 I had a terrible restlessness when I was in New Zealand. I had to get out. The world was happening and I was missing it. Of course, predictably, now I am filled with a sweet nostalgic longing for New Zealand. Sun drenched pictures of friends on porches drinking wine and looking happy are appearing on my newsfeed and I'm feeling pangs of homesickness. I am returning in April for my brothers wedding and I'm already dreaming about it at night. It will be so strange to 'holiday' in my home country. 

I really love Derek Henderson's pictures of New Zealand. It captures life beyond the big cities, reminding me of my childhood in small town New Zealand. I saw Derek speak at semi permanent a few years back and had a chance to talk to him at the after party. He is a super nice chilled out guy and also does great shoots for Russh. You can check out his website here.

My week in pictures

little teepees are popping up everywhere, protecting trees from imminent snow
roller door advertising - so great 
my favourite family - the kids told me 'Harry Potter is an english teacher'
he walked through the main drag of town with his mower, so nonchalant! 
the last rays of sun before the snow hits
