… was to gaqther my gear together and take a trip to the Glenbrook Vintage Railway after bein inspired by a post from Leanne Cole, with a side trip to the Wiatangi Falls.
… just before leaving, a light drizzle started, and looked like getting worse during the afternoon.
… go through old and recent photos, sorting to see if there is something worth sharing.
This table top was made from a slab of kauri about 6 feet long, 4 feet wide, and abuot 2 inches thick. What made it even more interesting was that voids in the wood were filled with acrylic and objects had been inset into the acrylic. Here is a key inset in a large section of acrylic.
While wandering around I found this statue nestled among the trees. As the light was fading as night arrived, I used the flash. I tried several ISO settings, with differing flash compensations, and liked this shot best.
Here is another table – this one has old coins in the acrylic – a half crown ( 2 / 6 d), a half penny, and a thruppence (top to bottom). A scary thougth is that I rememeber using this money when I was young, and New Zealand changed to decimal currency in 1967!
There is something exotic about the bird of paradise flowers, and this one is indeed very birdlike!
(The above 4 photos were taken while on holiday for the Goat Island snorkelling holiday)
Live, laugh, Love.
