Creating this image was all about asking questions of the past. Who were the people that once gathered here and why? Where were they going? Were they excited? Were they travelling alone or were they travelling as a group and when was it last used?

So this is me at the moment: I’m really enjoying exploring images that represent a place and time and hint at a human presence at the moment. Personally, I think that by capturing representations of human life that show the passing of time, it gives me a stronger inner connection to my own memories but it also allows me to connect and make sense of the world around me.

Wherever My Thoughts Take Me

Wandering Amazed In Thought

Normally when I’m at the Esplanade I’m running on tight time frames. Either the light is quickly disappearing and there isn’t much time to scan what’s going on or I have to dash off to work so time is limited.

Since it’s the school holidays however, I’ve had more time to let my mind wander and go where ever my thoughts take me. That led me to this image as I watched people come and go from park benches and the waves break before disappearing from view below the seawall.

That So Many Have Seen.

Like a lot of other people, Second Beach is a favourite spot of mine. There’s something very enticing about the small curved bay that is tucked beyond the point of St Clair. Personally, I prefer to be down on the rocks along the beach, scrambling over them, avoiding the seaweed and wood that has been washed ashore. On this occasion it was high tide so I had to stay tucked up nice and close to the bank to get this shot as the high tide roared in carrying lots of debris with it.

Pastel Colours

The Day Along.

I took this late last month just after sunset at the Esplanade. There was still a decent amount of surfers in the water getting in a last run before darkness took hold however I spotted two surfers floating out where the light was reflecting off the ocean. Don’t you just love the gentle pastel colours in the sky? What a peaceful way to end the day.

St Clair Glow

A Glow Where The Sun Goes Down.

Isn’t this light great? At St Clair the air is filled with small amounts of mist, ocean spray, sand and salt that can be seen from a distance. It’s like an eternal cloud hanging in the air over the Esplanade. On this occasion I caught it as the light from the sunset hit it which created this wonderful glow .

But The Sky Is Still Lit

Doesn’t this look like a nice evening? It was right at that time when night starts to take over but the sky is still lit up by all sorts of nice colours. A view like this gives you a real sense of how the sky changes from light to dark as the sunset drops below the horizon. In actual fact, when I took this it was incredibly windy with lots of sand blowing up from the beach into my face. The grass gives it away as you can see it blowing in all sorts of direction. It was closing in on high tide as well. Usually there are lots of people using this track on a Sunday evening however on this occasion it was deserted. No takers for the beach I guess!

Whatever The Reason

The Surfing Addition

Maybe it was the tail of the long weekend or maybe lots of people have taken 3 extra days off to given themselves a 10 day break, or it could be that everybody just clocked off early and headed for the surf. Whatever the reason, the conditions yesterday afternoon drew a fair crowd to the break at St Clair who enjoyed the high teen temperatures, the lack of wind and the enjoyable swell that was certainly fun. Here’s a short roll for you to enjoy.

Dusk on St Kilda Beach

And now the next time returns again.

This is a sunset from last month I shot at dusk on St Kilda Beach. I always shoot with an end image in mind and that’s just what I did with this image. I had to do some image correction as the original had gone a little bit fisheye-ish on the sides but after a quick setting change in Lightroom it was all fixed.

And now the next time returns again – Buy

Don’t forget to listen.

I can’t believe it’s been a week since my last blog post. I try and post every day but the last week has been so full on I just didn’t manage it. However, now I’m determined not to miss another day!

It was a Dunnerstunner in Dunedin today and I couldn’t resist a trip to Warrington Beach about 5pm to end the day. There were a few people scattered up and down the beach who obviously had the same idea. While I was there I was playing around at shooting with some angled sunlight washing in from the corner as the waves broke.
