The client wanted to give visitors a more serene appreciation of the Buddha” – the plants are lavender, so the scent must be amazing on a summers day…

IR 35mm

Just ordered infrared filters for my Lee Seven Five set to use with my Fuji TX2/XPAN2, and for my Lee 100mm set to use with my Canon 1V… Can’t wait to try it out! Hurry up FedEx!


Have you ever tasted Elderflower cordial? I hadn’t until very recently but really love the subtle flavour, especially with mint, limes & vodka… Since Spring is just starting in NZ I’ve been busy getting my garden ready, prepping soil and getting seedlings started… So I ordered a couple of elderberry plants and got them in the ground today!

Apparently the first season they do produce flowers & berries, but its not until the second season they really get going… fingers crossed! Also planted a goosebury bush, a tamarillo plant, a lemon bush and got mesclun & fractal brocolli in too… Next is radish, strawberries & tomatoes
