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

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
