North Westerlies

Well this was a hard day, we had a North Westerly. In the South Island this means heavy head, heavy air. I went out in pain, was really disappointed with the ground glass screen.

As much as Edward Western must have been excited by the screen, in his diaries.

It was hard to see in my new Toyo view. The scanning back didn’t like its connection to my Laptop.

I was wondering what a Colonial photographer would have made of the view.

Got home feeling as if the trip was a waste. Then I took a look and thought it was not half bad, with all those scanner patterns in the water. I had in mind Wynn Bullocks water images from the 1940′, so was not sure even if it would work in colour.

The other picture was a surprise too, even with the soft background.
