On my way home I stopped for the night at a great AirBnB apartment in Nelson, and it rained pretty much the entire way from when I took the photos of the Kea at Arthurs Pass until I got to Nelson.
I had chosen this apartment as it’s on a hill directly above Nelson port and the photos of the view looked amazing… But when I got up the next morning I actually LOL’d at the view!
It amused me that a month ago, on my first morning in Kenepuru Sound I woke to a view of fog filling the sounds… And I then proceeded to shoot some of the best photos of the entire trip… So I wasn’t disappointed at a lack of the panoramic view, far from it… But I just hoped the fog would lift enough to see something, before check out time…
▶ birds play rhythm with swing!
▶ new documentary about West German studio legend Conny Plank to be released this year
▶ I have a feeling this kind of news will become common in future: Facebook kills bots after they create their own language… Makes me think of the sample (from the Outer Limits episode “Demon with a Glass Hand”) in this Cabaret Voltaire song
▶ I tend to keep an eye on sites that offer remix competitions, partly as a chance to hear stems from artists I like… So I reccomend checking out this remix competition for Ladi 6 track Royal Blue – the EP mix is here if the embed doesn’t work
