Up close and personal

I met this fellow the other day. Rather close quarters for a city girl.

They make them tough

Not even a sheet of ice was going to stop this jogger.

Scenes of the snow

Lots of snow, all around. It's still laying thickly on the ground. Today is the first birthday I have ever had surrounded by snow.

Crazy Australians

It snows in Dunedin, so of course the crazy Australians have to run out and play.

Looking for light

During my break in study today I went to the Dunedin Museum which is across the road from the university. I had been reading an article online about looking for light, so I made that my mission. Today I wasn't looking for a subject I was looking for interesting light, and this is the result.

Paris, the city of love

I have my computer set up to scroll through my photos as I work in the background. I had taken an expansive photo of the courtyard outside the Louvre and when it came on my screen I noticed that I had captured this couple in the city of love. So I had to edit the photo and crop it down to make them the focus.

To capture the moon

On my flight into Wellington this morning there was a glorious full moon.

View of a bridge

I've just spent two days in Auckland filming at Kelston Girls and working with my good friends at Christina's house. This is the amazing view from her house.

Defend Hillside workshops

A protest was held in Dunedin today about the job cuts happening at the Hillside workshops.
You can read something about it in this Otago Daily Times article.

Red chairs

Another shot from the University of Otago Library. I do like the clean repetition and bold colours.

Ross Creek Panorama

I decided to take a panorama of the reservoir which I walk around on a Sunday. I think next time I will watch the exposure as depending on where the sun was in the sky the exposure dropped as I turned. Might be time for me try this one out on manual.

We now have free wireless in the Octagon and it is common to see people sitting around with their laptops. I liked the contrast of the ages old church and the rugged up technology user.

Ross Creek

I went for a walk with a friend along this lovely track in the freezing cold.

Stairs of learning

During another break from study I snapped around the library.

It is really nice studying in the uni library on a Saturday during the semester holidays as there are no students around and I just about have the place to myself.

Through my window

While I am working away on my computer, I often gaze out the window to think. This is what I look at. I hope I never take it for granted.
