This morning I ran a macro class at Alowyn Gardens and once it was done I took some photos for Weekend Wanderings of the place through the Holga Lens.
When I did the boat cruise around Doubtful Sound with Real Journeys I did a blog post, but at the time I promised to do another one that would be more detailed. This is that post. It was an unexpected day, but one of my favourites while in New Zealand.
Today sees us in Invercargill on Day 9 of my New Zealand Wanderings. This is going to be quick and I will explain more soon.
Day 8 of our New Zealand Wanderings was very wet as we explored Doubtful Sound. We did the boat cruise with Real Journeys to Doubtful Sound, but it was so wet and rained the whole time.

A couple of weeks ago I was at Alowyn Gardens taking photos of the flowers before and after the rain. Water drops on flowers are fantastic, they really bring out the colours of the flowers.
