Twisted Metal

Concrete reinforcing after the first stage of demolition… I took this last Tuesday and will go back again today to see how they are getting on… I expect it will be quite different…

Fatherhood Friday 23: Storms and Beaches

Fatherhood Friday took a break last week due to me forgetting it was Friday… This new routine with me working an extra couple of days a week is really eating into my photography/blog time… not that I’m complaining… more just readjusting.

In between earthquakes and storms the size of Australia the weather has finally started to hint at what spring might be like and we have had a chance to go to the beach (admittedly in jackets and hats) and play in the sand which both girls love to do.

Unfortunately this has also brought on the spring colds etc… Samantha has had a pretty rough week and had to be picked up from Creche on Tuesday and has been sick pretty much ever since, complete with late night vomit and constant grumpiness. Emily is still having trouble hearing due to fluid in her ears but has been prescribed nose blowing and blowing up balloons by the doctor (I kid you not). She was surprised to find that she can actually blow up a balloon by herself.

Anyway everyone seems to be feeling better now so hopefully (touch wood) we are over the worst and things can go back to normal… as normal as they can get anyway 🙂

Oriental Beach Renewal

On a Dark and Stormy Night.

Replacing sand before a big beech volleyball tornament. The beech is entirely man made with sand trucked in from Golden Bay in the South Island.

I forgot to take my remote shutter release so could only get short (30 second) exposures and it started raining almost as soon as I got there.

Made for good dramatic clouds though.
