A first look at my movie The Pā Boys with the release of this movie trailer/music video…Enjoy (-:
Was really lucky this week. The final shots for the movie The Pā Boys involved filming a Kaahu, a beautiful bird that you don’t get much chance of seeing up close. Found that out as we chased several around the Bay of Plenty and East Coast landscape without much luck. They are common (as opposed to many of our bird life) so no danger of becoming endangered. In fact they are one of the birds that thrived after all those mice, rats and other rodents colonised our country (-:
Have made several trips over the hill to Waiarapa lately. The area is famous for it’s wine but also it’s wild coast, fishing, surf, seafood, camping and seals. This white sea elephant (female) was as tucked away as she could get. She was enormous.
And the fur seals never let you get too close, theres an invisible line that I was just about to cross.
The hills and light is amazing here. We had to walk the last part because the road had washed out in the last mega-storm and then collapsed in the earthquakes. Yeah it’s been all action here in Aoteroa.
Ngawi is the fishing town. The beach is so wild they need tractors, trucks to launch the boats.
I’m guessing no one reads the signs here (-:
Just trying the #pressgram app which is Instagram without corporate Facebook owning or using your material (-;

I didn’t have many opportunities to take photos on the shoot. Mainly because I didn’t have time (or the brain) but also my SLR was flat and I had no chance of charging it, um, because I didn’t have a charger. Go figure.
Heading into the mountains.
