two sides of work


I've been out and about for work recently.
I went with a group from work to visit the pine forest.

There were lots of these all ready for export markets.....
and a few of these too!


And then I had to go to Wellington for work and when I stopped to admire the view from my room, 
all I could think about was earthquakes!



Hope you are all having an interesting week!
Carole :)

Very interesting contrast! I've been off from the blogworld for the most part this past couple of weeks so I'm sorry I missed the rest of your celebration. Sounds like it's been fun!

You look good in orange! ;)
OOOoooo wouldn't want to be in a tall building during an earthquake. Definitely unnnerving even from here (the other side of the world!)

I agree with Nathalie - high vis suits you! And I'd be thinking about earthquakes too.... :(

I'll bet it's great to have a job that doesn't chain you to a desk! What do you do?

I've been in some healthy earthquakes...but usually with my feet on the ground/ground floor!

Great photos.
Living in California I have experienced many small and large earthquakes.
My heart goes out to those people in Japan who are suffering. Prayers to everyone.
Hugs, Dogwood
