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.

The royal visit today necessitated Cambridge Farmers Market giving up its prime spot on Victoria Square for Leamington Domain. A most picturesque relocation. And yes, there seemed to be a steady stream of customers given, I understand, the location was only firmed up during the week.

SquareSpace experiment jan / feb 2013

SquareSpace trial
SquareSpace trial

Absolutely cool, easy to learn and set up. 24/7 support – friendly and encouraging. Looks great. English I think? No, perhaps it is American. I envision it an excellent portal / portfolio / shop window website. Just a little lacking in the navigation and layout integration departments – though using it as is, is still pretty nifty. Would love to see the blogging and page options keep the full screen gallery layout (perhaps I missed something). How about html image mapping (?) to enhance navigation creatively using all that wide screen expanse. This review puts it up there on a par with WordPress (this blog) and Google’s Blogger. There is a more expensive option but at around $US100.00 per year (with domain mapping) a snip. I will have another look in the near future.

847 items February 2012

I have been using Lightroom full-time for the past 18 months to organise and post produce my camera RAW files. The ‘chosen ones’ find their way into two archives, one ‘in the cloud’ ~ the other ~ a local drive. The exceptional ones :) – those that ‘work’ (I should explain at some point) are in turn backed up twice ~ on another drive and cloud account (I also carry a version of this collection with me on my phone). Lightroom is efficient and fast to use (I wouldn’t be without it now ~ though there is a significant learning curve in using it effectively). Integrating my camera phone (NON RAW) files into this system has been a bit of a mission – I admit I may be a bit slow on the uptake – hence there is some slippage which ends up in a folder that expands and contracts as I deal with them. Some are rejects, alternate edits, double ups and PS doodles ~ as well as phone camera files looking for a home or the reject bin. There are currently 847 items in this folder requiring attention. :(

BMX track opening self assignment

Ariel Walter in front

In deciding to photograph today from a observer’s point of view – as you do – as I do – I had one image in mind and this is the variation on that idea as it appeared towards the end of the day – cropped – oh well, close!  There are others but this suits me; Ariel Walter won this race from – sorry – I do not know the name of her competitor. Interestingly the Facebook f makes an appearance in colours not a million miles away from the competitor number plates. I tend to like little visual plays like this – I’m sure they’re Facebook friends. unedited day gallery

Cambridge Tavern 1976 – 2011

There’s much happening around the highest point in Leamington; the highest point in the whole of Cambridge! Lauriston Park Retirement Village rockets towards completion. Next door – well, down the hill just a bit – Cambridge Tavern – sad shadow of it’s former self is ending its 35 year tenure of the corner of Campbell and Burns streets in the next few weeks. The area bounded by Campbell, Shakespeare, Raleigh and Burns is referred to, I see, in one document floating about, as Leamington Shopping Centre – well I suppose you would call it that, I guess, even if not strictly true. There is other stuff going on in there; Raleigh Street Christian Centre & Cambridge Montessori Preschool (the southern centre that is). And a new smallish tavern, a supermarket and ? – a shopping centre will be nice if well done.
