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:
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!

Looking for something to do this weekend? If you're in Wellington, check out the MUNCH exhibition at Matchox Studios, at 166 Cuba St, Wellington! I have several pieces in the show including prints, 3d printed ceramics, plushies, and jewellery.
The last couple of months have been extremely busy, the highlight of which was the Typo Exhibition at Matchbox Studios in July. I had three pieces in the exhibition and attended the opening night.
This all means I have not been able to share as many interesting articles and news items on Twitter as I would have liked, but here are the highlights.
There has been a flurry of Iron Giant-related new in the last couple of months starting with the announcement in July that a 'Signature Edition' of the film will return to theatres in September.
In partnership with Khan Academy Pixar released 'Pixar in a Box' a series of lessons introducing the tools and processes of each department at the studio.
Last but not least, the trailer for The Good Dinosaur was released in July!
If you've ever wondered what a theme park run by Banksy would look like you're in luck! Dismaland Bemusement Park is open until September 27th in Weston-super-Mare in Britain.
