Regardless of our strength.... Regardless of our surety in ourselves... There are those days, where we look for the emergency break on our journey. . I hope her day got better. .

There is almost something physical about sadness. It blinds us to the world around us.... but pulls at the heartstrings of everyone who witnesses it. .

Ever noticed how there is no better platform for a child to view the world... than the shoulders of their parents? 1st experiences, held up high in arms tight with love. .

".. he held his bag to him a little tighter. A reflex. He had been through this neighborhood before, and still.... years later. He would hug his bag to him and turn the volume up... ... and still. He could not stop watching the grafitied buildings slide by. Could not turn his eyes away till the mess of colour became walls of concrete and glass..."

They were at it for hours... Mother and Son... laughing and joking... pulling empty hooks from the water... baiting them and casting out again... no fish caught... and they brought no bucket to put their catch in. Learned a bit from watching them that day... There are a lot more things in life that should be approached with the same attitude... they weren't fishing for the food... but fishing for fun. To spend time together... The sound of their laughter bouncing along the water... their loud laughter at their jokes when the Ship let its fog horn rip and the Pier shook "Shut up you fool! You'll scare away our dinner!" "What Ma? Scare away MacDonalds?" "The only thing eating around here is the fish!" ..... and all the while, during their back and fourth... laughter.

She bowed her head over her baby... Against the window light, a young lady. In faith and love and family... A new start, a new day, a big may be. Every decision she, a mark clearly made...

The rain tapped a rhythm against the glass... gentle and soft. Waiting. The phone rings and without looking... call declined. Waiting. The few things that she took with her... one small bag. Waiting.

Everyone needs a break at some point. Five minutes even. Where you exit the world (through what ever mental emergency exit you use)... Take a breath... then re-enter. Yes, to prevent stress and blah blah blah. But the awareness of what you want... the birth of an idea of something you desire... acknowledgment of what makes you happy... true arms thrown wide and flying creativity!! All of it is born in these five minutes... .... imagine... if we left that door open when we re-enter the world.... imagine then... what would YOU be capable of? . Street photography on a photo mission with @hussw (more about this man later)... we decided to go for a street photography day when it was 40-something-stupid-degrees.... but it was awesome! Started with beers and ended in burgers with some other mates of mine (@latenitekerfuffle & @merridie.b_naturopath )... despite the heat.. it was awesome to hang out... walking the streets, cameras in hand, stories flying... Huss is pretty cool.

She stood against the railing as the train ambled - clickety clack. Lost in a world of words & twirling her hair - front to back. Mind gone blank, camera in hand across from her - there I sat.

"About music? I don't know really... people talk I guess, and I don't always understand. Some people talk about the weirdest things and I just don't CARE" "Not music?" "No, not music. Music can hit you or hug you... yeah you hear it, but you FEEL it..." "......." "I guess I just like to feel things. This is how I do it when everything else doesn't make sense" . Hey guys!

Beautiful moments shared with strangers. . Entering into this Easter Long weekend. I wanted to share this story with you. The older lady was sitting on the train debating with her friends accross the isle... and this baby dropped into her lap. While his mothers attention was distracted he climbed over the back of the chair, landing in her lap! He looked up at her with his big eyes and showed her the game on his tablet. While the mother was horrified... this tough Gran turned to butter and honey... she was so animated playing with the baby. He kept jumping back and fourth helped now by both sides... and when it was time to leave he kept waving at his new Gran until she was out of sight. A connection, from the trusting innocence of a child. It's beautiful. When I see them on the train now, they sit near together so they can play, and Mum fills Gran in on everything that he's been getting up to since they last saw each other. It's become one of my all-time favourite Transport Reality Show... I tune in as much as I can.

Soooo this is a story from my photo adventure with Huss on a massively hot day (like 43°C .... or 109.5°F) I had dropped back a little so Huss could take some Architectural Shots and scan the street... Speeding along Brunswick St was this guy on his bike... perfect for my motion blur in this light... I sett the camera... waited a beat, then aimed. No sooner had I got him in focus he Spots me and YELLS! "HEY!! YOU! WHAT YOU DOING!!" And he slammed on his breaks stopping right in front of me glaring! Huss had turned around as he yelled, but was further up the street. .... so I smiled and opened the photos on the phone. "Hahaha, sorry bud. Just taking a photo, trying to work on tracking and alowing the background to blur. Here it is, actually it's a pretty good shot! Oh, wow, love your expression in it!" He looked at the photo, then looked at me. "Well brother, at least you got a good one!" And cracking a huge smile, he held his fist up. We fist bumped... with the l important boom! He shot off on his bike. And I walked back to meet Huss... while he shook his head smiling at me. Street Photography huh? ..... you can't beat it.

Oblivious in their oblivion. In each other they saw nothing else. Moments stolen on the platform, moments before departure. A warning announcement and with the sound of two hearts tearing, she got on the train... She, every fiber against the window... he waited on the platform... till that train was a speck only his heart could follow. . Transport Street Candid Series & my Prose before Caffeine!

Without a doubt.... the coolest man in New Zealand.... after a long day... parked the car and walking back to the hotel, the soft hum of a sax... slides off the water smooth as jazz and leans against the buildings tilting a hat against the downlight.... A truly great wrong turn to follow the sound and end up at Lower Albert Street... he was a really friendly and absurdly bubbly and laughing... and as soon as he gave breath to that reed.... it became 1930s cool old world glamour..... seriosly great moment.

While everyone was on their way to the Tonic Rooftop at the end of the Qantas instameet QantasInstaMel the 4 of us got separated from the rest and when almost there.... Wilson stops.... we stop... and says "you know we have half an hour to kill.... and there's a carpark just up the street" And we had the most impromptu little shoot. With less people, it was easier I guess to focus on what we saw with our photographic eyes... less distraction... maybe also feeling more at ease.... no idea... but some great shots came out of that carpark from everyone. I love that... the random times that just happen with out planning... a few friends... a camera each... and a location... and just go for it... just Awesome!
