Weekly photo challenge: nostalgic

July 8, 2013 § Leave a comment


Matiu/Somes Island in the Wellington Harbour is a place rich in natural and human history. That includes our endemic tuatara, of course, a member of the Order Sphenodontia, which was already around some 200 million years ago, during the age of the dinosaurs. Only the tuatara survived of this Order of reptiles.

Weekly photo challenge: companionable

This week in the Weekly Photo Challlenge it’s pictures of who we share our lives with. There’ll be a lot of furry things, I reckon. Probably not least because our furry friends can’t really complain about us plastering their photos all over the internet.
Here are my two four-legged mates. They keep me laughing.



Weekly photo challenge: the world through your eyes

This week’s photo challenge: the world through your eyes reminds us to observe before we take a photo. I’m still suspicious of my camera, and still wonder at the impulse to run off for the camera at the glimpse of something without even having looked. This idea that we’ve just seen ‘a good photo’. In my garden, I often watch scenes for weeks before I take a photo. This bird comes back really often, to sit in the first morning sun.

WordPress’s daily post weekly photo challenge: curves. Latin curare ‘to bend’. From curvus ‘bent’. Always makes me think of Tūī. Our endemic honeyeater bird that is such an acrobat in search of nectar.

Fleeting. In Wellington that’s wind. Just again and again. So why not celebrate it, like with these Chinese wind wheels.

Listening to the wind at Under the Sails, Queen's Wharf, Wellington.
