July 12, 2013 … desperate scramble to say something

Diversity is good, I guess.

Consistent high quality would be better. My day began with a trip to town where I noticed the ferry Aratere passing to the North of Matiu/Somes Island, quite close to Petone Beach. This is a fairly rare occurrence, so I took the shot.

This ship recently had an extra 30 metres welded in

Later in the day, while on kitchen duties, I was intrigued by the writhing of the drops of olive oil  as a pot of water was being brought to the boil for some pasta.

Desperately seeking something interesting in the mundane

And then with noting really pleasing “in the can” I looked for something in the house to use. There were some flowers sent to Mary by family members.  They were hastily pressed into service.

That’s it.

The weather is still miserable.

About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
