On the weekend, I also visited a ‘hive day’ for the Christchurch Beekeeping Club and the turn out was fantastic! There must have been 60 + people of all ages, and apparently this was a small turnout! I’m also going to visit the North Canterbury Beekeeping Club next weekend where I expect I’ll get to see more presentations from experienced beekeepers, and experience a great feeling of community – just like on the weekend. I handed out a few fliers to interested people, but with the project spilling into 2022, I’m not really looking for more portraits right now, so keen to take it slow when it comes to mustering up subjects. The more time I spend with beekeepers, the more I feel like its a community that’s for me. I’ll have no worries setting up my first hive next Summer I’m sure with so many friendly people willing to help. I volunteered to help with an image bank for CBC moving forward too, so that will be fun, and the least I can do to give back to the community. It will all be digital of course.
