I photographed a wedding this afternoon. I found out about this by text – an SOS from a friend – at 08:24:40. Here’s the bride’s bouquet at 1349. I will tell you all about it. Later. A link to a small gallery of photos of said wedding. Updated 8/3/2011.
1 Grantham Street, Hamilton, New Zealand.
Abbie has just returned from a trip through Spain and Portugal.
The olive plantations looked to be corporate farming, much as our dairy farming is headed. The era of the small family farm appeared to be over in much of the countryside that we passed through. Often there were no residences visible for considerable distances and no indications of boundaries to suggest the smaller holdings of old. It was interesting to reflect on the debate at home regarding lifestylers populating our countryside. We had been discussing it before I left and came to the conclusion that, on balance, small holdings and lifestyle blocks add a welcome diversity to the countryside.
