Bit of this Bit of that

It’s the time to be busy. So like everyone else I’ve been busy at work and at play. First up I’ve now finished my first box of Greeks. So I’ve now got 40 painted and ready to go.


Now I move onto the Victrix box of Greeks for something a little different.

On the photo side of things since I didn't manage to get out to Marks to game today I cruised down to Muriwai in the late afternoon for some more practice with my new lens. I was hoping to test it out on some surfing, but the tides and waves were against me there. But the Kite Surfers were out in force, along with a few buggy surfers or land surfers… not sure what you call them. Dudes speeding around on the beach in two or more wheeled buggies. Looked like alot of fun.

I’m getting use to the “The Dog” … that’s what we call my big heavy new lens. (That's a story for another time) The lens is simply awesome, I can now pass as a paparazzi and the reaction I get from some people is quite funny.

The funniest was a bunch of non English speaking Asians (Korean's I think) stand shoulder to shoulder to me and take photos of whatever I pointed my camera at.
Hmmm….. sorry mate, your 105mm lens just an’t going to see what I’m looking at with my 896mm. .. but hey, they were friendly enough even if we didn't have a clue what each of us was says.

Anway, here's the shots from today.
