2 Precious 2 Mine - Nelson March

Protesting march at yesterday in central Nelson against our government (National Party) is trying to allow a mining at our national park. (Hands off National! It's 2 precious 2 mine!)

700 strong Nelsonians gathered and marched to show our passion to protect precious resource of our nature.  Those placards says it all!

One of my typical lunch time walking route. Lets go through the Queens Gardens and I'll show you some shots with my toy camera one by one.

Toy Camera - Film 3-1

Ok, toy camera is back in business. I will post series of 23 shots from the film roll no.3.
The number in the title is indication the film no and the frame no. I may skip some as it was largely a duplicate shot or it is not quite worth showing here.

It was relatively dark and camera only has about 1/100s for shutter speed and single aperture setting.

When in ROME

Finally went this Italian restaurant for lunch.  I had a very good pizza with a thin crust as I like.

Paul's Toy

1973 Morrie Minor, with a working heater and radio. Since Ben and I have lots of teeth problems, and since Paul is our dentist, we thought we probably paid for the smart looking rear-view mirrors. At least a couple of hub caps?

Gosh, it's cute; even I can see that.

Theme Day: Red

Ben and I have been married 20 years today according to the Japanese government. We don't get marriage licenses there, we just tell them when we get hitched, and I thought it would be a nice day; start of the school year, start of a fiscal year, and in case it didn't work out, we could say it was a joke.

It was a gray Saturday, and we handed the forms to the tired guard at the gate, and went our merry way shopping for kitchen stuff or furniture, I can't remember. Ben had already moved into the apartment, and he needed things, and I remember buying pots and pans made us feel more married than the form bit.

Our wedding was at the end of the month, and I moved in during the weekend following the wedding. Boy, it does feel like just last week.
