Rā 295 Rātu 24 o Whiringa-ā-nuku

The Cobham Road underpass, which has been under construction for the last few months is now open. One of the things I like about Hamilton is the add amount of street art and there is a great example of it in the underpass. This is just a detail.

Day 197 July 15th 2016

People watching. We were talking in the pub this evening about the difference between taking a technically good photograph and being able to ‘see’ the feeling of a photograph. I love taking photos that pose a question,  that prompt people to ponder. I think this one does that.

Day 192 July 10th 2016

A cleaning out the garage sort of day…  We can now actually walk from one side to the other without having to step over stuff!  Two hockey matches for Gus today. The sun set whilst he played the first – a stunning winter sky.

Day 191 July 9th 2016

A lazy day which started with brunch, then to the football field to watch Lachlan play, a trip to town to kit Gus out for his first school ball, then a family trip to the Hamilton night market. It was lovely to be all four together. Scrummy food but otherwise not much to tempt us back… a sort of glorified $2 shop with one or two notable arty exceptions. Interesting range of food though and plenty of people made it a bustling, warm atmosphere. This little boy bravely played his violin amongst the throngs.

Day 145 May 24th 2016

A little bit of a cheat today as I didn’t take any photos. However,  the new sculpture in Hamilton was in the news and since I took a photo of it at the weekend I thought it worth sharing.
Apparently ‘The waterfall of the sculpture represents the tongue of the dog, described in a Maori legend about the creation of the Waikato River.’ 
My photo doesn’t show the waterfall as it was taken before it was unveiled. Will have to go and take another this weekend.

Morning walks around the lake have resumed now that hockey training has started again.  Think it’s going to be a bit hit and miss this term with all the travelling I’ll be doing so I’ll make the most of them when I can. I looked out for the spoonbills where I saw them last week but they have moved to the other side of the lake.  Fast asleep too at 7.15! Lazy!

Day 113 April 22nd 2016

Home again and how good is my own bed!? A great night’s sleep, a good day’s work and a lovely evening out with Nigel. The moon has been beautiful this week and getting rounder! We watched as it rose high in the sky, silvery shiny in the inky darkness.
