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

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.
