Mucking about with Lightroom CC

Images made over the past few weeks with the Samsung Galaxy S8. Edited on the phone with Lightroom CC; a tad paint by numbers but fun. Just a pity I can’t get Windows 10 to recognise the desktop version*. Much looking and cache clearing etc but no luck yet. As I am wont to comment whenever surveyed by Adobe ‘great tools just a pity having to navigate the gatekeepers and the ‘troubleshooting’ threads to solve a problem’. Others share the issue but no solution to be found as yet. I shall just wait. The Creative Cloud Photography plan apps have all been updated in recent days.

*update: late May Adobe support sorted this issue, thanks heaps!!

Telling the Waikato Story: Cambridge Farmers’ Market; 2 July 2016

Published Friday 9 December 2016. Photograph made 2/7/2016.

I said at the time ‘this is rather akin to the Regional Council running the buses‘. The bus service is actually quite good; could do with some promotion, but it does what it does. And yes, it is easy to criticise, and no, I am not the target audience or market. Not even close. But. But. My gut reaction today, upon seeing this project, is much the same as when I made this photograph of the Telling the Waikato Story crew on the ground in July. How can I describe it? A stock image version of our place? A paint by numbers promotion? Who is this aimed at? Apologies; I mean, what is the target demographic? And yes, for good measure, what is Waikato? It’s kind of like that slide show your regional council make you watch in order to promote the promotion of your region. But then I’m not in that loop.

Victoria Bridge Leamington & Cambridge New Zealand

Victoria bridge; the High Level Bridge as it is known by one and all. Officially opened on the 21st of December 1907 the bridge was imported in kit set from Kansas. The first braced steel arch bridge constructed in New Zealand it was erected from both sides of the river, meeting in the middle. In 2014 an upgrade included widening both footpaths by 40cm to provide a safer space for pedestrians, cyclists and mobility scooters.

Victoria, Hamilton & Lake Cambridge New Zealand

The intersection of Hamilton Road and Victoria Street Cambridge New Zealand a.k.a. the White Church corner is losing its SH1 designation. The Rotorua sign is apt as the Auckland-Cambridge-Rotorua connection was significant for travellers in the early days of motoring. The icon beside the New Zealand state highway shield represents The Thermal Explorer Highway a navigation assistance for visitors travelling between Auckland and Hawke’s Bay; though somewhat superfluous to the needs of the locals. Cambridge Branch Railway (under a variety of names) also passed through (or beside) the intersection from 1884 and most of the 20th century.   A roundabout to replace the current road layout, one of a number of planned infrastructure projects, will be constructed later in the year.

Cambridge New Zealand, hereabouts and close at hand

Cambridge New Zealand and ..

Thirty names associated with Cambridge New Zealand. Mountains, hills, lakes, swamps, farming ‘districts’, our river and streams: the assignment is neighbours (yes, I know and I did do the WP stuff as well). The graphic I prepared earlier. Love these places and place names. I live in Leamington, was born in Cambridge, and grew up at Whitehall. And Taotaoroa is right next door to Hobbiton. Just saying. Rough guesstimate as to the population of the area described; 25,000.

Blogging 101 a WordPress.COM assignment

Today’s assignment: write and publish a “who I am and why I’m here” post on your blog.

A refresher for me – a pause to come to terms with the ‘new’ wp.COM editor – which I have pretty much avoided until now. I am a photographer. I have blogged for about 10 years and been here on the WordPress platform since 2008. A small gallery of photographs taken in the first 4 days of 2016.
