December 5, 2014 … wind and waves

Brevity is a virtue to be prized.


Waxeye (Zosterops lateralis) on a wire


My photographic day began with a waxeye on a wire. I rarely do wire shots, but this one seemed to work.


Into the wild green yonder


My second and last shot for the day is at Seatoun Wharf where the ferry for Day’s Bay has just left in decidedly choppy conditions. It may have been even worse for the passengers on the Kaitaki crossing behind, having just come across the strait.

Very brief, but tomorrow we are in Taranaki


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.
