The Cream Trip Reworked

I have re-worked my older photo essay about a day out on the Bay of Islands Cream Trip which I did way back in the year 2002. The original essay was spread over multiple pages and had rather low-resolution low pixel sized images to cater for the slower web speeds then. It is now only …

Road Frustration

Quite often when I am outgoing somewhere and I see a photographic opportunity there is nowhere to pull over and safely stop off the road. So I carry on a while and if I haven’t gone too far past my objective when I find a wide enough shoulder to park off the road then I …
