Rainy Sunday

Sunday we explored. Overcast, raindrops & drizzly.
Hey bloggers…Its been forever since I did a personal post on here – or even posted much at all. I’ve considered getting back in to blogging and on some days, closing this site completely. But I love what is on here too much – and I’d feel sad completely leaving!
A lot has changed since I was last really on here. So I’m starting fresh! I want it to be more open & treated as a diary – rather than just a place to share art & crafts (with nothing much about me).
So for starters…my lovely readers…let me introduce you to Nick. He’s a brilliant photographer, dad (2 sweet little boys that I get to be the ‘cool mumma’ around) and is super hipster, creative, clever…the list really does go on. You can check out his photography here.
He’s the major reason I’m back on here blogging. On Sunday we explored and I finally felt the urge to get behind my camera again. I LOVE black & white images so much…so maybe that is what it will mainly be about.

We’ve been through a heck of a lot together since we met… There are things I want to share in time.
But for now…heres us!

West Coast, New Zealand

Part two of my mini South Island road trip:
We then drove further down the coast stopping in a few small towns and eventually ending up in Hokitika. The drive down the West Coast is full of beautiful native New Zealand flax bushes, Nikau Palms & Ferns and crazy wild coastlines.
I loooove this photo above of the seagulls – the third bird from the left is so gansgter! haha!

The locals in Hokitika are the absolute coolest. You’ll never find more chilled out, cruisey kiwi’s! If you visit Hokitika, get a pizza from Fat Pipi’s Pizza and take it down to the beach at Sunset Point. Here, you can watch the sun go down & the crazy waves crashing on the beach.
A short drive away is the glow worm dell – which is sooo cool! xobec



Little white flower

I’m not sure what kind of bush this is but it was growing out in the Native New Zealand bush with a tui bird singing his tune nearby.
Today I’m heading to the library to gather new inspiration for a series of art I’d like to try. Sometimes being surrounded by books is just what I need. Have a beaut week friends!xobec


New Zealand Photography: Sunrise & silhouettes.

So just to have you all feeling a bit jealous of where I grew up, I took some sunset photos of  what can be seen almost every morning from the front lawn. I have a whole folder of sunrise images from my childhood, always different and totally spectacular! I hope this makes you all want to visit NZ! :D xo Bec
