August 6, 2015 … in sombre mood

I know there can be exceptions, but hospitals generally don’t cheer me up.

Boatshed

“Havana” boatshed, Evans Bay

After visiting my friend, my mood was definitely aligned with the somewhat sad grey day outside. I wandered aimlessly, hoping for something inspirational.  In Evans Bay, there is a boatshed, the colours of which have earned it a place in many images by many photographers. Its owners have just about completed a re-paint, with the addition of an advertisement for their business. There was a brief patch of calm water to reflect the clash of colours so I tried it.

Seaweed

Neptune’s Necklace … normally well under water

In the afternoon, I wandered around Lowry Bay as the light was fading. It was a very low tide so I went out onto the rocks at the Northern end of the bay, treading on the copious beds of Neptune’s Necklace seaweed.

End of the day

“… rage, rage against the dying of the light”*

A little more to the West, the day was fading, and this really caught the mood of the day for me.

That’s all for now

About wysiwygpurple

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.
