Puhoi

We were travelling North today and detoured to the Puhoi general store, where we saw two fairly expensive convertables, a very small library and a bridge.

All shot with Nikon d800, Nikkor 50 mm @ f 1.8, Apeture priority, and colours enhanced velvia filter in Darktable.

Graves

North Dunedin Cemetery.

The Victorians were good at remembering we will all be dead. In this spring, the gravestones are hidden by the greenery: in winter the place is bleak.

Both photos taken today: different lenses, different places. One is is a cemetery, one near a shearing shed.
