40 amazing cars from around Canterbury and some serious coin floating around! All I could do was drool and take photos but I’m guessing I’ll have to sell a whole lot more images to afford even some of the less expensive cars on show today… It’s been a very busy afternoon processing these photos and I haven’t even touched Photoshop – just processed them in Photomatix and then put them into groups so I didn’t have to upload 78 images individually! Anyway, here they are and for those that I talked with today – email me at dailyphotonz@gmail.com if you want to book a full shoot. Enjoy the images for day 286! 🙂



August 11: Railway graffiti

This is a graffiti wall next to the railway tracks by the school I teach at and every time I walk or drive past I think I should bring my camera in and take some photos. Today I was at school from 7:30am – 8:30pm for parent-teacher interviews so I took half an hour off to wander over and grab a few shots. Hope you like them! Day 221 done…



July 28: Waikuku sunset

I was driving home late this afternoon and the sun was just going down so I stopped by the Waikuku Estuary for a look… It was a pretty impressive sunset which got even better after I had left and was driving home but oh well. You can’t really see in the photo but the mountains in the background are covered in snow and the whole scene was pretty awesome. So that’s it for my 209th day 🙂



July 27: Farm machinery


I was driving home this afternoon when I dove past a farm with this sitting in the front paddock. I wanted to take a photo but it was a bit awkward because the farmer was working in the paddock and I didn’t want to look like a creeper so I kept on driving.  I got about 50 meters down the road then decided I could handle the farmer looking at me weird so I turned around and drove back. I don’t know if he even looked at me because I just pretended he wasn’t there, snapped away and then left. I have no idea what this thing is – hence the generic name – but I like rusted old things so this fits the bill for day 208…


July 26: Then the sun came out…

I woke up this morning to see that the sun had come out after a super cold and frosty night and even though it was still freezing, the snow looked pretty awesome lit up by the sun. These photos are from Waikuku Beach, North Canterbury from about 8-9:30 this morning.



July 25: Snow day

Snow day! It was snowing a bit last night then woke up this morning to a very white Canterbury! It looks pretty awesome so I got dressed into lots of layers and headed down to the lake to grab some photos. It was OK for the first few minutes then the wind started picking up and my hands were so cold that they wouldn’t work any more so I came back inside to defrost. Heading out now so my earliest post on day 206 🙂
