Knees and thighs are fine, I could do with more sleep though!

It was a fun day, despite the occasional period of light drizzle and the gentle breeze. It's always fun to meet new people and discuss the finer details of "real photography".

I look forward to the next GTG when we can do the fun things again: eating sand, playing follow-the-leader in dead-ends, passing children over rivers, the blurry bird photos, not to mention, checking out the bods in the kitchen.



I couldn't agree more especially about the sleep. Like a certain article of equipment I had on the day, I took a little while to get going yesturday. It was brilliant meeting you all. It was a real laugh. I'm looking forward to the next discussion on the Art of Real Photography :))

Thanks to that Aussie chick ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/20000-24999/24486/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_832804.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/20000-24999/24486/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_832804.jpg', '/') + 1) .

But for some it was all a little too much ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/20000-24999/24486/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_832805.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/20000-24999/24486/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_832805.jpg', '/') + 1) .

Great also to meet Rina's daughter too & to see that she really isn't just a blur.

lol yes I have been to Auckland many times. I guess I just never paid attention to the sun while I was there. Making note to take a closer look next time I am there.

Have you ever been to Auckland, that's the real sun - it's like that. We have a very friendly sun up this way.

It is too bad you guys were not all in Wellington yesterday, You wouldn't have needed to add the little sunny face to your photo, It was real nice down here. The weather you guys had looks about the same as When we were showing Judi the Wellington Bays last week. Glad to hear everyone had a good time and that no one got kicked, whipped or suffered any bites. lol way to behave Judi....

Sweet. Now it's perfect for a challenge. You forgot to use the chin reduction tool though. Might get dinged a few points for that.

I'm also happy to say that after having Judi in my car for most of the day I can't find a single bruise - maybe her bark is worse than her bite after all?!

It really was! Karekare was a tiny bit of a let down, but the fab company made up for it in spades :)

It was a great day. Wonderful to catch up with everyone. Loads of egregious behaviour toward the end of dinner, with Gerry being renamed "Big Bad Wolf". I shall let Judi, Gerry and Alex elaborate further...

Oh yuup...the Big Bad Wolf, then there were the mermaids and the chefs!!! But what about the dead ends we stumbled upon...hmmm!!! I will let the others continue the story!

The weather was definately turned on down here in Wellington today. It is starting to cool a bit now but has been one of those Can't Beat Wellington on A Good Day type of days.
