It’s oh-so-quiet. So quiet, that I might as well post OT. I am very grateful to Mr A’s silence (apart from the little selfie love we were just given courtesy of his Berlin Station make-up artist, who has posted a lovely pic on her FB page. It appears that Mr A likes to put his arms around
the world his make-up ladies…).
Thanks and lots of love to the very so kind Richard Armitage! Such a pleasure working with you for the last six… https://t.co/VZXiQhdOfN

Thanks to the lack of news, I have been able to do what I should have been doing long ago. I have finalised my NZ photo book. Yes, 13 months after the event, the “Complete New Zealand” is finally designed and in the can. Or on paper. Currently being printed for myself and possibly already on its way to me.
What finally did it, was the impending visit of my ETC who is due
to arrive here tomorrow evening. Yes, that means the final product will not be available for her to peruse. But I cleverly also had a pdf version of the photo book made, so we can look at that – and reminisce about the good old times of travelling NZ together.
For those of you who had been following my
abandoned series of NZ throwback posts on Twitter and who kindly liked my images, you might be interested in the full works. I have made it publicly viewable on blurb.com where you can browse through it. Heck, you can even buy it. (Don’t worry, I don’t expect any sales at *that* price – on-demand photo books are pricey luxury items. The pdf, however, is a steal.) Just click on the image below, and you will be taken to my “storefront” on blurb, where you can click “preview” and see the whole book.
I haven’t scrimped on my images – they are all there, the whole loot of edited photos. So much so that some sights get the full treatment of 6 images from different angles. I just couldn’t bear to leave pictures out. Hobbiton gets a whole long section (6 pages with 20 pictures in total), as does the search for Edoras. Pelorus River is in there, and some other bits such as Lake Tekapo and Lake Wanaka with Glendhu Bay that feature some Hobbit/LotR sights in the background. People are at a minimum (that’s how I roll in my photography – in fact, my friends and family usually complain that I never have people in my images…), landscape rules. I have even gone the whole hog and designed a blurb for the dust jacket 😂. No doubt, the pretentiousness will have my friends in tears of laughter when they see it.
Anyway, just thought I’d while away the time with it. Have a look and let me know if you liked it 😊
I wonder what Mr A will while away his time with after next Monday?
