Ko Hikurangi te Maunga, Ko Waiapu te Awa, Ko Ngati Porou te iwi.  Tena koutou, tena koutou, tena tatou katoa.   Nga mihi…. and welcome friends and family to my photo blog.

For me this photo blog has been long in the waiting but I realised, once I got my head around the intricacies of wordpress and blogging, I was able to find a way of bringing people in my world and allowing myself to be let into yours.  So what better way than a photo blog?  I realised, other than my facebook, I don’t share enough of the way I experience and see the world through the lenses of a camera.  And how I would share this with my family and friends.  I’ve already started a blog that reflects a lot of my thoughts on various interests and matters pertaining to faith, spirituality, sexuality, identity, culture and politics you can see at www.paddynoblesblog.com.

So hopefully my amateur photography skills will bring out some good shots and reflections for everyone to see.

Please feel free to check out my other blog ‘Taking the long way home’ at www.paddynoblesblog.com

WELCOME…Nau mai…piki mai…kake mai, haere mai!
