May 9, 2015 … clutching at straws

It was one of those days.


Low cloud and angled rays looking up the valley to Avalon

The ones when nothing seemed to happen, and when the clock ran out on me before I had anything useful. Early morning (relatively speaking) hinted at a something in pale grey.


Still oppressive cloud at the end of the day. Looking to Wellington from Petone

In the late afternoon, Mary and I went to the movies, and out of desperation I took her to Petone beach afterwards to snatch a view of the city. She is remarkably tolerant of my obsession.


A ray of metaphorical sunshine

She saved me again by lending me the beautiful Mothers’ Day bouquet that had been delivered while we were out.

Today is the only sunny day in the forecast for the next ten so I should go now,

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
