Daily photo challenge - Week 27 is complete

Another week, another 8 pics.
(Yup - I'm cheating and posting an extra pic for July 5)

It was an action packed week at home and at work
and thankfully work provided me with 
a rather unique photo for my blog
(see July 2).

I also took the time to play with white balance and ISO a bit more
- knowledge is a wonderful thing!!!

(my goodness these guys are ugly!)

(I love playing with ISO levels!)

5.7.12 - Golden light

This is the Mt Eden Pacific Islanders Presbyterian Church. 
It's a building that has fascinated me for awhile now 
so I just had to stop and take some pics.
I couldn't decide on which is my I'm cheating and posting two.

5.7.12 - Locked

4.7.12 - Horsey ride before bedtime

The view from my office window 
as a storm was brewing over Auckland

2.7.12 - On the job

I'm usually office bound, but today I got to head out and cover some breaking news!
I loved it!
My photos were used on 
and on the front page of the Central Leader.

  1. Love the golden light one - what a great building...

    1. Thanks - it sure is an awesome building. Shame the gates were locked and I couldn't get any closer.

  2. I think i already told you I really really like the orchid shot, also really like the golden light shot - good spotting and good timing :)

    1. Thanks! I got lucky on the timing for the light for both those pics. Whew!

  3. Awesome work :) The golden light is fantastic, love the orchid shot as well! Great catch on the backyard visitor too :)

    1. Cheers! I have the dog to thank for alerting me to the backyard visitor. The dog was bouncing all over the backyard with excitement.

  4. Hey Mel luck has nothing to do with it you're just that good :) loved the pictures!!

    1. Awwwww - thanks! You're too kind.
