Demi Half Frame Print

Finally got round to printing a shot from my old Canon Demi S (deceased)

With the 6×6 enlarger mask I made I can only print 3 frames at a time so I might have to experiment with a slightly larger mask and hope the enlarger handles it. Hopefully I can get up to 5 frames printed…

Lost Civilisation

After all the flooding a couple of weeks ago it is strange the things you find washed down streams…

Shooting From the Hip

I haven’t had much of a chance to go out shooting lately and to be perfectly honest I’m feeling a bit rusty.

Need to brush up on my distances by eye 🙂

Smile

Observed on the side of a walking track… Human made or natural?

Burned Out Car

A beautiful day to find a nice burned out car 🙂

I went back a day latter and it had been hauled away.

Stump

Sea bleached tree stump at the mouth of the Wainuiomata river near the Bearing Head lighthouse.

Was out this way yesterday and finally walked to the lighthouse which was about a 3 hour return walk. We had the added bonus of 80-100 km/h wind and had to hold the hand of my smallest so she wouldn’t blow away. Quite an adventure 🙂

You can also see the lens aberration from the lens damage on the taking lens quite clearly in the top right of  the frame

Kite Surfing

Kite surfing is one of those things that I have always meant to try but so far haven’t got around to it…

One day 🙂

Christchurch Earthquake

I finally got a chance to pass through Christchurch earlier in the year for the first time since the major earthquake of 2011.

I have to say it was a bit strange walking through the central city where only around 1 in 5 buildings are still standing even after 5 years.

I remember going to concerts in Christchurch, not getting accommodation for the night, and just wandering around until the bus left back to Dunedin in the morning…

Denniston 2

Looking up towards the top of the Denniston incline which ran coal down to the flats below. At one time it was considered one of the mechanical wonders of the world.

Pinnacles

This is somewhere I really have to go back to at night and shoot some star trails…

It was used as a set for the “Valley of the Dead” in the first Lord of the Rings movies

Cape Palliser

Cape Palliser lighthouse is situated 50km south east of Wellington and according to “Lonely Planet” is one of the top 10 lighthouses in the world… Or so I’m told.

Coastline

A slice of West Coast coastline of the South Island of New Zealand… Apparently according to Lonely Planet this is one of the top 10 most beautiful coastline drives in the world.

Cant say I disagree…
