Beach day

Its final countdown… to presentation date.  I needed to do one final shoot to try a couple of different things and get some more material to work with, so I roped Ruth and Ariél into coming out to Piha with me; Ruth as my assistant, and Ariél because I thought she’d like to see a bit of something outside the city.  Here are some of the things we saw and did…

And here’s a taste of what I shot for my work…  Imagine that they are presented horizontally next to each other, as a kind of mirror image.

Getting to this location involved some heavy-duty climbing over weed-slippery rocks and past waves threatening to wipe us out if we made a wrong move. Ariél hasn’t yet sorted out her rock climbing expertise (it lies in other areas) so she stayed behind while Ruth and I risked our lives in the name of art.  We shall see how much of a success it was once I get my film back from the lab.

    SOrry, I thought about telling you, but then I didn’t… I did feel like I was risking my life when I was hanging off those slimy rocks.
    I’m defintely keen to go back. All the beaches along there are great for exploring.
