Venice, Italy - September 1977.
In the first shot, you can see the Bosphorus suspension bridge far in the distance.
The second shows fisherman preparing takeaway fish for people to enjoy on the dock. As fresh as you could possibly get!
Snapshots - Turkey & Greece, 1977.
A couple of slides I have recently digitized from my parents travels during the 70’s. I believe these were taken with the Kodak Instamatic that I have previously featured pictures of, which I still own and it still functions perfectly.
The first shows Istanbul harbor, looking towards New Town. The second is a beach in Kavala, Greece.
More to come soon!
Bowen Island - British Columbia, Canada
A Touch of Wellington
Meerkat - Auckland Zoo, Auckland - New Zealand
I love Auckland Zoo.
With a focus on education and conservation, Auckland Zoo is an ever changing landscape of exotic and native species. The Meerkat enclosure has long been in existence, ever since I was a child exploring the tunnels and perspex domes that allow a more up close and personal view of their habitat.
This shot didn’t quite come out as clear as I wanted. But I like the composition. It was a very very hot day and I should have picked up a polarizer for my 50mm lens, but alas I had to make do.
Mexico - Ponsonby, Auckland - New Zealand
I took this shot a wee while ago after having lunch and a coffee with one of my dear friends. Ever since I first moved in to the Ponsonby area, I have loved walking down the street on a hot summers day. It’s a vibrant place, awash with many cultures, sub & counter ( for those sociologically inclined), with something for everyone’s taste.
There is always some new place to check out at least, with Mexico being part of a new tide of high quality Mexican & Latin American eateries that have been coming to the area in recent months.
