Keeping it simple, but challenging myself. I love taking photos and already have a 'photoaday' challenge so I want to do something different but related and to develop my skills. So, I am going to constrain my photo-taking to a particular focus - I will take a photo each day or create a drawing and photograph it connected to the Māori kupu o rā and I will also try to put the kupu into a sentence.


Day 5 hongi: the pressing of noses (signifying unity in the mingling of one another's breath)

Hongi is the Māori traditional way of greeting friends and visitors. I have no photo of people greeting each other but found this image I took recently of swans performing their mating dance and they seem to be exchanging breath. I hope that this is not culturally offensive.
