With the gift season approaching please spare me the liberty of suggesting a look at these wonderful (if I say so myself) photographic books of some well known and exotic places on our planet. And check for discount available below.

Do you know anyone that is, or are you planning to head off to some overseas land? You may find images that will enthuse your travel or serve as a memoir of a place you have been. I sincerely hope you enjoy looking.

As a traveling photographer one of the great pleasures on returning is to view the images captured and then self-publish a photographic essay. The output, the books, are available as ebooks or hard copy coffee table quality 10 x 8 inch glossy books. Over 100 images form most books with some explanations and descriptions, but they are image rich.

Why not click here and take a preview of the titles and any of the books that catch your attention, its free and you can view the entire book just out of interest or with a view to acquire.

My bookstore, some of the titles avaiable

Brick Bay Winery

First time we’ve bothered to visit. Thanks to an employee I met today in Matakana village who put the case we headed up. All I can say now is disappointed  it took so long for to get there. A marvelous  experience. Excellent  coffee and  food. The sculpture was worth every minute of the 2.5 hours it took us to get around.

The Kauri Grove and Nikau trail add to the experience of 50 odd large & often quirky sculptures.
