White faced heron

Picking its way delicately through the seaweed

For the second time in a very short period, I have forgotten to post the blog, so this is a belated and very brief entry for the day before yesterday. I didn’t forget the photographs, though they are bland and unexciting, A white-faced heron browses among the weeds at Pauatahanui.

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.
