The stars from Makara

We had a weekend of wonderful weather with clear skies and little wind. The moon was rising late on Sunday night so I headed out to Makara to shoot the stars. It was a glorious, a little cool but calm and only a few people about the beach. Heading along the coastal path I could […]

Another year, another Scott Kelby photowalk

On Saturday the annual Scott Kelby Worldwide photowalk took place and I joined up with the Wellington leg. It was a beautiful afternoon and our route took us through a number of interesting back streets and along the waterfront as the sun was setting. It makes a difference when the weather is glorious and the […]

The Arras Tunnel

The area around the Wellington War Memorial is being remodelled into a larger memorial park and part of the work involves putting a section on Buckle Street underground. The new underpass has been named the Arras Tunnel in memory of the New Zealand recruits who were tunnelling underneath the town of Arras in France in […]

Lux Festival 2014

It’s Lux Festival time again in Wellington. This year the festival was bigger with more installations and running over a longer period and unlike last year there wasn’t a big storm coming through on opening night. Keryn was meeting a few people from work for drinks so I headed into the city after work and […]

A zoo party

Today was the combined first birthday celebration for our antenatal group held at Wellington Zoo. We headed to the zoo a little early to walk around while Alayna was still fresh after her morning sleep. It was a sunny but cold afternoon and many of the zoo animals were sleeping in the sun but therefore […]

9 months, part 2

Continuing the 9 months theme here are a couple more photos taken this month. First up is a shot from another weekend visit to Zealandia. Again we’d walked the Round the Lake track and much like last time saw lots of birdlife even with Alayna loudly burbling away most of the time. There were a […]

Back to Petone (and 13 years)

We had a busy afternoon visiting a daycare centre in Takapu Valley and then visiting our mortgage broker in Wellington. One of those visits ended with a decision being made. It was a beautiful day so rather than spending the evening sitting in congested traffic we headed to Petone (OK, there was a short period […]

Mothers Day

This mothers day Keryn had a good sleep-in, a bubble bath and breakfast made for her. Unfortunately she also had quite the cold with a scratchy and sore throat so the sleep in was needed and couldn’t be enjoyed. Alayna and I kept each other entertained to allow Keryn some peace and rest. Outside it […]

Easter Weekend

Easter weekend has been quite relaxed so far. My football was postponed on Friday due to the preceding week of rain so we were able to head out for a walk. Kaitoke was the chosen destination. We had lunch at a picnic table in the glade where a lot of the filming of Rivendell was […]

A long walk at Zealandia

Earlier in the year we had bought a hiking backpack that would allow us to go walking with Alayna and allow her to have a good view. This weekend just gone we decided it was time to test it out and see how Alayna would like it so we planned an afternoon at Zealandia. The […]

The 2014 Wellington Color Run

This year The Colo(u)r Run (spot the event that started in the USA) came to New Zealand for the first time and the Wellington event took place in Upper Hutt at Trentham Park. Thousands of people had signed up and ran or walked a 5km course which took in a number of colour stations. Keryn, […]

NZ Festival: Power Plant

Power Plant is a light and sound installation being held in the Botanical Gardens as part of the NZ Festival. I went along on Tuesday night which was lovely and mild with little in the way of wind. I arrived at the Cable Car terminal in the gardens to find a vast crowd of people […]
