30 in 30 - Chopper - #19

I know - I am now quote a few days behind. I am in New Zealand you see. Fly fishing. I am shooting though but will have to try to make up some of the videos on my return to OZ. However - in the meantime I give you a hastily constructed edit of an amazing way to get to a fishing spot. Enjoy.

I know it may seem like a slight repetition of the earlier clouds video - but I like to think of it as a further exploration of a theme...I did set out to try to capture the sunset around this place which can, at times, be quite stunning. The Mist, another meteorological phenomenon that can also be quote stunning around these parts, had other ideas and literally swallowed up the sunset. Enjoy.

COWS DO HOLLYWOOD 2 - 30 in 30 #17

Hey - so I may or may not have run out of ideas. Or it may or may not be the weekend and I feel like packing down. Or it could be that I kind of think these are kind of funny/peculiar. Or something. Meet Cow Pacino...

BRIDGE - 30 in 30 #16

Over half way... Every so often the local hall plays host to a bridge day. They come from far and wide to partake in a day of cards, the odd glass of wine and of course a curried egg sandwich. It's a great little day. And I felt it was only fitting to capture a slice of it. Enjoy.

RACES - 30 in 30 #15

So - hot on the heels of #14 comes #15 - see I am making up time here people. The Bong Bong races are an institution around these here parts. They used to be a wild, debauched affair until they became too wild and debauched and were shut down for a number of years. Now they are a far more salubrious occasion, only slightly wild and debauched. The thing is - there's nothing like a country picnic race meeting. Really there isn't. It's good fun. And the people watching is second to none. Trust me - what I didn't include for fear of offence and flauting many international laws...goodness me, the things people are allowed to leave the house in these days! Anyway - here is a little snapshot of the day. Enjoy.

COWS DO HOLLYWOOD - 30 in 30 #14

OK - so here's the thing... I know I haven't posted for a few days but there are extenuating circumstances. Firstly, we had the Bong Bong Picnic races on Wednesday. Enough said. And yesterday we had a blackout. It doesn't mean I haven't been shooting each day though and I will try my best to get another two videos out today to catch up if I can. In fact I'm heading off to shoot today's as soon as I hit publish.

Now, I know what you're thinking - cows just eat grass and produce methane. How wrong you are. They are actually quite talented and avid actors. The proof is contained below.

DEUCE - 30 in 30 #13

Lucky number 13. Speaking of lucky, I'm lucky enough to play Monday night tennis down at the local tennis club with the motliest crew since... Motley Crüe... The crowd consists of those who aren't currently playing on court. I for one feel this is a great injustice to the level of sporting prowess on display. As such - I have decided to give the Monday night tennis crew the crowd they rightly deserve. Enjoy.
