Squibble Design on Shapeways



You may have noticed that my Project 365 posts fell by the wayside a few months back. It got into the middle of winter and there was a week where I didn't go out at all because the weather was so bad. This put a damper on my efforts as I was already behind uploading all my photos to Flickr. I am quite keen to try a wi-fi enabled SD card for my digital camera - this would allow me to transfer photos I like immediately to my iPhone or iPad so I can edit them on the spot and upload them at once.

As I was so far behind, I decided to let the project go for a little while, although I continued to enjoy taking photos whenever I could.

This included a fun experiment with an original Polaroid OneStep, learning how to use manual settings on my digital camera, and many photos on a recent trip to Auckland.

I thought I would post some of the best photos from each month starting with April:

Wellington in November

Halloween is usually a bit of a non-event here in New Zealand. The event that I really look forward to at this time of year is Guy Fawkes. Here in Wellington there is always a huge fireworks display on the waterfront, and this year there was also a small carnival! I love the cheesy and slightly creepy atmosphere of carnival sideshow attractions, and this one did not disappoint!
