After setting up a bunch of Facebook pages over the past four years I have finally succumbed, or should I say managed, to get around to publishing my own. Likes are more than welcome!

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.
