Last Supper

Well, the last meal of '09...
A lovely summer's eve and some prawns on the barbie - superb.
Best wishes to you all for many a fine meal, with many a fine friend
throughout 2010.
Don't forget to take plenty of photos, whether it's on film or
digital, camera or phone, straight or retouched - shoot first, ask
questions later!

Kiwi Christmas Tree

What's summer without an image of a pohutukawa in flower? This is one
of many in full bloom locally in Miramar and given the Lomo camera

'twas the night before....

The angel had to take second place to the simple star this year.
A pretty basic image so I used the 'Tilt Shift' app & 'Best Camera'
app to try & add a bit of visual interest.
Best wishes to anyone out there stumbling across my blog - how about
leaving a comment...?
Merry Christmas!

Quick, it's lunchtime...

So, for a little more video geekery I made a time-lapse video of a group of local photographers arriving at a Christmas lunch gathering. This was captured at 1 frame every 2 seconds & playback is at 15 fps.
It seems that this blogsite compresses video quite a bit - sorry for low quality. Probably better quality here -

Scenes from the Red Carpet

For my first video post direct from the iPhone 3GS - here's a fairly
rough piece of overhead filming of local hero & band manager
extraordinaire Murray Hewitt (AKA Rhys Darby) at The Lovely Bones premiere.
(it will be compressed when uploaded).
- I did post some video last summer from my earlier 3G phone, but it
was shot via a non-Apple application.

And on the red carpet tonight...

Well there were a lot of glammed-up people & some genuine celebs, once
you got a view thru' all the keen fans.
This was the Wellington premier of Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones,
and it was another sparkling affair.

Off to market

....or maybe he's been to the shops already...either way, perhaps
there's a market for a shopping trolley/zimmer frame! Hmmmm "hello, is
that the patent office?".

Traffic report

Thankfully, non-exsistant. While working on a project to photograph
the inside of some tunnels on State Highway One I grabbed a few shots
on the iPhone - very weird feeling to be standing on a piece of road
that doesn't have pedestrian access.
