I was in a bit of a mood to take photos with an actual camera this morning, after waking up earlier than expected and spending the pre-getting-out-of-bed time watching YouTube camera reviews, as you do. Feeling somewhat nolstagic, I brought the Fujifulm X100T along with me on my morning walk into the office. I’ve photographed… Continue reading Willow Tree by the Avon River
Went for a drive to Oxford today. Oxford is a town that I once thought of moving to many years ago, but the rush hour commute every weekday on the long, straight Tram Road drive didn’t appeal. My work setup in recent years has become rather flexible, and possibly remain flexible for the foreseeable future,… Continue reading Day Trip to Oxford Township
There’s been a couple of new orchid additions to the household recently. It’s amazing how there always seem to be enough room for orchids here… Geoff loves all sorts of orchids, and I personally find Paphiopedilums irresistible 🙂
Another lovely day to be out for a walk in #Ōtautahi #Christchurch #Aotearoa #NewZealand. Not usually a fan of savoury muffins but apparently is a must when at @c1espresso.
I love walking through Hagley Park when the sky isn’t pouring down with rain. Here’s some lovely photos that I’ve taken with my cellphone on my way home.
The sun has finally emerged after having disappeared for almost two weeks. The walkabout in town is pretty much a given! Apparently we did just around 13,000 steps today, but I’m sure that the calories consumed balanced that out. Here’s some pictures taken today (with the rainy photo taken a few days ago). All taken… Continue reading Christchurch City Walkabout
Nothing beats a lovely walkabout in the city when the sun is out in Christchurch, especially when the city is a mere 45-60 minutes walk away – combining exercise and sightseeing is nice 🙂 Apparently we did almost 12,000 steps! There’s also a trendy new eatery place that’s opened called The Welder. It’s established in… Continue reading Christchurch City Walkabout
Autumn’s my favourite season of the year. The colours of the city really stands out during this season, accentuated by the low angle of the sunlight throughout the day. You can’t beat a walkabout in the city on a sunny autumn’s day.
We got our freedom back two days ago in the sense that we’re now allowed to go outside for non-essential things, such as for entertainment and for non-essential shopping. We went out for a walk to stretch our legs, and somehow ended up in the city centre which is full of people. There weren’t many… Continue reading First Weekend of Freedom
It’s been a very long time since I’ve taken “proper” photos with the 2007 Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX30 compact point-and-shoot camera. After all, with cellphones producing technically higher resolutions than this camera today, it makes little sense to use this antiquated digital camera for taking any photos, right? Hmm, I think this camera still have useful… Continue reading Autumn Garden
