Get the camera out!

Hi everyone!
This past weekend I went on a fun field trip with a group of local photographers. Its the first time I've done anything like this but what a blast! I got to meet knew friends and we finished the day up with a picnic at a beautiful NZ beach as the sun was going down. Take a look at some of the pics I got.

First stop was at a quaint bohemian village called Puhoi. This photo was taken inside of their one room historic library.

We stopped off at a roadside graveyard.

Then off to some beautiful gardens.

I can never resist a flower pic. Spot the bee?

The owner of this horse had stopped off to buy an icecream to share with her mount!

Some friendly cows, intrigued by the cameras.

On the road to Sullivan's beach - Hmm... I wouldn't mind this spot for myself!

At the beach - daughter Rosie framed!

A serene late afternoon - just beautiful.

This is the life!

The photographers decided Rosie was a great model!

And to finish up the day - a rainbow snapped out of the car window on the way home,

Ahhhhhh....... A blissful day!

Creative Easter

This Easter I had the privilege of joining with artist friends to celebrate what is a very special time of year for me. The church I attend opened its doors to both the congregation and the public to come and celebrate the gift of Easter, through art. Beautiful people, young and old, came to express themselves through music, sculpture, floristry, painting, collaborative banners and more. The following photos give a glimpse of what it's been like. My wishes are belated now, but I am hoping you all had a lovely Easter, celebrating new life and new beginnings in a way that fits you!
