The wave photograph below was taken a few metres from where my parents used to live, here in New Plymouth, before I was born, unfortunately. My father was a keen photographer, and the family have many of his photos in our possession.

What surprises me is the similarity between some of his photos and mine. Here are a couple of examples.

The left hand image is taken at the port. The building in the centre is the Breakwater Hotel where my parents lived. Last year the Breakwater closed down forever.
