Spring Is Here

We all love this time of year when the weather warms up and the flowers start to bloom but for me, it is also the long daylight hours that I can play with my kids after work and still have time to do some gardening and relax with my wife.

New Brighton Wall Art

New Brighton in Christchurch has always had a flair for art and since the earthquake of 2010/11 more has popped up on the vacant walls of buildings. It gives a bit more flavour and coolness to it but still a suburb that is struggling to move on past the earthquakes of no fault of their own mind you. Over the next year or so a lot of changes will be happening and so many of these creations may go.

Canterbury Australian Football League – Eagles vs Eastern Blues

This was my first time to photo AFL and trying out a new lens. Had a couple of focus issues as there was so much movement and my lack of knowledge of the game that I couldn’t get in the right position to take a good photo. Anyway gave it a good go and next time I’ll be better prepared.
Yes, they play AFL in Christchurch and New Zealand so check out www.cafl.co.nz for more information.

Sunsets

DCIM100MEDIADJI_0006.JPG

Almost every day there is some sort of beautiful sunset that shows just how beautiful the sun shines off the clouds, mountains and trees. I am still waiting to be in the right place and the right time to get that amazing shot of a sunset. For now, check out the photos below I have taken over the last year. Mostly are of around Christchurch but some are from other places around New Zealand taken with my Samsung S7 and some with my Canon 700D.

Opinion: Emirates Team New Zealand Will Lose the American’s Cup to Oracle Team USA

**Updated**
Emirates Team New Zealand have won the 35th America’s Cup in 7-1 over Oracle Team USA.

My thoughts on this article are at the bottom.

Emirates Team New Zealand will lose the American’s Cup to Oracle Team USA from what I saw in race 12 between Team New Zealand and Oracle because of a lack of killer instinct- No Mercy – Mongrel. This is just an opinion from a Team New Zealand fan, Kiwi, and a excited fan of the America’s Cup.

Race 12 was to be the big showdown of the qualifiying series between Team New Zealand and Oracle to see who will take an extra point to the America’s Cup with Team New Zealand can make it.

The reason I feel that Team New Zealand will lose is in short they don’t have the killer instinct for match racing that Oracle and some of the other teams in the Louis Vuitton Series.

There were two passes in the race, one to each Oracle and Team New Zealand but it was only Oracle that showed no mercy that they are here to win and put off the other boat in the race.

Oracle Team USA pass

Oracle did a dial down move and tried to push Team New Zealand down which slows them down but also could give them a penatly

Emirates Team New Zealand pass

Team New Zealand on the other hand just sails pass without trying to force Oracle down which means Team New Zealand can keep their speed up but it also allows Oracle to do the same. You could say Team New Zealand was ahead a bit more and didn’t need to but Oracle just sail by and get the lead back.

 

Maybe Oracle just are better match racers but it is this killer instinct/ No Mercy attitude that I am talking about. This is part of sailing and racing in the America’s Cup which Jimmy Spithill and Oracle Team USA have shown and will use it if they need to to win the race but Team New Zealand haven’t shown any of this and almost seems like they are too nice or too naive and think they can win the Lious Vuitton Cup and hopefully the America’s Cup on speed and skill.

I think we are going to be beaten because we are too nice.

What do you think? Leave a comment

*Updated*
I was so wrong. Team New Zealand, Peter Burling, Glen Ashby and Blair Tuke were a complete class above everyone and outclassed Jimmy Spithill and Oracle in all facets of the America’s Cup. Even in the starts where many people thought Oracle would win, Team New Zealand were all over Oracle. Even preforming Manoeuvres that haven’t been seen in this class. But like Peter Burling said that they are on a step learning curve and with the harden racing of the Louis Vuitton, that made them a much tough compititor than Oracle had anticipated. Well done to Team New Zealand the boys for proving us(me) wrong and showing your skill in one of the toughest sporting events around.

Monarch Butterflies Around Christchurch

So this time last year (2016) I read a couple of bloggers posts about Monarch butterflies around Christchurch and saw their photos. They looked amazing and I went on my own search for them but either I was too late, wrong place or I just couldn’t find them.

This year I tried again and found them and was blown away to see hundreds of them just hanging on a tree. Below are a few photos I took with video coming soon.

The places I went to in Christchurch were Woodham Park and Redwood Park.

Woodham Park – There is a Ginko (Yellow leaves) tree near the playground.

Redwood Park – If you start from the carpark off Main North Road. The tree is behind the tennis court right next to the pathway (second tree from the fence).

Christchurch’s Gateway Arches and Bridge. Welcome to Christchurch

Video of the progress of the Gateway Arches and bridge on the corner of Russley Road and Memorial Avenue out at the airport.

These arches alone are costing 4 million dollars to build not that I am complaining but just a thought as to why do we really need them?! Just so that they look pretty? That money could go to other places but at the end of the day I sure that the Christchurch city council and the New Zealand Governament know what they are doing.

Feel free to comment on this site or our Facebook page if you have any thoughts on the project.
