Heather is our microfilm camera operator, she is crazy about snapping pictures! Everywhere she went, her "cheap" Canon Powershot A470 is there, snapping away!
She is not worry about mega pixels and all the bell and whistles missing from her little point and shoot camera, she just wanna have fun taking pictures and capturing a slice of memory!!
More of us photographers should be like Heather!
Last week Heather went on a two week break to Greymouth on the west coast of the South Island . They went through Arthur's Pass which is 45 minutes drive from Greymouth.
Her dad`s house is right next to the beach at Greymouth.
Here are a selection of her shots I help edit.

"Nice work, not bad at all for a newbie, Newby!" I commend, tongue in cheek and got this reply:
"My maiden name is the same as my facebook ID... Heather Newby. I`m actually related to royalty. There are villages and bridges and other sundry items/places/pubs in England named after my family so if the queen come to my house when she visits, you can take the official pics."
"The one good thing about my forebears "breaking away from the pack" (the royal family) is that our branch of the family now has chin(s)!"
Ha ha ha...
