Nostalgic.

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.

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.
