That sucks, Gabe - hopefully they turn out alright. I still have a greater preference for non-digital photos. Just nostalgic value, really.

Good on you! It's my grandpa that's kept me going, just knowing how he felt about me and how he wanted me to succeed. I don't think anyone else has had such a positive influence on me.

You know, I really strongly feel that apart from genuine unconditional love, the most important thing you can give a kid is your belief in them. They just need someone to believe, know what I mean?

Great photos.

You guys don't get winter, do you? Now I remember why I hate you so much.

I've no doubt that just about anything good in my life is due to my mother. She nurtured everything. As an albino, I'm meant to have nystagmus - i.e. involuntary eye movement. I don't; Mum spent so much time with me as a baby getting me to focus on objects and pictures and learning to read that it countered the effect of the nystagmus.

She read to me ALL THE TIME. I just about mean literally! I wasn't even an hour old and she began reading to me. It got to the point that when she baked, she would sit me on the bench and read the recipes out to me (now, when I bake, I can't help but read the recipes aloud to myself). No wonder I love books and libraries so much.

Thanks.

Nah, that's mid-summer. In June/July it can get pretty cold on the Kapiti Coast. Perhaps not in raw temperature (I can't remember much below -10C), but the wind comes up from Antarctica to New Zealand, shoots up the east coast of the South Island, then slams straight into the southern North Island.

Here in Australia ... Melbourne sort of has a winter, but I lived in Queensland for nine years and it definitely does not! Its four seasons are summer, after summer, slightly cooler than summer, and nearly summer again.

Your mum sounds awesome, Ax!

Gabe, I think I've only seen natural snow twice in my life. It's unfortunate, because I really enjoy snow sports.

Yeah, it was a good thing my parents (as well as a lot of kids) started to notice I loved drawing when I was just young. Mum has supported me with it constantly, sometimes she still mothers me too much! Dad cares too, but he's a different character, he doesn't see me as often because of his working schedule (and especially now that I've moved out) so he's not always up to date on things and may not always be certain of what to say. But you know, just getting anything out of him is good.

I really have to see this, I imagine it's very peppy, like telling a story to a child.

Hell yes. She's too nice sometimes. I still don't know how the fuck she ended up with my father. I often wish I were more like her than Dad.

I've been to the snow a few times ... back in New Zealand, when I was about seven, it NEARLY snowed in my hometown! The snow came right down the hill immediately behind the town, but didn't quite get to sea level. I don't think I've touched snow in over a decade now though.

So I've committed U2 heresy over on the latest Survivor thread, but I really do think Rise Up is more deserving of a place on the Joshua Tree than ISHFWILF.

No, I don't think it's that interesting. It's actually probably most like what I used to do in short-prep debates, where I'd walk around the prep room articulating ideas to myself. Except in this case I'm not trying to come up with an engaging intro; I'm trying to cream together butter and sugar!

Hi Mizza!

We're talking photography and influential people in our lives and snow and stuff.

More photography, whee, because I should be working but procrastination is more fun.

Will you Americans (and probably Aussies too) laugh at me when I say this is New Zealand's most important highway, just 25 minutes outside the national capital?
