A Walk at the Beach

Last week, shortly after chemo, I went for a walk at Bethells Beach in order to clear my head from cabin fever, and to just get some fresh air.

Duck Conversations – Collabor:8

August 29, 2010 1 comment

A couple of weeks back I had an unexpected weekend of no chemo, so amongst other things, Hannah and I spent one afternoon parked up at Maraetai Beach, just reading books, wandering along, and general relaxing. I could’t help but over hear a couple of ducks having a conversation about politics and weather a bit further along.

Shutter 1/400, f/11, ISO 400, 250mm.

Waiheke Sunset – Collabor:8

August 5, 2010 4 comments

Last week we had a few days on Waiheke Island. We stayed at a B&B (although the winter special meant the second B was missing) on the south side of the island. This meant remote beaches and seclusion. It was a great break.

This photo was taken one evening just as the sun was going down with a ND filter.

Shutter: 8.0s, f/9, ISO 100, 21mm.

Wine, Cheese, & Raglan – Collabor:8

April 7, 2010 3 comments

The weekend before Easter, Hannah’s parents came up to Auckland to visit, and we thought we would take them to Raglan. The reasons being, our apartment is not very big (and therefore not very hospitable), and the fact that none of us had ever been there before.

I like this photo because it captures the moment in a number of ways. Wine, cheese, books, with views of the beach, and overlooking some native bush. The place where we stayed was perfectly set against the scenery and you could not help but relax. It was a spare of the moment photo as evidence by its one flaw.. a dirty great big chair stopping a complete view of the beach :-).

Oh well… still, looking at this just makes me want to go back there.

Shutter: 1/200, f/4.5, ISO 100, focal length 36mm on 18-55mm lens. Cross processed in Aperture.

Some friends and I have started up a new photography blog where 8 of us each post a photo every 8 days. The net result is a photo a day for those that subscribe. Each has their own unique perspective of viewing the world through a lens, and it also allows each of us to exercise and develop our photographic ability.

I was first up on the roster, posting the photo below.  (Click the photo to see the post entry).

If you are interested in this, I highly recommend you visit and subscribe to the blog. You’ll have the opportunity to see creative process in action, as well as being able to interact with those who post the photos and continue to develop their skills in photography.

I will endeavour to put up each of my posts on this blog, but if you want to see them all (and you know you do!!) you should bookmark or subscribe to the collabor:8 website.
