Out in the garden a little earlier. Love these flowers, Sisyrinchium Striatum. Native of Argentina and Chile if the label is to be believed!

Totara quite close to the carpark at Totara Park, Auckland, New Zealand. When I saw this tree I thought of a black and white image; great shape to the tree and the texture in the bark is so lovely. We're very fortunate to have so many beautiful native trees here at Totara Park.

Same place as the previous post, just a few seconds between shots and the sun is rising reasonable quickly. Now I can get a bit of a sunburst effect. Does this work better? Just curious ;-)

Same place as the last photos, but with a different mood. A few of my friends seem to like this shot so I thought I'd share it with my G+ friends too. I wasn't sure what to think about the image. In many ways I quite like it because it reminds me of an early morning walk through Totara Park last month. That's the sun rising and peeping through the trees, palms and ferns. When I saw the scene it made me think of a primitive untouched jungle or bush. Not sure if that's what you imagine when you see it or not!

Wow!  It's been so long since I was here!!  Work is the excuse I'll use but it really is the reason.  Not much opportunity to take photographs of the bands, flora and fauna or landscapes.  Most of my time is taken up with property photography and videography.  Hopefully I'll find some more time to shoot different things and interact more with you lovely people on here.

Over the past few days I've had the chance to spend a bit more time with my daughter and go out for a few walks.  Hopefully the attached will amuse you and let you know that I still take a camera with me pretty well where ever I go.

Another glorious day here in Godzone!  I'd been fooling around shooting into the sun, just curious to see how much flare I'd get.  Can't spend too much time taking photos when out walking with wifey ... just snapshots usually.  Hopefully a few of these snaps will amuse you and tempt you to try shooting straight at the sun.

I was out listening to some friends on stage earlier this evening when who should come along and join in but Brian Smith!  What a treat ... such a talented musician.  Here's a shot taken earlier this evening ... quite lovely warm tones ... just like the music ;-)

I think it started on the 22nd June … hard to say, but I think that was the day. For some bizarre reason, every time I tried to use my Nik Plugins for Photoshop to edit my photos, Photoshop would crash. Talk about stressful! I’ve spent quite some time creating a range of filters and techniques that have now become a significant part of my image processing workflow. Then, on the 22nd June, it all started going wrong. I could open Photoshop, edit and save a file but any subsequent image I tried to edit would cause Photoshop to crash. I had to open and close Photoshop for each image I wanted to edit and, as you can imagine, this was taking forever. I was at a loss as to what could be wrong. I checked online and found little to help. I suppose, as a last resort, not expecting much in the way of a response, I contacted Google and told them of my problems. They were wonderful! I received a quick response and then had regular communication with them as they endeavoured to identify and then resolve the problem. As you can guess by the title of the post, they managed to fix the issue and I’m now able to return to my usual workflow. So, a big thanks to the Nik Software Suite support team!!
