Lost Past

Continuing my explorations with Proshow Producer, I reprocessed some pictures of the Provincial Council buildings that I took back in 2009 for the Christchurch City Council's web project. It was interesting revisiting processing from four years ago - my tastes, techniques and tools have all changed in that time and I made much better use of the Nikon D80 RAW files than I did originally. The resulting video is a sort of requiem to some beautiful buildings that are sadly now badly damaged or destroyed.

An updated HD video from that included in the original post.

A selection of pictures from a weekend in Akaroa including a visit to the Giant's House (6min video).

Akaroa rays

Just back from a long weekend in stunning Akaroa with my beautiful wife. Or was that a beautiful weekend with my stunning wife? Darned if I know. Anyway the weather was great and as we sat in our room on Sunday night I saw the setting sun just appearing under the clouds.
The rays only lingered for a few minutes but fortunately we were only about 100m from the quay so a quick sprint to the foreshore got me there for a few quickly composed frames. A nice ending to a nice weekend.
