Travel Theme: Freedom

Majestic Tui (640x497)

Good morning from a wet and soggy Hastings.  Summer has taken a break and autumn decided to come back so it is cold as well.

I was talking to my daughter the other night as to why I always write about the weather and why I say ‘good morning’.  Hastings, Napier and Gisborne are the first cities to see the new day which is why I say  good morning from Hastings.  And the weather update?  Well it goes back to when I was overseas and when I wrote my letters back home it was a case of if you don’t know what to write about, there is always the weather.  You can always write something about how cold or warm it has been and it can fill up at least half a page or the aerogramme which is what I used to use.  I certainly didn’t want to tell my family everything!

Anyway onto Ailsa’s challenge this week which is Freedom.

Travel theme: Freedom

To start with an iconic kiwi bird the Tui among the kowhai.

Blackbird (640x482)

Then this blackbird.

Sparrow (640x545)

And lastly a couple of sparrows.

Taking off (640x482)

So why these photos.  Last week I posted a couple of photos for Steve’s Snap & Zap challenge of some parrots held captive in the aviaries at Cornwall Park.  While these photos are all of birds flying around in freedom.  I much prefer to take photos of birds in their natural habitats than in cages.

  1. Lovely photos and I’m with you on the caged v free birds. I also used to write aerogrammes and once a year my dad would send me one and he ALWAYS wrote when the Almond Bloosom was out, guess that gave him something to write about. 🙂
