A rosy day

Good morning from a grey, foggy morning.

Well yesterday was an interesting day.  My family got the chance to meet the All Black legend Jonah Lomu and his wife and listen to them both talk.  An amazing experience.

He is a sick man but is dedicated to his wife and two sons.  We were privileged to be able to shake hands with him and talk with him afterwards.  No photos of me with him, I was behind the lens of course.

While walking on the way home (we only live a few minutes walk away) I sent my family ahead as I spotted some gorgeous roses.  My camera was in my hand anyway, as it always is when I have it on me.  I just couldn’t help myself.  I am always looking around me anyway, whether I have my camera on me or not.  My children just left me to it.

So here are some gorgeous roses I came across.

Then, last night during the rugby test my daughter happened to be walking past a window and noticed the bright moon and remarked on it, saying that it would be impossible to take photos of.  Well challenge accepted.

I grabbed my camera and raced outside.  The first photos were shaky so I found a spot to rest my arms on and took these two photos.  I haven’t edited them at all.  She liked the affect of the clouds just covering the moon for a spooky affect.

Cheers and have a nice day,

Raewyn
