Today is the last day of operation for my parent’s @fisherpaykelau Shacklock oven. It’s 40 years old and still works to this day (it’s only being replaced due to a dodgy door hinge). It came with the house and has been in the family longer than I have. Well done, Fisher & Paykel.
Let me tell you a story: On the 29th we headed out to the beach so @lifewithambernikita could photograph the sunset, but it was very cloudy (and we were under-dressed for the southerly wind). On the 30th we returned with great expectations, dressed for the conditions (even braving light rain) with the toddler asleep hours ago. Sadly, it was another cloudy night.
Then tonight, the 31st, the clouds disappeared and it was going to be an epic sunset. But alas, the toddler wouldn’t sleep. All my wife wanted to do, for days, was photograph the sunset.
When the time ticked over to ‘point of no return’, I convinced her that the grandparents would take care of the toddler, and we sped our way out to the beach (literally sped a little too much). We skipped the carpark and drove straight out onto the sand, with seconds to spare before the majestic sunset would be gone.
She’s crazy and impulsive, and loves a good photograph. She‘ll happily take risks to get the perfect shot. And that’s why I love her 😍
I’ve been wielding cameras for 20 years, but I’m happy to step aside for my wife @lifewithambernikita who has discovered a new love for DSLR photography (which now makes her 200% sexier)
I’ve been to @transportworld numerous times during its construction, but I’ve never taken my wife & son through there until today. It’s easy to forgot what an amazing collection it is, and how well it’s designed and laid out. Something for Invercargill to be truly proud of.
