You may have found your way here by accident or by intention, whichever it is………..welcome.

KiwiVagabond is more like a concept I would like to live as, than a person who actually lives like a vagabond. My other names are Graham Hughes or BlindPoet. I answer to many names.

Really I would like to be more, way more of a vagabond, to be totally transcient, travelling New Zealand’s length and breadth  seeing the places few people visit or value, to meet people that people don’t usually rub shoulders with.

I would like to do all this from a bus, that has an inbuilt darkroom, and wi fi access. So you can see I am hardly a serious VagaBond. My heart is more the vagabond.

The ‘kiwi’ firmly plants me in Aotearoa, New Zealand. People of this land are affectionately labelled ‘kiwis’, they even distinguish themselves in a crowd using this term. There is more to ‘kiwi’ than the brown hairy fruit, with the green center found in supermarkets around the world, which graces to tops of pavalovas and gives you a clean out.

    It’s really great to feel spring in the air. the daffodils are more than up, the magnolias are flowering for all they are worth……..and the days are getting longer. I seem to realise around this time every year how much winter does really effect me. Coming home from work and instead of it being dark or nearly so, it’s so awesome to have light, and a chance to go take photos somewhere. I have found that photos need light, its all about light. I have caught up developing all the 120 films in my fridge, and now its shooting new films that I can develop that night, scan and process. You may like to check out some of my latest stuff here. Haven’t used a digital camera in over a month. Feels good to take less images but more of the kind I love. http://www.flickr.com/photos/thekiwivagabond/

    This is an idea I have had for a few years and in 2 weeks it will become a reality. Check out the link and if you are in Whangarei it would be cool to see you there…….. http://thelegendsreturn.com/
