Should be day 4 black and white but I forgot to do one as I was too busy and I’m late posting this blog. I wanted to post this in black and white but I realised it has people in it! I watched these kids scooting around Aotea Square and talking to each other through the horns. Not sure why they weren’t at school…

Learning all the way today. I spent today in the office in Auckland learning about Te Tiriti o Waitangi and NZ history. Inspiring. Unfortunately, no photographic evidence so I’ll go with Day 1 of the black and white challenge. Take a photo from your daily life with no colour, no people and give no explanation. Easy peasy except I’m in the city and I’m a people watcher…

Annual prize giving tonight. I’m not going to get myself in trouble again for blogging my views on the archaic way we celebrate learning. Instead I am going to share a photo of a young man who has been a friend of my son since we arrived in New Zealand. His parents weren’t at prize giving to see him receive one of the highest accolades for service to the school so I took a photo for them.

It’s the weekend so plenty of opportunity to take photos so spoilt for choice again. With a teenager in the house there are endless shots of phone gazing but I’ll spare you another of those.

When I was a kid we used to shell peas…one of the jobs we liked but there weren’t many peas left to cook by the time we’d finished. I guess mum didn’t mind…
