NEW ZEALAND MUSIC MONTH
Today is the first day in the ninth year of NZ music month. Apparently each year the research boffins note that during May more NZ music is sold than in any other month. D'oh.
So, in honour of that fact I will post Kiwi music this month (more than I usually do) and I have decided that I will also claim it as NZ photography month (since I like to add my 2 cents worth when I get the chance). Hence the above photo which I took of a rather curious duck at Corsair Bay. This wee bay is very sheltered and only takes about 15 minutes to get to from our place, it is a favourite destination for picnics in our household! As you can also see, once I had taken the photo I played with it slightly and I really like the effect! If you click on the photo you see it in bigger detail -What do you think? (Nobody tell me I'm quackers please)
Here is a group I'm quite liking at the moment, even tho' I'm not entirely sure why. They are a bit "poppy" but some of their other stuff is good and I like the fact that my girls sing along. They also remind me of another group but for the life of me I can't recall just which group! Perhaps someone out there in cyberspace who has been kinder to their braincells than I have may be able to think of it.... Midnight Youth - enjoy!
