There is nothing worse than calling a Canadian an American, very much like calling a Kiwi, an Aussie.
My experience is that Canadians and Kiwi's are similar, and Aussies and Americans seem to be a natural fit too!
You will be glad to see the back of me!
My physiotherapist Kate, (come torturer) took this shot to show just how out of balance my shoulder back muscles have become over the last 4 months (the healing one is the right shoulder)
She is good...
She pushes all the tender spots,....
She tells me I'm making good progress....
She tells me what I don't want to hear...
Finally it sinks in!
This new camera can focus (on Super Macro) to 20mm
which make it tricky not to get the camera shadow in the shot.
Frost on a black car with a bronze filter...
Does it look warmer!
Now I can take two shots on the one frame....
Hmmm... creative possibilities
Out little bus parked for lunch at Cable Bay
View towards Pepin Island
Very New Zealand-ish icons
I can and do walk the beaches for hours in bliss about nature
Same coast as Kaikoura, same environment feel and smell.
Fishy business on the rocks or maybe a Rock Star
Interesting geology...it's really the eye of an enormous sandfly!
Petrified....well wouldn't you be if you came across it!
Same coastline as the famous Moeraki Boulders
I wonder if they are related?
Anyway marvellous superglue!
The wind was drying out these chalky sort of rocks creating beauty before my eyes.
A dribble made by God
Trying to get my watercolour skills up for traveling to warmer climes
The sun rises out of the sea, while still in bed at Marfells Beach
What a tough life we have as motor homers.
The last day of the "Creative Journeys" watercolour class.
Taken in Wellington on a summers day at lunchtime!
Just today while walking around New Zealand....it struck me how "New Zealand" everybody is around here. Usually I notice New Zealanders when I return to NZ after extensive travels overseas.
Anyway I'm sure I'll have much to report back to you all from the land of:
Impressive Natural wonders.
From the Land of:
"The Biggest Losers" the TV programme.
And from the land that thinks:
"Bigger is definitely Better"
Take Care...have fun.....and be Creative...safely!
