South By Southwest

Wellington, New Zealand, March 2015:  Wellington’s wild Southwest coast by Landrover:  Ohiro Bay to Redrocks, through Devil’s Gate and onto Tongue Point and the leaning Karori Rock lighthouse… then back again…

Beirut

Beirut, Lebanon, Nov 2005: A video capturing some scenes from Beirut back in 2005. Beginning from entering the city from the north [Tripoli], to where I was staying near the former “Green Line“-  the start point for the 2005 Beirut Marathon. The Green Line was a demarcation through central Beirut during the Lebanese Civil War [1975-1990]. It separated the […]

Damascene

Damascus, Syria, Nov 2005:  Damascene refers to someone from Damascus- (alternatively it could be read as ‘Damascus Scenes’)- hence the title of this video. I was fortunate enough to visit Damascus in a relative time of peace- but in a matter of years the country would be torn apart, into a war  that does not seem […]

The Lost City: part II

Olympos, Turkey, Friday Oct 28th 2005:  Two years after first visiting Olympos (in South-West Turkey) I returned. I was part way through an Athens to Cairo overland trip that would take me to Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel and eventually Egypt. As it turned out I stayed a lot longer than planned… I ran into “Smiley”soon after […]

Stations

Jerusalem, Israel, Nov 2005: An exploration/pilgrimage of sorts. It was a Sunday morning, mass was on in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. I wasn’t at mass though- but rather exploring the ground floor of the church as the organ rang out above…

Seafarer

Wellington, NZ, yesterday: Last night I did something I haven’t done for years- go fishing! We went out on the Seafarer II, with owner/skipper Jono Delich at the helm, Bronwyn first mate, and 19 punters hoping to catch the big one. They weren’t biting, but the wind was- this is Wellington after all- “windy city”. We kept […]

No Military Parade

In remembrance to all the lives lost, in the many tragic and pointless wars that have raged over the past 100 years. In particular World War 1- (or the Great War)- which began a century ago this year. Yesterday also marks Remembrance Day, the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally […]

Chiller

Patea, Taranaki, NZ, early 2012. An early attempt at making a video- I think I’ve improved (ever so slightly) since. This was filmed at a favorite location in Taranaki, the Patea Coolstores. Just walking around the place gives me the creeps- hence the horror-esque soundtrack. Happy Halloween folks!
