Dream job

frog-897419_1920Is it too late to apply for my dream job?

The question would be… what is my dream job?

Well, as a full-time mother/teacher and INFJ person, I reckon that I would like to take Trey’s job for a spin.  Oh, and his yoga skills too.

Yes I can see myself travelling all over the place, staying in really nice digs, meditating and doing yoga.  Just need to brush up on my photography skills, convince my family that they can live without me, and learn yoga.

Hmm, not seeing that happening any time in the near future.  I can dream though, eh?

Maybe I should try for a travel writer’s position, with a special focus on taking your family in tow.  We could world-school and it would be paid for by some willing editor somewhere.  I’m sure I can string a few coherent sentences together.  Mostly.

Ahem.  Well, it’s worth putting out there isn’t it Universe.  A dream job that involves the family, semi-regular travel, nice digs, learning, creating, meditating and maybe the odd attempt at standing on my head. Yep, that sounds like a pretty good job to me.

What’s your dream job?

Anzac photography

In light of our recent commemorations of Anzac Day I thought I would share some photographs by a photographer I have followed on Flickr for a while now.  For reference the building is the National War Memorial here in Wellington.  There is only one building, not the multiple that the images look like.  I loved these as soon as I saw them and wanted to share his work with a wider audience, so here they are.  I just love what he has done with putting multiple images together in this instance.  Let’s see if you do too.

There are a couple more, including one with all of the medals.  He’s a great photographer and well worth looking through his other images too.  Lots of sports for those who love to see bodies in motion.

Nature’s Images

Here is the second installment of photographs. This time we widen the lens to a range of natural subjects, with water still featuring.

While not strictly *nature*, you can certainly see nature at work on Kaitaki as she is making her way out of Wellington harbour.  Even on relatively nice days I sometimes think the ferry crossing is not for the faint of heart.

The Lost Art of My Photography

It feels like a ridiculously long time since I last took my camera out and about for more than the odd action shot of my little Oh Wailys running around the place.  So tonight I thought it was time to straighten that out.
My first step is to bring all of my photographs back from my t’other blog, which is now set to private, and progressively share what I was doing all those many months ago.  Before life got busier and busier.

So let us start then.  Three or four, to be going on with for this post.  Pretty much all on a nautical theme.

I may like to walk by the water.  Maybe.  Perhaps.  And it does help somewhat that there is plenty to photograph around a harbour like Wellington.  I hope you liked seeing some of what I got up to last year.  I will try to catch up all of the old photographs first and then work towards actually taking some new ones.
