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.

DTS – a telephone questionaire

DTS in Ministry of Tourism speak stands for Domestic Tourism Survey and I have just done one – an experience both frustrating and illuminating. I say frustrating because it took ages – I am glad I had only made two trips within the survey specific period and stayed privately – otherwise we would have been at it all day. Illuminating because it helped focus my mind on the fors and againsts of ‘destination tourism’. More on this subject soonish.

Cook Street Leamington

Back to Cook Street where I saw the Triumph Stags this morning. Cook Street is all of 200-300 metres long – a brief interlude between roundabouts – and runs alongside the Waikato River. It’s uniqueness – it links traffic from the east – Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty with the west – New Plymouth and Taranaki. There are other routes – this is ours.

A new riverside parking area has appeared in the past couple of weeks, complete with picnic table. The view isn’t too bad either. Peeking above Victoria Bridge the somber roof lines of Le Quesnoy Place over in Cambridge.

Across the road in surprising minimalist livery – black with modest yellow trim and signage – chalk on black board – the Pie and Espresso café. Which was until recently The Kiwi Pie Café.

Racing pigeons

Racing Pigeons

I always imagine them to be racing pigeons doing their daily exercise. Their circuit passes us on Ocean Beach Road, Mount Maunganui. Between Omanu and Arataki. There may be 15 or 20 of them perhaps a few more. If I try and work out their lap times, invariably, they split up or alter their flight path. I don’t really have patience for it but did manage to set this up. So nine in a reasonably framed shot. OK. Not bad but I can do better. (I have been on about getting this image for about four years now I think).

Mauao

There were people everywhere. Dining outside on Ocean Beach Road down by the Mount. And heaps walking around or to the summit of Mauao – Mount Maunganui. More it seems, on a cool winter’s day, than in the height of summer. We concluded there were ‘lots’ on the mountain – a finely realised ‘statistic’ plucked randomly from the air and chucked about until we convinced ourselves of it’s veracity.

There is some resistance to this photo – I love it – another taken at the same time was preferred but I’m the editor and I win. Mother and Son – Marde and Oliver. The boys had walked to the summit and we around the lower track.

Gin Rummy

Peter sighting his hand. A tradition of many years standing, Gin Rummy at the beach. In the countdown to the All Black Springbok match (No Sky). Peter recovered fully from the rugby loss to cook a wonderful meal of salmon, roast potatoes and whole green beans last night (Sunday) complimenting Phoebe’s Saturday evening roast. Yum.
