Michael Jeans … in your face watermarking

The 'Kelly' watermark had it's first outing in mid November 2015
The ‘kelly’ watermark had it’s first outing in mid November 2015

The ‘watermark’ you now see on all my photographs has been a long time coming. 2015, a time of much photography but little publishing, has offered me a clearer understanding of what I’m actually doing by publishing my work. Photography, for me, is both craft and art (as well as income). I guess this seems pretty obvious. The craft; the discipline, has been hard won over time and produces some really cool stuff – even though I say so. The art, well, you can behold or not as is your choice. I enjoy being paid. Named for a photographer friend this watermark has a top, middle and a bottom version. One set for online generation, automatically, across my galleries and a Lightroom set generated on export for ‘loose’ proofs. Some special folk have played their part, knowingly or unknowingly, in both the design and thinking behind it. Thank you. Simply put my watermark addresses authorship & ownership, especially now within the cascade of images created daily, and is a clear statement of the value I place on my work.

Thanks to Kelly & Trefor et al. | Waikato Vintage Swapmeet Lake Karapiro Domain 15/11/15

An evening lakeside concert. Headline act Cooper’s Run Michael and Ashley Tiping supported by John Dill (drums), Jack Wallis (guitar) and Shane Reha (bass). I didn’t see the entire concert, arriving as I did, part way through Anna Hawkins’ set. What I did see; Anna Hawkins, the Muffins and Cooper’s Run was excellent. Just a pity the audience was a tad minimalist. Perfect setting, perfect weather, good music and we all now know that the sports women of Iona College rock!

Naming Cambridge New Zealand again and again and again

Crossing Karapiro Hydro Dam

We are at the western lights, on the Maungatautari side of Lake Karapiro, waiting for opposing traffic to clear the one lane that tops the hydro dam so we can cross to the Karapiro side and Karapiro Hydro Village. Though this is not the purpose of this photograph. I’ve talked about the concept Township before.  And of course we are launching forth into that disagreeable season of the Big Little Town or is it Little Big Town promotion that Fieldays inflicts upon Cambridge once a year. Grr.

Cambridge NZ to Lake Karapiro cycleway-walkway Ctd.

The Cambridge to Lake Karapiro portion of Te Awa – the Great New Zealand River Ride (Ngaruawahia to Horahora). Although yet to appear in the Waikato portion of Te Araroa the national cycleway-walkway. The westerly end begins at the intersection of Carlyle Street where Browning Street becomes Maungatautari Road in Leamington. Some 6km in length, give or take, and running alongside Maungatautari Road (and the Waikato River – a paddock or so to the north) through Pukekura to Judd Lane at Lake Karapiro. The eastern portion at the Karapiro Hydro dam end is interesting – a cantilevered boardwalk arrangement below the place called Crows Nest (Redoubt) or Te Tiki o te Ihingarangi just as you drop down to the dam.

Starting pontoons Cambridge Town Cup 29/1/2011

Starting pontoons Cambridge Town Cup Lake Karapiro

Photo taken 09:10 29/1/2011

This tread plate covered pontoon runs at right angles to the 2000 metre Karapiro rowing course while under /through it, at 90 degrees, run each of the boat holder pontoons which are pushed and pulled forward or back to accommodate differing boat lengths – singles to eights. This is a two person job with the boat holder for each lane laying on the end of each pontoon holding their boat in position while their companion pulls and pushes – often it seems with their feet – at the intersection of the two pontoons. As the start approaches the race marshall off to the side asks that the boats be bought into exact alignment with the tweaking continuing right up to the point the starter, in the tower directly behind us, calls the start. Eight lanes – sixteen people not counting the marshals and starters – twenty folk at least – though this morning there were fewer with some hardy souls dashing between stations. Added to this a stiff breeze.

https://i0.wp.com/www.michaeljeans.com/img/s3/v25/p54545285-2.jpg Cambridge Town Cup 2011 KRI # 2 Lake Karapiro

A rowing regatta on the scale of the Cambridge Town Cup is only possible because of the dedicated commitment in time and expertise of a large band of generous and characterful volunteers undertaking an oarsome jigsaw of interlocking tasks. Magic to watch. Photos taken at Cambridge Town Hall Cup on Friday the 28th of January and Saturday the 29th of January 2011 can be found in the day galleries here. Due to a prior family commitment I am unable to attend the regatta today Sunday the 30th.

@ the 1000 metre mark, Lake Karapiro, Maungatautari Road

Dio Maungatautari Road

Diocesan School for Girls (Auckland) rowing squad members view the Lake Karapiro rowing course from above the 1000 metre mark on Maungatautari Road this morning Saturday the 29th of January 2011. The evident camaraderie, team and school spirit these young women exhibit brings much colour (and noise) to the highly disciplined and competitive (not withstanding the matching enthusiasm of their rivals) atmosphere of the Cambridge Town Cup as often fiercely contested battles unfold out on the water. There’s another shot of these young women hereat least I think it’s the same lot! :) The day gallery is here.

Today, tomorrow and Sunday: 28th, 29th & 30th of January 2011.

602 Maungatautari Road, Lake Karapiro, Cambridge New Zealand.

Photos taken in the boat park at KRI # 2, this afternoon as the well oiled machine of volunteers processes hundreds of young rowers, representing schools and clubs, onto the water to race the 2000 metre Lake Karapiro course and then back off the water to the busy boat park behind. The safety of rowers is of constant concern and each boat inspected – particularly the footwear of each rower. Footwear is attached to the boat and must allow for immediate and unimpeded release of the feet in the event of a capsize. As I over heard Roger Milne explain to one crew, whose setup exceeded the 50mm mandated safety tolerance, it is like trying to remove gumboots without the purchase of a step or your toe at the heel of the boot. The difference between being trapped under a boat by your feet or a straightforward dunk and escape to the surface.
