Old house, Tahora, Taranaki, New Zealand
An old farmhouse in Taranaki. A pack of about a dozen farmdogs were guarding this house, and all came out of the farmgate determined that I should get no closer. I only just managed to reach the safety of my car. But I noticed the farmer oblivious to my predicament, as he was cutting wood with a chainsaw, and had not heard the commotion. I attracted his attention, and he quickly ordered the dogs be quiet, and they immediately turned into friendly pooches. I spent half an hour here, enjoying the sun, and chatting. A good day to be a farmer.
