Mount Taranaki -
I’d heard that Taranaki is often covered by cloud and therefore frustrating to us tourists who aren’t able to wait long for this majestic mountain to make an appearance. When I got to New Plymouth I thought I was going to be frustrated by him. I spent the day visiting both the North Egmont and Dawson Falls visitors centres and did a couple of hikes on a mountain that I just couldn’t see for all the rain and mist. The following day I just couldn’t bear to leave without seeing the mountain myself and getting a photograph, so I took a chance that the weather was going to break later that afternoon, and extended my stay for one more night. Sure enough the clouds cleared, though the wind stayed strong, and I decided on a likely good location for a decent view. And wow, what a humbling view, I was so pleased to get a shot. It was definitely worth being patient! #newzealand#taranaki#mtegmont#dawsonfalls @docgovtnz #travelnz#northislandnz#newplymouth#awesome_earthpix#sunset#longexposure#canon_nz#ig_nz#mountainview#stunning#travel#photography#landscapephotography#nzmustdo#wanderlust

The previous owners of our house left their turntable, I always thought that I wanted one once we will be in our house.
Just bought the only vinyl from the second hand of the village. Such a fun one, and yes @natashasciascia is on the cover! ;)

We live in a world where people love to blame others. A world where people’s messes are often cleaned up by someone else. A world where the consequences for someone’s fucking shitty choices are often put onto someone else. It can’t possibly be their fault, there was this reason or that reason that they “had” to do that. 〰️
If people weren’t so busy denying their mistakes and forcing the blame onto other people, they might actually learn from them. 〰️
If you make a choice, to take an action, that leads to a shitty result have the balls to accept the responsibility and take ownership of consequences. ✌️ #consequences#actions#results#choices#ownership#taranaki#blame#thoughts#truth#realtalk
Although you can't see it, there's a mountain under all those dark clouds and that's where those clouds stayed for most of the day. Driving around the mountain, I only got a small amount of rain. Enough to get the truck dirty, but not quite enough to wash it clean again. .

“Land for cowboys” 2003 . Great to be reunited with this painting I did 15 years ago. It’s about my old boss in Karamea getting on the liquor one afternoon and ended up getting his throat slit. It’s know part of the Valentine collection here in Taranaki . #karamea#oilpainting#taranaki
