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.

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.

    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.
