Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic Exhibition

Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic ExhibitionStopping in Taupo for lunch today I notice the rather large ‘rustic’ and somewhat surreal sign for the Best of New Zealand Geographic Photographic Exhibition. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to visit the exhibition which I understand was showing close by at the Taupo Great Lakes Centre.

The Nikon F90X

Joanna Rushton
Jo has had a rough time of late – and today wasn’t the greatest. Jo wants to pursue photography (with the rationed school time she has at her disposal) through her art. The 90X was retired in 2005 after a full life as a professional camera from new in 1999 or thereabouts. After some too-ing and fro-ing on Facebook and a quick look at what’s on offer on TradeMe – we decide this the best option and a good match.

St Andrews Anglican Church Cambridge NZ

St Andrews Anglican Church Cambridge New Zealand

St Andrews’ Auckland Anniversary Day market day is an annual affair. Today it has many visitors as right along side SH1 traffic crawls home from the long weekend. One attraction is the church itself. As I sit still in a pew for five minutes making this photograph I am intrigued by the comments of those seeing the inside of the church for the first time – I have known it all my life.
