I am rather late with this – two days – old news. Been soaking up history being made. On Tuesday morning when clearing our mailbox I found a flyer inviting us to a meet the candidate do the previous evening. I am sorry I missed it. I must admit that I did notice the six party hoarding installation, at the house in question, had been joined by a seventh – when arriving home on Monday – but could not read it as I turned the corner.
This I must add is the very house that sent out a charming young man, not so long ago, to tell us – and other surrounding homeowners – they were having a party and could be a little noisy that evening. Pity they didn’t use the same approach – it worked for me.
Photographs I see daily. A portrait of mine from the mid ’90s and a David Cook before and after from his Rotowaro project.
This, this and the resulting discussion along with this goldmine and something for the family archive my cousin Lena Kenny currently a student at Massey University (in the background of the accompanying photo). Lena, her sister Alice and Dad Gavin visited us briefly on Tuesday.
Alice Kenny & Lena Kenny Tuesday afternoon the 8th of July 2008.
Zosterops lateralis – we call them Waxeyes. Known, also, as Silvereye, White-eye and Tauhou (stranger). A native, of recent times, having migrated from Australia in the 19th century in numbers sufficient to establish themselves as a common enough sight almost everywhere. By others: here and here.
Outside our dining room window this morning, Waxeyes, like so many tiny, feathered merrkats, feasting on bread put out for them (I think there were eight or ten but it is almost impossible to tell as they are constantly on the go nervously eating and on guard. I don’t think any of these images taken between 8:12 and 8:25 this morning, is sharp – I admit photographing wildlife is not really my thing).
