Here’s a ramble through 2015 expressed in the ‘photos I took on my phone’ medium. I’ve actually tried to take the DSLR actually out of its bag more often this year in order to get slightly nicer, slightly more considered photos happening, but that’s, erm, a work in progress. Anyway. Onward.

Just some sweet garden gnomes I was kindly gifted.
In the middle of scoring 237 against in the CWC quarter final, Martin Guptill hit one on the roof of the packed Westpac Stadium. A few minutes later, this bloke went up there to get it.
And after everyone went home from THAT semi final at Eden Park, these guys went in the middle for a pretend game and selfies. They got in trouble.
Some goober at the MCG.
I’ve largely given up food photography but holy balls, when you’re basically served real-life Fred Flintsone ribs, you can’t not. Recommended.
So, I work at Fonterra now. I got to go to Fieldays and met a long-time hero. Background woman spectacularly unimpressed.
This is my reality now.
We got cats, Sweetpea and Fred. Once the former stopped chewing through every phone charger cable in the house, we got on fine.
Some neighbour’s plant. In my dream compound / Led Zep-style country estate, I would like a whole garden of these.
Dorking out next to a sweet Falcon at The Mount.
Halloween decoration or Klansman? You be the judge.
My attempt to make a baked pancake turned out kind of weird, but kind of compelling.
Kids cricket at East Coast Bays. Have to say, I loved being a cricket dad kind of more than being a football dad, it’s much more relaxing watching kids sport in tee shirt and shorts with a shit flat white in your hands.
Joseph Parker Stalkipedia. He was a cool guy and later casually jumped on the bar’s guitar and piano and kicked arse.
Ray Columbus hotel portrait. Unexpected and a little bit terrifying, if I’m honest.
This Mount Victoria fire was obviously worrying for all concerned, but looked pretty sweet from our office.
