New Plymouth

12 06 2016

Just found this post in my drafts folder. Oops. So I’ll post it now.

This was a few years ago now. After a few days in the sea front town of New Plymouth with the Taranaki volcano dominating the background I finally managed to get one or two of the elusive beast.

Although the skies were clear blue about our heads there always seemed to be a small clump conveniently perched right about the peak. The weather provided a few breaks in the clouds but it didn’t let up much.

Along the walk on the sea front I came across an interesting boulder that to me had a natural formation that I thought resembled the South Island. At the other end of the walk was this magnificent bridge, the ‘Te Rewa Rewa Bridge’

Back to Wellie on Wednesday for a couple of days before departure again.

More photo’s after the break!

Drone’s Away…

11 06 2016

Yes, I’ve taken the plunge and bought a drone. After unsuccessfully trying to fly a RC Helicopter, I’m pleased to say these new drones are much easier to fly. This is a shot of my drone taken from my friends other drone in attack mode following me around. Such a great day.

And yes, I’m back to NZ the end of this month and the drone with be joining my existing camera equipment. I just need to work out now how to host my video files.

I’m still here…

13 01 2015

I know it’s been a while, but I started a new job which I love and not really had the time to post.

For those of you keeping up with website developments… I’ve started rebuilding my website again!!!!

I know, I know. It’s been a perpetual work in motion. This time though, I’ve actually started to develop the new site.

It’s based around a mobile first, responsive design that I’m putting together. It will look very similar to the previous incarnation of the website, while not totally unusable mobiles wise, wasn’t responsive design or mobile optimised. It was SEO friendly but times have changed and practices altered so the new design will reflect current methodologies.

If you’re interesting in keeping up with the development of the new site it’s located on a sub domain development site.

The other news is that I’ve now two sites to maintain, my photography website and an as yet an undeveloped copy of the photography website. This will be more design related.

I’ve also picked up a few domain names since my last post. The most useful is my four letter domain SB-Q. I just need to work out what I can get the Q to stand for!
