On our way to Mokau from Hamilton it just so happened that it was the day before whitebait season started. These guys were setting up their stands and moth nets.

I have met with two disappointments on my quest to blog.
Firstly, I got my roll of film back - the results are pretty underwhelming! I will (maybe) publish 2 images out of a roll of 36!! I am in the process of rescanning my slide film in the hopes of better results (wishful thinking)  - so this is to be continued. . .
In the meantime here is one image I am happy with. I took it on the black sand beach at Mokau, North Island, New Zealand.

The second impasse I have encountered is my mum, who claims to no longer be able to read Hebrew! So no luck with translating the stamp on her school book, if it was even hers? Potentially the book could have belonged to her stepfather - who I believe served in the Arab-Israeli War of 1948 (known to Israeli's as the War of Liberation and in Arabic,  'The Catastrophe')
