Taking pictures

I know I usually string words together for the sake of amusement, entertainment, information or occasionally even inspiration, but I haven’t been feeling particularly wordy lately. What I have been doing a lot though is taking photographs of the stuff all around me. I carry my camera everywhere I go and if the saying, ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’ has any basis in reality then here are the equivalent of about 40,000 words. These are images of Central New Zealand, nowhere in particular. Mostly Rangitikei and Northern Manawatu. Everyone knows and has seen the big tourism images of all the famous places in New Zealand. There are the other places, the places most people don’t spend too much time photographing. But it’s a beautiful place. Here, I’ll show you.

See, it’s nice here.

  1. Fabulous photos! I don’t know as much of the North Island, but you capture its beauty perfectly… now you just need to trip down to the South Island and capture my back door step too, for all your global followers! One of these days I’ll improve my photography skills myself 🙂

    • Cheers Susan, I have some photos of the South Island. Everybody photographs the South Island. I thought it was time someone showcased the Lower Central North Island. 🙂

      • That is true about the South Island, although there are a few off the beaten track places here that are stunning and not so well known.
        I always look forward to your photo posts, they are all stunning really, and you have a penchant for dilapidated barns like me too! 🙂

  2. Well, Sandy, judging from this set of photos, I do believe you’ve figured out your camera! (And particular thanks for the railroad photos – always favorites of mine.) Well done!

  3. Love your pics. How about 40,000 words worth times two…i.e. travel south and do the awesome South Island due justice 🙂

    • Thanks Marlene, I like the North Island because I can drive there for free. Plenty of great photographers taking awesome photos of the South Island. It’s too expensive to get to

  4. Hi Sandy, I was once advised in relation to taking good and stunning photos, stand in front of great and stunning things. You certainly have plenty of opportunities there in NZ.
