Walking at St Clair Beach

I went for a nice long walk yesterday and only had my iphone with me, but this scene looked perfect.

Owairaka School

I was very lucky today to attend the opening of the Fale at Owairaka School in Auckland. It was an amazing experience. The singing and dancing was awe inspiring, my job was to capture everything on video. Most days I absolutely love my job.

Gone but not forgotten

I went for a walk through the local cemetery. This cemetery has not been used for decades, however it is lovely to see that people still bring flowers.

Rotorua museum in the morning

I took this photo on the last day of the conference as I walked toward the event centre. The light was amazing.

Each morning I walked from my hotel to the convention centre past a family of Pukekos, they are amazing looking birds with such big feet.

ULearn 11 - Rotorua Museum

Ulearn11 has come and gone. This year it was in Rotorua as the venue we normally use is in the red zone of Christchurch. The conference was a huge success as always and everyone I spoke to went away buzzing. My job is to shoot video for the duration of the conference. I captured 35 videos over four days. You will be able to see them on the EDtalks website very shortly. This photo is the Rotorua Museum which is right next door to the convention centre. It is a beautiful building, and the flower gardens on the walk in to work in the mornings were just glorious!

The weekend was beautiful. So I decided to take a break from study and do some gardening.

Ireland versus Italy

We had a photo walk in Dunedin today organsed by Mike McQueen. There were plenty of interesting things to photograph in the Octagon as it was the day for the Italy versus Ireland RWC game. There was a sea of green, with only one or two blue clad Italian supporters sighted. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me so was reduced to the iPhone, but it was fun watching what other photographers were capturing, the photos they saw and made, and the settings they used.
