Rain, rain, rain

....oh, and a bit of lightning. The weather forecast app on the iPhone
isn't renowned for it's accuracy, but it seems to confirm what other
forecasts are saying. Hello damp autumn!

All aboard!

A trip to see a friend off from the railway station is of course a
great photo op. Followed up by a dose of 'cross process' from Photo
fx. Love the typeface used on the clock.

Night Fever

At a 'significant' birthday recently - great location, great people,
great music...but it wouldn't have been the same without the disco
ball! Added a little 'cross star' magic with the Photo fx application.

It's gotta be official

So I guess this photo from our front lawn is all the proof we need
that summer is gone and autumn is here. No more awkward situations
where I thought shorts and jandals where suitable attire.

Don't Jump!

This cast iron sculpture along Wellington's waterfront is hard to walk
past without thinking how much it really looks a naked man leaning
into the wind. As with the shot of the couple sitting on the bench -
the iPhone's wee lens is prone to flare when pointed toward the sun
(not always a bad thing).

By the sea

The best camera to record a scene, as always, is the one you have with

Ain't none fresher

From the hen house to the frypan. Just a hint of selective focus
applied via the TiltShift app.

Easter Egg Hunt

So, I was hoping for chocolate... but I guess these girls aren't
actually the Easter Bunny. A touch of dappled morning light works a
treat - which is why there's an app to add it to an image (this is the
real deal tho'!).

Home town chic

Back in Gisborne for a school centennary reunion & catch up with old
friends (yes, a lot older). If I didn't know the roads so well, I
could have had more use out of the downloaded GPS travel app that I
have on the iPhone.

A new me

One of the geeky forums I inhabit had 2 people who's avatars were
photos of themselves behind I changed my one to this.
Another fine iPhone app came to the rescue for this - OldBooth

Still green

I guess it won't be long before leaves will be changing colour and
falling. The clocks are turned back, I've packed away the BBQ, and the
sun has lost it's heat. The talk of Apple's next generation iPhone is
hotting up, tho', so that's something to look forward to.

Weekend pleasure

A bit naughty, but a great way to waste away a hour or three, is to
settle in to the cafe in Borders to browse the latest magazines.
People have usually taken up a good selection of reading material to
read so I don't bother to grab anything off the shelves myself...maybe
next time.

3 wheels, or 2?

This futuristic trike was on display at a 'Ride to Work' event I
visited on the scooter early this week. The two wheels up front give
it a mean look & it sounded like it had a lot of grunt.

Overhead Cables

A couple of new trolly busses taking workers home to the eastern
suburbs in the late (almost autumn) twilight. All very poetic.
