It’s a chilly one here in Wellington, a perfect time to post these pictures and remember what fun my friends and I had on our new years bach holiday at Waitarere, and think longingly about the fun we’ll have this coming summer.
All photos by Jason.
On new years eve we put on our glad rags (I wore a dress I bought from an op shop that very day), drank bubbles or gin, and had a fancy dinner before dancing into the night. I’m hoping for the same again this year, and some sort of pagan picnic (barefoot frolicking! red wine! crown of foliage in our hair!) on new years day.
Jason just developed a roll of film from ten months ago, with no idea what was on it. Turns out, all sorts of summery goodness! These pictures are from our friend’s wedding in Opotiki, my family Christmas in Auckland, and the Festival of the Lights at Pukikura Park in New Plymouth.
I’m really enjoying Dress, memory, a project by writer Lorelai Vashti. Every friday for six months a new dress, photographed by her friend Lee Sandwith, and accompanying memory will appear on the site. It’s really beautiful.
Even as my tastes move away from fancy-pretty-twee, there’s always a place in my heart for the work of Tim Walker.
