December 28, 2015 … winding down

When you have little to say, then it is wise to say little.

Yesterday was an anticlimax after the flying the day before. I went looking for images in he afternoon, and though I pressed the shutter several times, achieved little that I am happy with. Others were out enjoying life in their own way.

Paddling to shore with a non-working motor

At Pukerua Bay, the beach was busy, and people were swimming, boating, or just soaking up the sun. I watched as a well equipped power boat towed a smaller boat to shore. The lesser boat had perhaps run out of fuel or suffered a mechanical failure, but a little offshore, it was cast off. The two young men used their oars as paddles to complete the last 100 metres to shore. A pair of kayakers passing by looked more capable.

Enough for now.

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.
