Friday My Town Shoot Out

We have just had the most beautiful weekend here in the "Winterless North." After a very long and stressful week, we headed off to one of our many BEAUTIFUL beaches.

So on Saturday night, I popped out to one of our supermarkets and bought some ingredients and headed home - inspired by our photo shoot theme this week - and decided to make some food for a picnic on the beach.

So here's a pic of my little interpretation of "outdoor food."
(Hen and Chicken Islands in the background!)

It was a gorgeous day, and I have entered this week feeling on top of the world!

I then just have to add this AWESOME picture (well, at least I think it's awesome :) ) that I managed to catch - being in the right place at the right time!

Life is a beach!

Friday My Town Shoot Out

July 24 Assignment - REFLECTIONS

I have had an extremely busy week and haven't been able to focus on the topic, however after joining blogging and "Friday My Town Shoot Out" I decided to head out to my favourite spot - just 15 minutes from where I live.

This is Matapouri Bay on the Tutukaka Coast ...

I can't wait for summer and daylight savings ...

trips here after work with wine and picnic basket

and my gorgeous fiance ... what more could I ask


And just because I found the "Love Boat"

Looking forward to seeing all of your pics and to "life" with Friday My Town Shoot Out

Natural Beauty

Yesterday I was "re-inspired" to get out there and persue my passion again...PHOTOGRAPHY! (with thanks to Pauline).
This morning I woke up early and got my fiance and a friend to hop in the car...and said "we're heading North."
I found beauty in some very "arb" things and captured the natural beauty of this new place I call home!
I will post photos of my day out tomorrow, but am just so excited to have this "fire for photography" again!

New to blogging and looking forward to showing my photography and looking for comments and people with shared passion for capturing life through a lens.
