'A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, for 2013'

Gus - very seriously explaining his theory to me about the statue of Mahatma Gandhi that is situated in front of the Wellington train station.  This is his 'we're talking serious business' face.

Felix - climbing onto Gus' lap as they prepare to descend the big slide at the Wellington Botanical playground.  He demonstrated complete trust that his big brother would look after him when they shot down the slide, squealing with absolute delight, and then did it all over again.  I was standing there watching, silently freaking out, but doing my very best just to stand back and let them have their fun.  Thank goodness neither boys chose to have a go on the flying fox this time!

  1. love your photos. such seriousness in the first one. cute.

  2. Looks like lots of fun was had...we have just returned from a holiday in NZ (Northland) we had a fab need for the jackets up there though. xx

  3. wow, the colour and light in the second shot is marvellous!

  4. Thanks ladies! Bron - quite a temperature difference between Northland and Welington. I used to live up north, many moons ago now.
