This blog was started for the purpose of Sue and me keeping in touch with friends and family whilst on a seven week trip to New Zealand in 2008. The blog worked. It still does. We took over 1200 photos on the trip, and we produced a 120 image slideshow for SWOG.
Today, Sue remembered that we have no photo album for the trip, and declared that she would embark on a Photobox project - creation of said album. A book combining some of the best pictures with some notes from our blog. Two volumes, perhaps?
I thought we might have sorted and re-named the photos, but no such luck. That needs to be done before Sue can start work on the book. The images from our various cameras have been downloaded but need to be renamed and put in order before Sue can start work. So once I've finished Volume II of the HRP 2004 book that's currently being produced, I'll spend a good few hours going through the NZ images, sorting them, deleting a few, and re-naming the rest. A pleasant task, so long as frequent breaks are taken.
So with nothing much more happening at lockdown in Timperley than boring bike rides and watching the garden grow, readers can expect a few items from New Zealand.
Today's picture was taken during a cruise on Milford Sound on 5 February 2008. Apparently there's often water cascading from the steep sides of the sound, but they were suffering from a drought when we were there....
