Another trip to my beach – Yah Me <3

Theres a hundred and one things to love down there … harder to concentrate on just 1 thing though. So typically Me-Styles:

I’m trying to marvel at the wonders that are the super-sized seagull, and get a decent photograph of him … but every time I get a little closer, he waddles out a little further. He’s looking at Me like … ‘dude … you know this is My backyard ay … not yours …’. And it occurs to Me how intrusive I am being … ultimately, How intrusive We are on our surroundings which were / are technically somebody / something elses surroundings first.

Wow … thought Me … is this what it feels like to be the coloniser! Lol … Not cool!

So I stopped creeping up on this glorious bird, and left him to it, and I ended up with this shot. Which actually was pretty cool … In the background is Kapiti Island, and compared to birdie here, looks very small indeed.

Which is also what I felt like LOL … small and intrusive and slightly ignorant.

Lesson learnt: Blend … don’t take Over.

  1. I love this photo, even though I don’t like the beach; it’s so open and free. What a beautiful place you live in.
    Big lesson there too. I have often struggled with the concept of imposing my will on the land just because it’s ‘mine’; the phrase ‘blend don’t take over’ fits perfectly, my new mantra.

    • Thankyou :) It is open and free … it used to scare the living shit out of me actually lol, but I love the sound and am just getting used to the water. But yes, it was a lesson I wasn’t expecting lol … I always thought I was a blender ;) Turns out taking over is way easy then blending … my blending skills need work! I like the new mantra :)

say something ...
