retro

Sarah, Georgie, Arjun & Tom

Wherever I go I'm always looking at the world through photographers eyes, everyone and everything is a potential photograph, its a wonderful feeling. A few weeks back I was in the Rockshop with my son and couldn't stop staring at a beautiful group of teenage friends playing the guitars.  I was thinking how wonderful they would be to photograph and hoping they wouldn't think I was a weirdo for staring! I went up to them as I do, introduced myself and asked if they would let me take their photographs one evening over summer. 
Come Tuesday 13th Dec it happened, they all met at my place, four teens, my two kids and I loaded in to my van and went for a cruise up Wakapuaka Cemetery and the Boulder Bank. The teens were so natural their misfit style and carefree nature was a joy to capture - I was in my element on a windy summers evening. 

Nostalgia

I have always loved to visit antique shops, they are such quirky places filled with all sorts of relics from the pasts and treasures. One such place is Nostalgia, a shop on my street specialising in antiques, collectables, retro and vintage. 
Nostalgia owner Christine Ross has a special passion for items we grew up with, things our parents and grandparents had. Her business began as a hobby, where her home was filled with collectables but now while there are a few special items she can't part with, everything she finds goes to her shop where she can enjoy them with others. 

"People will walk out with a smile on their face - having had a rush of memories triggered by visiting Nostalgia" 

Christine is always on the look out to purchase items for Nostalgia so if you have anything retro, vintage, antique or collectable pop in and see her. 

You can visit Nostalgia at 50 Vanguard Street, Nelson

Last week I took my camera into Nostalgia and immersed myself in a time gone by, capturing photographs inside this special shop.
