Check me out posting only one week of photos and actually ON Sunday.

While i'm unsure what planets aligned this week, I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth and definitely feel like I turned a corner. 

It started with the ceremonial waving of the white flat in the battle that always rages between me and Scott whenever he returns from deployment. Much like a Khadashian wedding it's fierce, it's ugly and it usually lasts around a week. We realized the gig was up when, after a particularly nasty round the night before, we both confessed to having planned surprise dinners that had been destroyed by aforementioned WWIII...I feel we need to haul us both off to a dark corner & have a very stern word about how to be an adult. 

Monday reinforced the reason I am Apple's target market, and numero uno customer. Around 10:35am I received my spanking new iPhone 4 and around 12:35pm was up and running with ALL my old pictures, videos, messages & emails...thank you iCloud & the team at Apple from one ecstatically grateful consumer customer.

Every Friday we try to get out and see a part of the city, a sort of "family-evening" if you will. Last Friday we headed to Wynyard Wharf which happened to be doubling as the base for the Rally of New Zealand cars. We've been before but I'm always impressed by what a gem of a place it is for families. Live music, playgrounds, open spaces for the terrorists tots - it's a match made in heaven. We arrived around 4:30pm to catch the last of the sunshine at the playground before heading indoors for dinner (and a cheeky vino) at the Auckland Fish Market. Such a great way to round out a busy week. 

Photographically speaking this week felt like MUCH less of a chore than the previous few. A personal goal I had coming in to this challenge was to learn to pay more attention to my surroundings. I really admire photographers who are able to take that which is mundane and turn it in to art. While I've still got mountains to climb, I do feel that this week at least, I managed a few steps in the right direction.

I hope you've had a great week - wherever you are in the world! 

If you happen to be in Auckland and are scratching your head for things to do, check out the North Wharf (including Wynyard Wharf) and the Auckland Fish Market - both well worth a look see.

    1. Hey Jodie - thank you so much for the lovely comment! Some weeks I'm just stoked with what you manage to capture. Other weeks I just want to download someone elses life, slap my name all over them and say look how great I am...if only I was that unethical :P Agree about getting them online, yesh - shouldn't there be an app for this by now?
