I was trained in film photography. When digital came about, I wasn't on board and stuck with film.
It's only been in the last few years that I've moved fully into digital, but there are still alot of things I don't know. Like advanced PhotoShop.

Now that Nursing is off the cards, I tried my luck applying in a Digital Photography program. I hadn't heard anything and I applied last month. The program fills up quick and I was certain I'd missed out because the first intake begins on the 4th of Feb. I called yesterday and the school confirmed my place in 2 intakes this year.

It's always ever been about Art.
I was only going into Nursing so I knew how to tend to my sick husband at his worst times. Although I don't appreciate his early departure, I do appreciate that he too always knew it was all about Art.

Now I need to sell an ovary for the Canon EOS 6D (or the Nikon D4).

Still not learning LightWave.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
