Coastal Refurb…

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERA

Hasn’t been a photo on here for a while so I thought I would share this one which made the Flickr “explore” so I’m quite happy for that.

So this small section of coastline has had a little bit of a refurbish and well I’m very shocked to be honest. Basically they have put down a lovely smooth tarmac, and it might be hard to see but they have run long concrete ledge curbs all the way along the back wall.

To sum this up briefly this is without a doubt going to become a “hot spot” for skateboarding and rollerblading more so, these ledges and perfect 🙂 On the flip side though is the initial interaction and reaction from the general public, it only takes a few idiots to cause a stir and the next thing you know it’s front page news !

Hopefully this could become a good, respectful place for skating ideally in the evenings, as you can see nobody is around…

Now I’m off to find some blades and dig out the skate wax, see if I have those grinding skills ?

Happy New Year !

Here is a personal fave that I took a week or so ago. This is a four image merge into HDR which has ended up looking some ND filter due to the soft wave overlaps. I’ve submitted it into the Flickr ‘your best shot 2015’ pool and it’s proven to be very popular, so I hope you all like it also.

Back to college next week and I’ve just been sorting out my LV08 chassis assignment this evening. Hopefully I can get that marked off then it will be more workshop related tasks in the new year which I can share on the blog.

2015 for the college blog has been pretty steady, nearly 200 genuine followers and regular commenters must mean I’m doing something right. It’s clear the site has moved over into more of a photo hobbyist gallery, but since college will finish around June 2016 I will probably carry this on as a photography blog primarily.

I would like to note a few of my favorite blogs this year:

Jazz You Too  This has been a great source for alternative listening and generally chilled out tracks.

Ray Laskowitz The Storyteller, a great variety of photos from Ray, many thanks.

Drakes Doodles This site is really interesting, simple doodles of art it’s really worth following !

Playing With My First DSLR Camera Well known blog for macro and close up photography, great for ideas yet I just need to get a better close up lens now !

Colline’s Blog I’ve really enjoyed this blog about the perspectives of teaching, with it’s challenges and rewards it’s been great to follow this year.

Tim Scribbles A car show blog from the US that I enjoy very much.

THE MAD MOVIE RANTER Useful site for knowing what films to check out and the ones to avoid. It’s really that simple !

Forgotten NZ Abandoned places in New Zealand and around the world, I’ve been following this site since I started my own blog and it’s really cool.

Marc Aerophoto Marc will always be joking to me about something on my blog, but you just cannot beat taking photos from the sky ! Marc has been helpful with what to get for my camera so a special thanks to him !

There are many more blogs I can think to include but I need to carry on with my assignment, and why are people doing fireworks already it’s only 21:00PM !

Kenny.
