MB1233-5331-Intrepid-Photography
No GoPros, selfie-sticks or automated drones here! Back in the 80’s good old fashioned intrepid photography was being used to capture the February image for the 1983 Friends of the Earth Oparara Calendar. Getting into the outdoors like these guys is so good for you, and this week is Mental Health Awareness Week, with the theme for this year being ‘Connect with Nature.’ Visit their website to read inspiring stories, see what’s on around NZ and win prizes.
