Leisurely Drives

Leisurely Drives

Hello! I got lots of great feedback from you guys about my postย Leisurely Walks. I really loved going through all the photos I had taken while I was out on a walk. So this may start a series of sorts, where I write less, and let my photos do the talking.

Yesterday, we had some lovely weather here in Wellington for a change. It was nicer than it had been in weeks. Instead of walking around though, we had plans to go out and spend some time with Rory’s family which is not walking distance. It’s a 15 minutes drive out of town, and while we were driving, I took out my phone and started taking photos for no real reason, other than I wanted to.

Have a look!

Earth and the Wonders I’ve Seen

For my interpretation of this week’s photo challenge, I’ll take a look at all the places I’ve visited here onย Earth.

I haven’t travelled as much as I want to, but I have seen quite a few incredible things.

In my home country of New Zealand, I hiked the Tongariro Crossing and saw the Emerald Lakes.

I went to Sydney, and I was able to see the Blue Mountains, an impressive rock formation.

Leisurely Walks

Hello all! I would like to complain about the weather. The weather has sucked here lately. We have been lucky enough to have one sunny day here or there, but as we head into more of autumn, and then winter (ugh), I’m sure we will see more grey and rain.

I thought it would be nice to upload photos of past summer days where Rory and I would walk around town. We’d walk around the waterfront, Courtenay Place, and just look around. I would constantly stop to take photos of whatever interested me. I’ve posted some of these photos before, but I have a lot sitting in my phone.ย So I thought I would pick out the best and show them to you guys, while I wait for the rain to go away.

Surprises

Surprises

Surprise. I thought for a while over what photo I could use for this. I also tried to think of what interpretation I could do. Should I find a photo that I was surprised that came out well? Or a photo where I surprised someone?

Recently, we visited Fiji. In fact, if you’re a regular on my ย blog, you might recognise this photo. But it was of a sunset during our stay in Taveuni, Fiji. Rory and I were inside hanging out, then we came out for dinner, and were greeted by this sight.

Or, I could show a photo of how surprised we were that the sea could really be that clear. That snorkelling, was a surprisingly fun experience.

Or maybe, I should share this photo my friends took of me looking shocked and slightly crazy, cause they plotted with my now husband to throw me an impromptu hens night a few weeks ago.

If that doesn’t convey surprise, then I don’t know what does.

Anyway, that’s my entry for this week’s Photo Challenge. Thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

My Security (WPC)

My Security (WPC)

This week’s photo challenge is about Security. I wasn’t sure what to do about that at first, but then I came up with my interpretation. What makes me feel safe. That’s easy.

My family.

I’ve been lucky enough to have such a wonderful and supportive family. I won’t talk about them too much, as I’ve already made a long post talking about their awesomeness inย Family and Life.

My family also has a newest addition who everyone has welcomed with open arms from when they first met him 5 and a half years ago. My husband, Rory.

We’ve pretty much spent (almost) everyday together since we met back at the tail end of ย 2011. He has given me a sense of security and home. I moved out of home to be with him back in 2014, and now we’re married and thinking of buying our own home together in the next couple of years.

That’s my photo interpretation of security.

Dense (WPC)

Dense (WPC)

This week, I looked back through my photos and thought of how to interpretย Dense. I landed on a few photos. They’re all nature related. I’ll show each one and explain how I think it fits the theme.

Dec.21.2013 Looking up a tree

This first one is of a tree. I think it was in Pollard Park again. I don’t know what kind of tree it is, if someone knows, then let me know ๐Ÿ™‚

All I know is that I was very impressed by the magnitude and density of this tree. It was huge, and incredibly thick.

This one was fromย Tongariro Crossing. We did this last month in February, and it was incredible. The beginning part surrounded you with wetlands, filled with dense grass and rocks. The whole walk itself is definitely a must do in New Zealand. It takes you through an amazing range of terrain.

Another nature one! This time from my time doing theย Salkantay Trek. The last part of the second day took us through an amazing forest. In fact, it was the top part of the Amazon Rainforest,ย which I have also been lucky enough to visit. ย You can also see how dense the fog is at the top of the picture.

So there you go, that’s my multiple entries into the weekly photo challenge. Normally, I try to narrow it down to one. But the topic is so interpretive, that I wanted to show all my ideas! I hope you had fun looking at the photos, I’m going to go have a look at what others have done too!
