297 | 365 Buying Clothes

My wardrobe. There are clothes that hang around within its depths that that may well predate Noah, but certainly are old enough to have lost whatever distant connection to fashion they may have had.   I am about to be burdened again with the chore of buying new clothes (it’s a male thing).   Burdened … More 297 | 365 Buying Clothes

294 |365 Stop the car

I love how my team put up with my somewhat eccentric 365 photo project habits. Driving into Wellington after a fleeting trip to Christchurch and Wendy graciously stops the car so that I can get my photo of the day.   I couldn’t miss it. I mean how often do you get to Wellington with … More 294 |365 Stop the car

286 |365 An hour out

In the industrialised world, using unsustainable fuels were the norm. Then they built huge power stations like this one at Huntly. After all you … More 278 |365 Energy

We have family night (meeting) on Sunday nights. As you can see from the photo the kids are 100% engaged the whole time and really enjoy the interaction and discussion that we have.

275 |365 – Confidence

Took J to his first school disco. He was eally shy and he reminded me of me. It was really interesting to watch him slowly build in confidence over the course of the night. I was thinking about how confidence often comes from experience. The more you do something, the more you push into areas … More 275 |365 – Confidence

273 |365 Banana’s

Sometimes we completely forget that we import simple things like banana’s. We purchase them with very little thought to the origin or the people who produce them. We say we care about things like poverty or the environment, but its mainly lip service. Actually purchasing only products that make a difference for the causes we … More 273 |365 Banana’s
