We are having a night at Rotorua, a very welcome visit to our family, photo catch up time, and also to collect the next item for my Diploma study. A computer desk, from Trade Me. Super size, room for my sewing machine in the hard drive compartment, 3 drawers, and a keyboard tray perfect for my laptop when I need to do some fabric cutting. Lucky Me !!!
First stop was coffee break, at a shady place along the Desert Road. It had been showery for some time, and a very cool breeze.
Here is the man, with his very original covered in trailer. I have shown it in old fashioned print colour, reminiscent of the olden days. We had coffee sitting inside, snug out of all cold wind and rain that was almost sleet,
The tree is a “ Lucerne tree” grown specially for the Wood Pigeons, they feed off the flowers and leaf buds. The Kereru feathers shine.
My challenge for this week was to take a photo in “ Bokeh”, this is the blur or the aesthetic quality of the blur in out-of-focus areas of an image. So the twigs and buds needed not to be in focus. I leant over the deck railing, and the magnolia buds were there waiting.
George had his eyes on the pigeon, but it was too fast!! He isn’t the best when scaling trees, and getting down is always difficult. After looking carefully, he clambered down slowly.
