Back to Welsh Pub

20 06 2011

Well it’s been a couple of years but the Welsh pub is still there and as good as ever with a great crowd and warm hospitality.

We were treated to a traditional Maori Haka and great piano music played by the very talented Dave.

Weta Cave and Wellington Harbour

20 06 2011

Saturday saw a return trip to the Weta Cave to see what’s changed since last time. A few new exhibits and collectables. Quite a relaxing day with a wonderful sunset over the Lower Hutt area to the North of Wellington.

A day in Melbourne

20 06 2011

Melbourne is very much a mix of the old and new new with beautiful old architecture towered by modern skyscrapers. While this was defiantly an unexpected visit and much longer than planned it was definitely a good place visit.

A special thanks to Peter and Barbara for your company and a day out to Melbourne. It was great to meet you both.


They say getting there is half the fun, little did they know…

20 06 2011

As was the last time I flew to NZ the weather in London was a drizzle. Not much more to say about that, however, the journey to New Zealand was quite a bit longer than expected. Just under a week to get to there in total. The first half of the journey to Australia was plain sailing (I flew there though) with stunning views of the Tibetan Plateau with the Himalayas in the background and Hong Kong from the sky, and for some reason I always like to take a photo of my plane. And then the next leg down to Australia was a bit more of a issue due to some volcano in Chile spewing ash all the way over the Pacific ocean covering most of NZ, Tasmania and the lower parts of Australia. It was touch and go whether we would be diverted to Sydney. Apparently there was much chaos and canceled plans the previous days, but Melbourne we landed at.

Doncaster College 2011 Fashion Show

12 06 2011

What a fabulous show and a big round of applause goes out to all of you. Here’s all of the photo’s I took for both shows. There’s just under 1800 images all told, 1256 for the afternoon show and 518 for the evening.

These photos are rough and ready and have not been corrected for colour balance and lighting etc, so their warts an all and able to be improved from these rough thumbnails. As always time in not on our side!!! LOL

Leaving on a jet plane…

9 06 2011

Well that time is almost upon me. Come the 12th June 2011 I’ll be aboard my 747 heading back to Wellington, New Zealand.

Three hectic months photographing and touring predominately the North Island this time, though I do have some soft spots for various places on the South Island and hopefully get to visit parts that I didn’t reach last time.

Of course there should be lots of photos to add and view so keep watching this space.

Had a great day today at Doncaster’s Dome for the 2011 Doncaster College Fashion Show. Some wonderful designs and creations. Photo’s to come very soon so watch this space.


PS The photo is Lake Tekapo on the South Island, NZ
