September 26, 2015 … poverty in the midst of plenty

Somehow, there are days when I find myself in great places and see nothing.


The stream in the Takapu valley

The  Takapu Valley is just over the ridge from us. We are n the Eastern side of the Belmont Regional park,. It is on the West. It is a narrow and winding road following a similarly meandering stream. Despite all the pastoral scenery, there was little I really felt that I needed to make pictures of. The stream shot was really taken to ensure that there was at least one image on the camera’s card.


Hutt Valley near the end of the day

Later in the evening, with some nice light, I went to the water tower at the top of Maungaraki and used the wide angle to get a shot. Ho hum.

Better luck tomorrow


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.
