I enjoy taking photos of the sky and our awa in Wairoa. They are never the same but always beautiful. I love the shot I took of the Mohaka Viaduct in the late afternoon. One special memory was playing on the viaduct while dad did some repairs. My siblings and I would often accompany our dad to work on the Railways in the 80s during the school holidays. I look up there now and think how lucky we were to experience the world as we did.

What do you enjoy most about taking photographs?
Capturing a moment in time, a memory.
