Some unexpected moments

from 2018.I rose with the sparrows and drove 45 minutes

to Point Lonsdale for a sunrise shoot last March. 

Expectations were high. 

Results were low. 

And after being blown around by a chilly breeze

I decided to pack my gear away and head home.

I had walked about a quarter of the way

back along the pier

when this rainbow appeared above the lighthouse. 

I had no more than two minutes

to grab a camera and capture some images…

then it was gone as quickly as it appeared. 

Unexpectedly.

Also this time last year I had no idea we would

celebrate our Wedding Anniversary with 

First Class Dining in a private cabin

aboard the Q Train.

June in Canada and we did not expect

to experience falling snow….even on

the Columbia Icefield.

 

This time last year we did expect a trip

to Auckland for an engagement party. 

However, a wedding date had not been settled upon

and so our September/October trip

back (to New Zealand) for the

wedding of Number 1 Son

to Number 2 Daughter-in-Law

was unexpected but enjoyable.

I always find it fascinating to sit and…

…watch the movements outside at an airport.

In this case it was Auckland nearly 12 months ago.

Cruising the Swan River in Western Australia.

Viewing some expensive real estate.

Inside looking out…and…

…outside looking in.

It is the same window.

 

My favorite ‘window’ shot from last year.

The view out our Matmata BnB in New Zealand.  🙂

Matamata is near the Hobbit Movie Set

~~~~~

Our biggest celebrations over recent years

has been our Sons’ weddings.

Number 2 Son married just over two years…

And think the Bridal Waltz took a bit of practice...lots of it. 

 But they looked good.

 

Number 1 Son was married in Auckland in early October

Though difficult to see, the celebrants are there,

and musicians are rehearsing one last time. 

And the Church was immaculate. 

Everyone was waiting for the bridal party.

 

 

followed by a wonderful setting for the reception at

Auckland’s Riverhead Boat House.
