Whale - 鯨

Kaikoura, New Zealand
(35mm Film - scanned)

This series of shots were taken in 1992 when we went whale watching tour off from Kaikoura.
Some of the images have a light over damage on the negative, but I still treasure those shots and they bring back the excitement I had at the time.


  1. Wow! They are spectacular - well worth treasuring. Beauty, grace and enormity are all expressed. Lovely.

  2. Yes, they are spectacular, aren’t they?
    When a photo shop developed this, they are impressed but I was disappointed by the damage I made on negative.
    But they are still my treasure shots.

  3. Wow, I can just say I wish I was there ...

    Good on tou share them with us
