The last two days I’ve been photographing all the people at Ottoboni so here’s a photo of me testing the light today.
We burned up so many dead trees and random old junk from the house this weekend. One room in the house, that’s from 1834 or so, that used to be the ‘junk room’ is now being transformed into the ‘museum room’.
Leaving Totaranui campground, New Zealand. May 2014.
We walked one stage of the Abel Tasman Great Walk. It was great to do this during low season, in May. We parked the camper van by the DOC camping (the free overnight carpark) in Totaranui and walked to the hut in Whariwharangi. The second day we walked back over the hill to the camping, picked the best spot and had a ice cold shower and a beer. On the third day in the national park we woke up to rain and decided to start our westbound drive instead of doing a day hike south on the track. So I never got to use my new, fantastic, expensive, ultralight rain pants…
New Zealand, South Island, May 2014.
We got up early to see the glaciers in morning light. But the sunrise on the camping ground won ‘best view of the day’ that day anyway.
I made everyone get up an early morning so I could bring home a family photo taken in the sun on the porch to our house in North Melbourne. The moment the second (which really was the first) photo fired the gate opened so Jess and I fell backwards. That’s why I’m so damn happy looking.
Compact living pt. 2. Bedroom/library/music studio/work space/dressing room.
We’ve actually been and looked at two flats these last days. Tough decisions to make now.
Exercising compact living at the moment. Our kitchen is housing: kitchen, diningroom, loungeroom, musicroom, greenhouse and hallway. That’s one good kitchen!
The last months I’ve been leaving for work before he gets up. That sweet little sleepy animal opens his eyes just when I comes in to say goodbye.
