First thing that came to mind was the roof over my head, that's pretty important. So to start, here's my son and his offisider making sure I have no leaks in that roof.
And then I was stumped. I looked up a definition of over your head and confirmed 'if someone is in over their head, they are out of their depth in something they are involved in, and may end up in a mess. ' So, you've been warned.
Jami avoided being in over her head by remembering her water wings:
Wish to were so simple to keep me out of a mess sometimes!
On Wednesday I went looking for something constructive to look up at. There are no high rises in Whangarei but a side gate to the new Events Centre was open when I went past so I snuck in to grab a shot. It looked sort of weird without a soul in sight. I could picture it packed with football fans, imagine the cheering; the silence was sort of eerie. If there are any ghosts of sports fans lurking, they didn't show themselves.
Rugby football fever generates a lot of hot air in this country. I presume this is some sort of air extractor:
Next door to the stadium are the cricket grounds. As I was preparing for a photo, a groundsman came running up to warn me the water sprinklers were about to come on about a foot away from where I was standing. Oh, oh, that would have been something I didn't want over my head! So I moved to get my Romeo and Juliet shot. I think they may have been a bit over their heads in love. Darn, that was head over heels, wasn't it? Never mind, there is a balcony!
A short 4 km drive took me to A H Reed Park, then a quick walk along the canopy walkway provided me with something wonderful over my head. This is a reasonably young kauri but still worth looking up at.
Then I remembered this photo taken right on my doorstep of my grand-daughter looking up at another kauri in 'our' forest that I look out at daily:
This is another common sight - pampas grass growing on the banks along the side of our road:
Yesterday evening, desperately seeking inspiration, I wandered outside with my camera thinking perhaps I could get a shot looking up at the mountains, but they were shrouded in rain and mist.
That's it! I give up! I'm going to have to look up to higher power!
I wonder what is "over the heads' of the rest of the team. Be assured there will be some terrifiic photography of the unexpected if you care to follow me here.
