This photo was taken in August 2016 in Mostar, a town in Southern Bosnia and Herzegovina. The bridge is called Stari Most (Old Bridge), and is considered an exemplary piece of Islamic architecture dating back to the 16th century.

This photo was taken in Barcelona, in the old town of El Born. I love the old crumbling buildings and apartments and was particularly taken by this one which had an impressive collection of outdoor plants. A man was standing in front of it smoking and I waited for ages for him to move so I could take a photo. He eventually finished his cigarette, opened the front door and went inside. I then realised that he lived there
While on holiday in Taranaki my father and I stayed with Haumoana White and learnt the story of the legendary Maori assault on the Pukearuhe redoubt. It is said that in the aftermath of the conflict, reverend John Whitely unwittingly arrived at the settlement and was killed, the two saddlebags of gold sovereigns he carried (to effect compulsory purchase of land) discarded over the white cliffs into the ocean below. This image is meaningful to me in it’s portrayal of Aotearoa, the land of the long white cloud.
This photo is taken of Aisha Moody and Charlotte Julian watching the sunset over the Okavango delta in Botswana. Locals or ‘polars’ guide you through the delta on small traditional boats, called mokoro, sometimes coming disconcertingly close to the local hippo population. On the right of the photo you can just see a partially submerged hippo.
This photo was taken in August during a walk along the Rakaia Gorge walkway with my Aunty, Mary Wise. I have lived within a 30 minute drive of the walkway for most of my life and never knew this gem existed until recently. Unfortunately the photo does not show the howling nor 'wester which was being funnelled up the gorge!
I took this photo with Nikon Coolpix waterproof camera on a recent trip on The Paul Gauguin cruise ship. It was taken at Bora Bora beside the Aquabike pontoon where you can ride a two person underwater scooter in about three metres of water for about 30minutes – fabulous views of coral and multi-coloured fish for non divers.
On our recent trip to the southwest of the USA we booked a night at The View Hotel in the Navajo Tribal Park in Monument Valley. This is one case where the name and marketing are spot on. We walked into our room, out onto the balcony, I whipped out my phone and took this photo.
Alison is enjoying the breathtaking view. The Grand Canyon is somewhere that makes you feel big and small at the same time.
I took this photo in August 2015 during a holiday visit to Iceland. The location is somewhere along South Eastern Iceland as we drove along the Highway 1. We drove past miles upon miles of volcanic ash mounds, waterfalls, lush greenery and glaciers. I was constantly reminding me of the awesome power of nature. Yet the rugged landscape softened me deep inside. Nestled in this heavenly abode, there can only be peace inside. Where else would I want to live?
