But wow, a synth with total recall!

Steam powered

While down South I visited this new vehicle museum in Geraldine – its not open to public yet…
Super keen to record the steam whistles (& steam powered bell!) on these beasts!
Also planning to capture an IR in there – massive space!

West Coast road trip

Day 1, up early to catch the ferry South… weather has turned Southerly & once we get out into Cook Strait, the ferry is making huge booms every 4-5 seconds as we drop off a wave!! Rolling!

Then a four hour drive… Blenheim & Wairau valley very flooded!!

Stopped at great junk store in Murchison and bought some metal percussion & a big bowable spring, for $21 total!

Arrived to Cape Foulwind Air BnB in time to have a fly… My car & air BnB are on rhs of frame:

My primary mission for this trip was to visit & shoot Motukiekie Beach, which I had never heard of before but saw some stunning photos when researching…

8.50am Monday morning
After driving for an hour in the dark & climbing down a sketchy track, based purely on blog hearsay… ‘across the road from the blue bach’ – shot 4 rolls of film & stayed until the incoming tide chased me out.

As close to a self as I get:

Laster in the day I went up to Denniston, hoping to 4WD up to Mt Rochfort but seems mining has closed the access route 🙁

Shot this on the way back – looking to Westport, from Denniston

Zooming in on the DSLR shot, the large scale land works near Fairdown is very impressive!! I presume for drainage…

▶ this made me LOL…
I’m no conspiracist, but the ‘joke’ was perfectly set up!



▶ Sounds existential because it is: What is a stream, anyway?



▶ Wow I never knew how monopolistic Audible is!



▶ classic social media post! All headline and no substance….
You see the above and think wow, surely they don’t do that every day!
And you would be correct. They did it once!
“Published for “Greenery Day” on May 4, 2016, the special edition dedicated to environmental news was printed on 100% biodegradable paper with plant-based ink, and embedded with seeds that, when planted, would grow into flowers to attract butterflies and other pollinators, or herbs to eat…. The plantable newspaper initiative reached 4.6 million people, and generated over $700,000 for the publisher, as well as over 80 million yen worth of press that went far beyond newspapers alone…”
