Layton’s been dabbling in astrophotography since we first discovered what an Aurora was a few years ago.
He’s had many successes both with Aurora and other forms of astrophotography; but he’s always wanting to push himself and improve his skills in this area.
Life can get hectic at times. With so much going on it can feel like there’s no light in a never ending tunnel. It’s easy to get lost in day to day living and loose sight of what’s really important. It’s also easy to forget that every day we’re alive, is a day we can be thankful for.
We’ve both been going a little stir crazy and our lives have been so frantic and unforgiving that when a last minute change of plans meant we had a few spare hours the next day, Layton suggested we make use of the time and selfishly take some time out for ourselves.
3, 2, 1…Blast-off!
In the real world the last day of Week 29 saw the 45th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon (although some don’t believe it actually happened). We figured this week the Miniature Men would take a quick trip of their own and weren’t they quick to show off their new gear as they prepared for their adventure!
The highlight for Week 29 saw the Miniature Men gatecrashing one of our photo shoots and meeting Dunedin tattoo artist Tash Shackleton.
They were feeling pretty brave and thought a tattoo was in order. It’s hard to say if they actually went through with it or not; they’ve been pretty quiet about it since leaving her studio.
This is a bit of a change for Layton. Shooting at sunset instead of sunrise (but still at one of his favourite locations – the Invercargill Estuary.
The feature image for this post was the actual ‘Extra’ image used in the 365 Challenge, with the rest of the set in the gallery below. Enjoy!
The boys are back in town!
It was so hard to choose a feature image for this week, but we decided to go with the boys exploring the cat’s hammock because it worked quite well.
Another highlight from this week though was the introduction of the new additions.
Week 27’s feature image is the Miniature Men’s tribute to America’s Independence Day. Due to work and other commitments this week was largely made up of cellphone and filler images as we struggled to find the time to dedicate to the next Mini Men adventure.
