October 2, 2014 … operating under constraints

A golden hazy morning seemed like a good start.


From the front doorstep, I pointed the camera across the valley and attempted to capture the essence of the new day. For anyone who knows the Hutt Valley the street with the sun gleaming on it is High Street, and the jumble of tower blocks just to the right is the Hutt Hospital. Ahead in the hazy distance is the suburb of Naenae with Avalon out to the left.


Then I had to return my car to the panel beater to complete the job that it went in for a week ago. Walking or buses is the order of the day until Friday. At home, I fiddled about with a job for Mary.  She was organizing a raffle for the mid-week ladies tennis club and she wanted a picture of the prize, a gift-wrapped basket of goodies. It is much too heavy to cart around, so a picture will suffice, as long as customers don’t pay with pictures of their money.


Then I played about some more trying to do a little stop-motion work.

That’s all for today.




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.
