Daily Photo Challenge - Week 4

So here we are the at the end of week 4.  This literally means I have managed to follow this goal for 28 days straight.

What did I learn this week?

1. There are not enough hours in the day (literally).  

2. Inspiration for new photos comes in all forms.  Someone said 'how did you come up with that photo?'.  My response - I didn't, it kind of just happened

3. I am beginning to understand the mantra of 'never work with animals or children'.  While Mr A is a fantastic little model he is starting to get sick of being the focus of my lens!

4. My fellow friends following this challenge have an incredible amount of talent, and I am enjoying looking at all their amazing photos.  All of us are self taught, and the majority are amateur so I feel everyone is doing fantastically well :)

A wee movie...

I love my Mac.

Except I really don't use it to its full potential.

For those of you who have Windows and are into photography or anything design... GET A MAC!!  You won't regret it!

This movie is a summary of our trip away, and was put together in a matter of a couple of hours using the fantastic iMovie programme.

Daily Photo Challenge Week 3

This week saw us road tripping to Tauranga then onto the Coromandel.  Fortunately this meant lots and lots of photographic inspiration, and for once I was spoilt for choice when it came to posting my favourites!

Its been a quiet few days...

Happy New Year to everyone!!  I hope those who have managed to get away have stayed safe and dry in this awful weather we've been experiencing!

Mr A is still very under the weather, lots of temperature spikes which hasn't been fun for any of us, although I do have to appreciate that if we were at work I would be taking a lot of time off so its almost better its happened during the holidays.  It did mean however we had a very quiet New Years Eve at home - we haven't been in Auckland since 2000 for NYE, and I can't actually remember the last time I spent it at home!  Very lucky we did though as Mr A woke shortly after midnight with a temp of 39.5 so I didn't get much sleep at all - very similar to a normal New Years minus the hangover :).

Because of his sickness we haven't been out and about much - we did a little trip to feed the local ducks today and that was about our lot - if he's feeling up to it tomorrow we are going to head into Motat as he loves cars, trucks - basically anything that has a motor so I think he will really enjoy it.

Oh, and here are some photos :)
