Fish and Chips

Friday night we went to Cornwall Park for some fish and chips.  Good ol’ food I say.

When I go overseas, I miss two things 1. Pies and 2. Fish and chips.

Syrus Rea

Looks like this will be a blog for everything “not PoppyMoss” – Exciting!! A few rock star Photographers at this workshop in Wellington, really drilled the importance of personal work. And it just made me go WOW thats so true – Personal Work is my goal. ”Goals love momentum” – Si Moore

“A life lived for art is a life not wasted” – Macklemore (I had to google who came up with this saying. Syrus posted this on one of my Instigram photos and I was sold.  It’s my most favourite saying. Ever).

For this shoot- I played around with harsh bright light, patchy light, shadows… in Lightroom I turned up the contrast, played with grain, went black and white.

Below are a few shots of him.  He is a talented actor with a talent for modelling. Thank you mucho friend!

Mexico Teaser

I have a pretty creative bunch of friends. One of them is the Miss Kimmi – aka K-dot. She is super talented and she put together this snippet of our holiday together. Love it so much!

Snippet of Cuba

Here is a snippet of Cuba,  I got into a nasty habit of not organising my photo files, so trying to go through them to get some kind of order for the blog was a mish.  So heres a mish mash of the time we spent there. We stayed in Havana Vieja for the majority of our trip and jumped on a day tour to Vinales. It was awesome being in a big group. I could sneak off and talk to strangers and just have a good old chin-wag and I even got a few portraits of my new friends. It was a nice 6 days of no technology i.e internet, emails, facebook and instagram. But I must say – once we flew back to Mexico it was nice to have those creature comforts – not having to put toilet paper in the bin next to the toilet, not having to pay someone to give you toilet paper, having the ability to get info on the outside world.

Amigos of Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is one amazing place.  We hired some golf carts and hung out with some kids and this ol’ timer by the name of Raphael.

Diving in Isla

Caleb and I booked a trip with Squalo Adventures.  Stephanie (our master diver) is one cool chick.  She was born in the UK and has been living on Isla Mujeres for the last 7 years.  She took us to two dive sites and we got to see some pretty stunning reefs, fish and statues.  The visibility was just amazing, I felt like I was flying!

Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is a 20 minute ferry ride from Puerto Juarez in Cancun.  It is a tiny little island with a relaxed atmosphere.  We are staying at Playa la Media which is a basic resort type hotel – but they have an awesome pool.  Caleb and I stayed here the last time we were on the island (except we stayed in the ‘rustic’ rooms which are basically a cleaners cupboard with a bed). If you were wondering – yes those are Scorpions.  They tasted devine.

We hired some golf carts and zoomed around seeing sites and stopped in at Casa de los Suenos where we met the lovely Gonzalez.  He has such an amazing story he was a body guard for two Mexican presidents.  He met the Pope, Michael Jackson (after he said Michael Jackson I was gobsmacked and now I cant remember who else he said).

Playa del Carmen

The beach is a big favorite of mine.  I don’t mind the sand (I make this point because Caleb HATES the sand).  The beach chair service makes up for it – buckets of corona’s, fresh guacamole Mmmm.

Team Nueve Zealanda

Everyone arrived in Playa del Carmen with out getting lost (sort of…).  We are staying in a really nice 3 story apartment that has a rooftop bbq area and spa.  Well done to Caleb who organised our accommodation.  It is currently “hurricane season” in Mexico, so its not super crazy busy like the last time we were here.  It’s very very hot, and the humidity is at 170%, phew its hot!  Cant complain though – much rather this weather than the cold weather at home right now. It is also Anges birthday while we are here – so heres a week long celebration!

Team Nueva Zealanda – (in order: Caleb, Katy (me), Kimmi, Sidney, Ange, Tabitha and Sanchez (the dog))
