Enter Peter Latham's World.

"Bon Appétit"

"I arrived at Wainui earlier in the day, eager to explore some fresh angles of Akaroa (which lies on the opposite side of the harbour). The clouds & heavy mist had begun to clear as I reached this wharf & to my delight, these seagulls were waiting for the fishing boat to return - with their free lunch of scraps of course! It all reminded me of "Bonjour Akaroa" which I captured years earlier & I knew this could portray a great story. So I started to capture multiple sets of images, stirring the seagulls each time to launch them into flight - anybody watching must have wondered what on earth I was up to! But I persevered until I was confident I had the right set of frames, which I later assembled into this panorama."

“When Peter delivered our pieces, we couldn't believe the incredible detail. The images on his website - impressive as they are - really didn't do our prints justice!“
