Auckland

AM | photo by @alistairkeddie Good morning @burndiary. Spotted yesterday outside of Auckland Museum. Been an interesting week off work and free to pursue some creative photography. First time I’ve worked on a diary challenge like this and like that its pushed me in some new directions that I’m keen to explore moving forward with my own feed. All comes down to time though and its back to reality tomorrow (AM) with a sharp return to the day job, yikes!

Number 72, Grey Lynn | photo by @alistairkeddiePassing through Grey Lynn today (a local Auckland burb) and stopped to grab some colour with this eye catching Kiwi shed. Enjoying the challenge of @burndiary and coming up on a week since first post. Thanks for all the comments, follows and likes so far, hope you’re all having a good weekend.

Pohutukawa

Pohutukawa with Rangitoto | photo by @alistairkeddieAs mentioned before, most of the pohutukawa trees are going out of season but a few are still in bloom. So thought I’d post today showing off their vibrant reds. I found this one growing yesterday along the sea front at St Helier’s Bay, another of the city beaches.Out on the horizon sits Rangitoto, an iconic Auckland landmark and extinct shield volcano that last erupted some 600 years ago forming the island. According to Wiki, the name translates to ‘Bloody Sky’ and is remembered in local Maori legend. The island today is a reserve and home to the largest pohutukawa forest in the world.

Street walker

Street walker | photo by @alistairkeddieI’ve been experimenting with long exposures in my work for some time now and am working on a series of hand held captures shot around a busy street crossing in the centre of Auckland. Using a 6 stop filter to slow down shutter speed and moving with the flow of people seems to work best in creating some startling light painting effects. Managed to grab a couple the other day and thought I’d share this evening.

Palm

Hand with shell and black sand | photo by @alistairkeddieRachel holds a white spiral shell and some black sand for the camera. The sand has a very high iron content which turns the beach into a giant heat sink soaking up strong sun to the point of burning feet. Bethell’s Beach, North Island, New Zealand
