i’ve started going out for an hour long evening stomp around the locality in the aid of fitness.  it struck me i should be doing something with that time.  so here’s an attempt at a live photo.   what do you think ?  worth perservering with ?

(best comment on the video in youtube rather than here as comments still aren’t working.  sorry about that)

it’s funny the things you find in toilets on the other side of the planet.  ti’s probably about impossible to be any further away from church street london over here.  but there’s a sign hanging in a local pub.

a great cafe which used to be a fire station i think.  and you can also see the kiwi version of double yellow lines which are dotted yellow lines.  more excellent paint saving

i miss big british trees.  but i’m beginning to love the native versions.  like this comedically named ‘cabbage tree’
