Friday, September 21…its our last day of third term.
School’s out for two weeks
MGW has not been well this week and
Monday morning and will (hopefully) be
winging our way to New Zealand
for a quiet road trip before our son’s wedding.
Some of the extended family are already
enjoying the sights and experiences
to be found in
The Land of the Long White Cloud.
Not a great variety of bikes this week.
On display at a nearby market day a few years back.
Some of Melbourne’s ‘rent a bike’ collection.
MGW was nearly run down by
a motor scooter similar to this one.
It ran a red light.
After this incident we were told
the lights were/are only a ‘suggestion’ 🙂
Tower of London ‘rent a bike’ collection.
Cadel Evans Classic last year.
Sorrento, Naples, motorbikes
I use elephants as Large Subjects.
However, this week I thought I would use
some Auckland sightings.
These two are at Auckland Airport…
after a mad weekend celebrating
Number 1 Son’s engagement.
Mad as in the travel etc. We party quietly! 🙂
Even this comparatively small plane
would be larger than many cars.
Have opted for Golden Hour photos
Only a matter of weeks ago and probably
through our living room window.
An African setting sun.
However we did not stop to take a sunset photo.
We were photographing the leopard lying on the limb
in the top right hand corner.
Below is a cropped and over brightened
All other photos the leopard is quite visible.
I have often said that I would have gone home happy,
on this, the third day of our Safari.
Then things only got better.
Almost shooting from the hip I managed to capture
what I think is a reasonable photo of
this helicopter as it covers the Cadel Evans bike race
around the Geelong area earlier this year.
Touchdown after our flight over
the Okavango Delta in 2014.
Although this is Johannesburg Airport,
I am mentally and physically preparing
for my flight to Heathrow in about three weeks.
