Spotted in the Cambridge CBD – maps in hand – this morning, Saturday, the 16th of January 2010. They did appear to be at the very least on an orienteering expedition – could they be scoping out a New Zealand adventure race? I really have no idea.
This comfortable and enduring window display has marked the Colonial Heritage Antiques corner of Duke and Empire Streets in Cambridge NZ CBD forever. Ever changing and continually fascinating -books of Aotearoa New Zealand – not surprisingly – more often than not feature as focal point for the display.

The area around Cambridge Primary School – the corner of Wilson & Duke Streets and Hally’s Lane on the south-western edge of Cambridge CBD – is architecturally interesting with the refurbished school and new Cambridge Volunteer Fire Brigade building complimenting one another and the two Simply Divine buildings on the northern side of Duke Street. Simply Divine Furniture inhabits the former Salvation Army church while beside it Simply Divine Bathroom & Bedroom, on the corner of Hally’s Lane, was purpose-built in the past couple of years. The photograph above shows Cambridge Primary’s hall from Wilson Street – the day gallery (Thursday 12/11/2009) with more photos of the area is here.

My name is Michael Jeans. I am a native of Cambridge. Cambridge born and bred I grew up at Whitehall – educated at Whitehall Primary and Cambridge High. I have been Cambridge based for much of my life and a photographer for most of my working career.
Typical of photography services in smaller centres I offer the full range of what we refer to these days as imaging services. Wedding and portrait photography – the very popular and important skills of photo restoration, archiving and storage – photography for business, real estate and insurance. The whole bit. Visual branding and promotion.
I am very, very partial to my home town uniquely hugging the Waikato River – its twinness – Cambridge and Leamington – its place as a Waikato agribusiness centre for dairying – as much as an equine centre.
Playing my part in promoting our place I maintain an on line diary or journal – there’s a year’s worth on line at the moment – a visual blog which in part celebrates and promotes the authentic Cambridge I know and love.
I am always on the look out for new and interesting stuff about our place – as I always say – quirky but effective – providing a window on our place for us and the rest of the world to enjoy. I look forward to working with you.
