One of the loveliest faces in the world - sadly deceased
I wrote a blog about this lovely man, a man who was part of my life for many many years, a man who took on the role of father and grandfather after my parents died – I entitled it Good Debt .
I said it all in the blog, so I won’t repeat myself. What I will say though is that his face was always full of love, care and compassion. Always smiling, always telling everyone how much he loved them and how special they were to him. Even as this photo was taken, when he was extremely ill, his love shines through.
Photographed in Civic Square, Wellington on a drizzly day.
Like me, she was checking out the South African food and crafts being exhibited as part of the Rugby World Cup 2011 celebrations in our wonderful city. I asked if I could photograph her hair (see textures) … she was very obliging!
I love the little drops of misty rain in her hair and on her glasses.
Photographed tonight at the Rugby World Cup 2011 match between Australia and Fiji at the Wellington (Westpac) Stadium. this man was sitting a few along from me and every time I looked in his direction his gaze was intense. At times he had his chin cupped in his tatooed hand; otherwise he stared straight ahead with the same expression.
It’s good to be a New Zealander right now … we have a lot to be proud of for such a small country. With another eight weeks of competition ahead, we’re in for an exciting time.
Dearest to my heart at each game is the superb singing of the 20 national anthems – sung by choral groups from around the country and accompanied by our very own New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (NZSO). The orchestration is beautiful, the singing superb. Considerable effort has gone in to performing each anthem to the highest standard.
