The True Spirit Of Rugby Union

I'm sure all sports are like this, maybe. On the field using any means legal and necessary to win, off the field it's mates with smiles. Here we see the All Back captain, Kieran Read, and Welsh captain, Alun Wyn Jones, after the third-place playoff in the Rugby World Cup 2019. Some great photos from this game over at World.Rugby

God Rays

Who doesn't love a good session of God Rays?

Moon, Stars, City Lights

There Is A Name For This

The name for this landscape view that has different levels of shadows/greyness of distant hills against hills is ... aaaaah, I keep forgetting!!!

The Malthouse Balcony

On Willis Street there is a balcony. Known by many, loved by some, forgotten by most.  Thank you Rob for honouring the memories.

Raj In The Recording Studio

For 6 years Raj and I shared the stories of Aotearoa New Zealand people that were creating startups, working in tech, and from the media. Access Granted NZ was a labour of love, gave us many adventures, and allowed us to meet so many amazing people. It'll always be a happy memory for me.

Flapping For Luck

The All Blacks need all the luck, and a lot more skill and oomph, this weekend as they take on South Africa one more time.

Turtle Time

Turtles getting out on the log.

Bush Church

Whilst Staglands has plenty of birds and farm animals it also has a few 'bush buildings', which are all originals. There's a jail, a smithy, a general store, all from the early/mid-1800s when pakeha were expanding out into the depleting bush. And of course, the Victorians claimed to be good honest Christians (as they stole land and killed those they had done deals with), so a church is a must.

"No, she didn't, did she?"

Sharing gossip with a Kunekune.

Painted Feathers

The feathers on this gorgeous red masked bird* have the feel of an 18th century painter.  anyone know the name of this bird species?

Peacocks Are Astounding

Like glowing sunsets , dramatic clouds , and people in my life I can not stop myself taking photos of the finest of fancy bird , the Peacock.

"Oi, you, where d'you think you're going?"

"This 'ere be goose land. You just turn around and me and the lads will say no more abaht it"!

Meeting Time

That time when Jacinda Ardern, Prime Minister of Aotearoa New Zealand, got to meet Mike.
