Last weekend I spent two nights in Invercargill which, for those who don't know their New Zealand geography, is at the southern end of the South Island. I was there as part of a selection panel for a photographic exhibition, and was kindly hosted by a member of the group which organised the selection weekend. She has a nice room at the top of her house, which is where I slept. The window faces east and after a hectic day selecting images on Saturday it was nice to have a little sleep in on Sunday. I woke before the sun was fully on the window and dozed, feeling lazy for a while, until the morning couldn't be ignored any longer. The room has a beautiful wooden panelled ceiling, which glowed in the light. We decided to go out for breakfast to a terrific cafe called The Batch Cafe, at 173 Spey Street, Invercargill. Google The Batch Cafe. They've got a string of awards to their credit. We really enjoyed it, and next time I'm in Invercargill I know where I'll be going for breakfast. How about Vanilla French Toast with crispy bacon, maple syrup and crumbed roasted Central Otago peaches, with a couple of excellent coffees? Hard to beat anywhere I'd say.
Each week I'll publish a new image as part of a joint Project 52, with my friend in the USA. We both make an image every week, and send them to each other. We are now in the 2nd year of this project. We find it challenging, stimulating and fun. Life should be fun.
