Well it’s almost gone, cold surfs and darker days are now drawing in further and further every day. On a postivie note though, I was walking through our garden this week and couldn’t help but notice the abundance of fruit and berries which pepper most plants and trees in our yard. In a Newton-esque moment of a pear falling on my head I realised that the summer had turned this garden around and made it a haven of fresh produce for humans and animals alike. Pears, Japonica Apples (I think?), Oranges, Chilli’s (from our indoors plant, Charley the Chilli) and various other unknown, probably inedible berries, not to mention our ever growing new vege garden out back.
After a great surf at St Clair, I finally had the chance to take the pictures that I have always wanted to take, but never had the time or the conditions. The exact amount of light, sea mist, wave size and weather made this photo shoot one of my favourites.
I had my next photography job this weekend as well. I was working for a performance company called “Highly Flammable”. They were showcasing an Italian Pyrotechnic show called FireStrom.
So my best mate Pete and our Danish friend Annis came down to visit from Wanaka on the weekend. It was great to catch up with them and we ended up having an awesome little adventure and a few great nights. I drove them around our beautiful, wild peninsula and showed them the sights. Amongst other stuff, we got chased by seal’s, built a monument on the beach and ascended the steepest street in the world, Baldwin St. Naturally, a lot of fooling around was involved in most of those activities.
Thanks for reading and see you next Sunday
