Whanganui Vintage Weekend 2019

Whanganui celebrates its vintage values every year in January. The 2019 event was bigger and better than ever.

Boxing Clever

Who’d of thought there were so many different letterboxes out there. Tailors first AudioVisual!!

Sometimes we die revisited

Went back to Karori Cemetery and reshot the majority of my images enabling a remake with the full version of Van Morrison’s Sometimes we cry

 

I’ll show you something that will make you change your mind

It’s easy to take a lot of photos in London. Many cliches and iconic sights to capture. Difficult to do something different. I hope this audiovisual slide show changes your mind a little bit

 

Virginia Lake

Virginia Lake is a delightful lake in Whanganui, New Zealand with swans, ducks, shags, geese, pukeko and many other water birds. I was fortunate to capture the progress of an Australian Coot pair raising their chicks. The chicks were not so fortunate.

 

 

Streets of Arklow

I visited the town of Arklow in County Wicklow, Ireland recently to understand the inspiration for Van Morrison’s haunting song from his magnificent Veedon Fleece album. Over 40 years later it is easy to see the origins of his song but the presence of cars from tourists and commuters diminishes the ambience.

Down Brunswick Road

The song is about Brunswick Road in Sydney, Australia but the images are all from Brunswick Road, Whanganui, New Zealand

Sometimes We Die

Van Morrison’s “Sometimes we cry” set to images from the Karori Cemetery, Wellington, New Zealand.
