The last few months, I have been focusing on something that I didn't think I would get back to this soon. Work. Luckily, my work is fun. It's photography, of course.

Ok. Heatwave is maybe overdoing it. But it's been hot here lately. Easily 27C in the shade and horrible in the sun. And to remind everyone not in NZ, we are lacking that vital part of the sky - the ozone. The sun is scorching. Sunscreen, hats, sunnies. You can never be too careful. Needless to say,… Continue reading The Great Wellington Heatwave of 2015!
