So we need the rain to fill our dams, but change wind direction so I can keep on painting :)

Well seems I still have a job be it reduced hrs to cover the govt wage amount, but lets hope we back to normal in 2 weeks time and this is sorted.
Going to be a great time at end of May for visiting all those sites in South Is with out 1000s of tourists.

Will also be the deciding factor temp wise if I could live down there .......Ive always live near a beach

May is spring time in the south, coldest is August/September.

This is from a couple of years ago when I went down to work on the old mans house before he moved into the rest home.....brrrrrr

Its feeling it ........ all I know is I've had enough of Auckland, my dream rivers lakes snow capped mountains. Jobs is an issue but horticulture work around Roxburgh may solve an issue as I just want a relaxed life style now with quite surrounds.

No work in Winter in Roxborough, possibly some in Queenstown with high rents, just like Auckland but has snow etc..

I hope everyone here is doing OK. It’s Easter Sunday and I’m saying “hopefully just over a week to go” - it somehow sounds shorter...

I’m slowly getting back into photography - hobbies wax and wane I guess!

I have a single strobe and a black backdrop - I think I’ll spend the last week having a play at single light headshots (my poor kids don’t know what they’re in for!)

Sean Tucker has a great video or two to get started...

Just an idea that may inspire! All the best folks!

I didn't think we had enough moisture lately to get those kind of flowers :-)
