September 3, 2014 … a grey pro-forma day



White-faced heron low and slow

This is a “pro-forma” post.  My apologies for the quality. We are both still “under the weather”, and my pathetic efforts at getting images yesterday are indicative of my state of mind.  I did a quick trip around Pauatahanui, and was quite uninspired. A white-faced heron flew close so it is today’s first image.


I think I am missing the blue skies of Brisbane – greyness abounds

At Motukaraka point, there were a lot of kingfishers spread out across the mid-tide mud but I couldn’t muster the enthusiasm to get out and closer to them.

I am determined that however bleak the results, I shall not break the cycle.


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.
