Sitting at the Christchurch airport waiting for an outbound flight to Auckland. From there it’s a straight shot home and I’ve got 3 days to turn it all around and head to Jamaica for the holidays. What a trip this has been. Very relaxing, and a chance to shoot more landscapes and seascapes than I’ve ever done. I’m fascinated by the edges of things, places where land meets sky, sky meets water…and New Zealand has it’s share of dramatic coastlines. So if there’s a theme threading through my postcards it’s a reflection of this 3-week pursuit of the edges of things at the edges of day. Lots of early mornings and shooting late.
Will be nice to be home but home has started feeling less like home than ever as I begin to get things ready for the coming year on the road. I’ll get home, pick Jessie up from the mechanic’s, and have three days to continue the bits and pieces of the prep, as well as clean the gear and charge the batteries. Jamaica is a chance to see my parents for my birthday and Christmas, as well as to spend a week in the water learning about underwater photography and working the bugs out of the wierdness of shooting with a water housing.
I trust you have an amazing holiday. I’ll check in between now and then, but while I have a moment I want to thank you, on behalf of myself and the whole team at Craft & Vision, for your friendship and support this year. May the holidays and the coming year bring you peace, beauty, and time with the ones you love. However you celebrate, I wish you the very best.
