Well, here's a post that's been a bit of a roller-coaster. Initially when I processed the images I was going to post them, then I reflected for a day and decided I wasn't so keen on them and now here I am a few days later typing a post. So why?, well because the images have grown on me again. I'm sure many of you have experienced this phenomenon whereby the way you feel about images can change in a relatively small space of time, sometimes almost hourly......This wasn't really supposed to be a photographic opportunity, it was in fact quite a personal experience but it's always good to document these events. Ultimately I guess this is another experience to add to the list of things we've done in New Zealand that I genuinely doubt would have taken place in the UK.

In my bag for this was the following:-
50mm Jupiter 3 f/1.5 - Still can't leave this as home
50mm Voigtlander Nokton f/1.1 - Wanted to get some images wide open in the available light.
75mm Voigtlander Heliar f/1.8 - Always with me....
50mm Canon f/1.4 LTM
The 50mm Canon f/1.4 is a new acquisition, a lens referred to by some as the Japanese Summilux which I was keen to try out.
