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

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.
