10 New Years Resolutions for 2012

January 13, 2012

During the summer holidays this year (yes, it is summer in the Southern Hemisphere over Christmas), I travelled through the North Island with my family. On Tuesday, January 10, I spent some time wandering through the centre of Wellington. When I spotted something that suggested a New Years Resolution, I took a photo with my iPhone and used the Instagram App to publish it immediately on Twitter as well as send it to my family by email. The Twitter and email messages contained a thumbnail of the image and the caption. Clicking on the image showed a larger version with a map showing where the photo was taken. The 10 images and captions are displayed in the slide show above.

    This is great Mark, well done! Definite the best combined use of technology I’ve seen for new years resolutions, and about a hundred times less dry. I remember seeing those packets of party pills when I was in NZ for the first time in December! Didn’t try any mind you, but had a lovely time 🙂

    Hi Anne-Marie
    I had fun being a tourist in Wellington for a few days (I live in Dunedin – in the south Island – but get to the capital now and then). I had one afternoon on my own while my partner and two sons went to Te Papa, the national museum. So, while I wandered around the city centre, I thought I would set myself the project of finding 10 images that suggested resolutions. The images suggested the text. I took a picture of the party pills in a shop on Cuba Street. The people working there were terrific, and we talked about all the proto-nostalgic “sprocket film” cameras they sold (analog technology for digital natives). They also made great coffee!

    I enjoyed a week in Melbourne a few years ago when I attended a conference there. I spent my spare time photographing and making audio recordings at Federation square and around the central city. Great memories!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, Anne-Marie. I’ll watch out for you in cyberspace.
