Fireworks!

For, what I think, is the third year our flat has avoided where the actual fireworks were happening - New Brighton beach - and have opted for more of an overview of the event. 

We carry our moon chairs and hot chocolate up to Victoria Park - wrapped up super warmly, as November is still really cold. 

We laugh as we watch the crowds of people try to drive around the summit road, with car lights motionless as the traffic backs up. 

After 10 minutes (?) it's all over for another year and the traffic is slowly turning around. 

Lifestyle Shoot: Gabriella from Portfolio Models

We had a super last minute, well last minute for me, shoot with Gabriella on Saturday. 

It was mostly overcast, with a small bit of sun every now and then - perfect conditions in my opinion!

Gabriella was so much fun to work with and didn't even complain when a wave of seawater ended up in her gumboots! 

PORTRAIT SHOOT: Jordan from Portfolio Models.

This shoot initially had a whole different feel to it - sunset in the background, lots of golden light... But true to form, when you want the weather to be sunny, it's really not. 

We had a great model, Jordan, who is from Portfolio Models here in Christchurch. He never complained about the rain, or the fact that we made him stand in wet grass!  

Adventures: Queenstown/Wanaka

Nick and I have been talking about making a trip to Queenstown for the longest time! We went for a family holiday about four years ago, and since i've started biking he wanted to take me there to ride the trails. 

And Furg Burger of course! (last time we had Furg Burger a seagull took all of the chicken out of Nick's burger haha!)

We stayed in a campsite that was surrounded on all sides by mountains and turned our car into a tent. 

We checked out the huge jumps on Dream Track, Rode 7 Mile and Rude Rock, walked through the botanic gardens, went to Arrowtown, spent the day wandering around in Wanaka, went on a 3 hour hike in terrible shoes and photographed stars from Coronet Peak. 

I apologise for the amount of photos - We had a really tough time trying to get the numbers down! 

We were updating our instagram (www.instagram.com/endeavourphoto) while we were away, so there are iPhone photos there. There is also a great photo that shows you why one of the tracks we rode is called "Rude Rock" haha!

It was a great trip away - we are already thinking of where we should go next!

Lifestyle: Interior/Exterior Houses.

I have taken photos of houses before - for selling/renting purposes. 

But never just because they are beautiful - although there are probably some somewhere on file from years ago. 

The problem with taking lots of photos all the time is that, no matter how good your filing is now, trying to find them becomes a mission. 

I took both sets of these photos in a day. 

They are very different houses, but they both have amazing character (and really cute pets!)
