The mornings are getting colder and the sun rises significantly later than it used to just a few weeks ago. So we decided to head north, to be more specific, to Mt Taranaki on the North Island. The ferry sail from Picton to Wellington was amazing, with perfect weather conditions – again. :)
Celebrating the harvest of the season (Bauernherbst?), with local food produce and Maori mythology. Verena on stilts, Anna somewhere inside the dragon that represents the element of fire.
A couple of months ago we started hosting wwoofers to help us keeping up with the weeds. Our two girls temporarily had to share a bedroom while wwoofers were here, but that’s not a long term solution really. So we decided to build a little sleepout. These are very common in New Zealand and don’t require a building consent if they’re not larger than 10 m2. The project will probably keep me busy for the next few months. It’s certainly a steep learning curve to get used to all the local building practices and building code requirements.
Impressions of our first Motueka Rudolf Steiner School Autumn Fair on the new campus site. Many many thanks to Oliver Weber for sharing some insights on his professional photography methods and for teaching me how to tell stories with pictures! Really enjoyed the day! :)
After all I guess I made a huge step forward getting better results, compared to the pictures of previous fairs that I took over the past couple of years. Very happy with these ~100 pictures. :)
