July 12, 2015 … Shot and mist

Morning mist shots are proof that I woke earlier, yesterday.


Flowing down the valley, the river mist changes the landscape

Not too early, let’s not go overboard. When I opened the curtains, however, the bright river of mist demanded a camera.  This is a nine-shot stitched panorama.


Lower Hutt in the mist

After a shower and breakfast I paid attention again to the ever-changing mist, It was playing games around Lower Hutt’s CBD, hiding and revealing various buildings.


What again? Yes, the Carter Fountain presented a different aspect yesterday

Mary and I went to the city for brunch (whatever that is)  with youngest daughter, Helen and son-in-law Vasely. Our chosen venue was on Oriental Bay  where my old friend the Carter Fountain was at play, sparkling in the low sun. And if you look behind it to the left, you can see that river of mist is still pouring down the valley.

Old time Oriental Bay

After we had enjoyed food and each other’s company, we went our separate ways, but not before I caught this row of houses, perhaps the last serious collection of old-time Oriental Bay architecture. I suppose the time will come when these houses get demolished and replaced by yet another series of high-rise high rent apartments.

Another day to find some images has arrived.

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.

    Love the shot of the Carter fountain in this one. Whilst some regard it as a subject that’s been “done to death” – this shot proves that under different lighting conditions, a very pleasing and dramatic image can be obtained.
