Photo Day…Just One?

I can’t believe another year has gone by!  The Auckland Festival of Photography is back, and with it comes another competition with the opportunity to capture a photograph that reflects the subtleties and nuances of the Auckland region.  Last year, I had my then nine-year-old apprentice in tow for a night in the city with our cameras, people and pet-watching while enjoying the shifting light on the CBD and Sky Tower, noticing the reflections and gentle rock of super yachts, fishing boats and ferries on the waterfront, before enjoying a well-deserved dinner treat.  This year, we’ve decided to stick to what’s in our own backyard, so to speak…the beaches, the marina, national park walks and bird life – a contrast from our view of the city-scape last year, creating a theme that tells “Our Story.”  We have just 24 hours to photograph, edit and enter the competition with our one magic shot!  No pressure, truth be known, we could find that special capture every day…
