Miranda Kerr for T Magazine by Orlando Bloom
We know and love Miranda Kerr as a model and her hubby Orlando Bloom as a talented actor. But could you ever imagine a photo duo from this loving couple? Could anyone ever imagine Orlando Bloom behind the lens? If you can’t, you’d better start to, as Orlando took his snapshot camera and a short break from filming the “Hobbit” to start a romantic journey with Miranda Kerr to the historic lifeguarding school, where now Maranui Café, the tumult of multicultural Newtown and the unearthly Red Rocks Scientific Reserve are located. T Magazine gives fashion enthusiast a chance to not only admire the beauties of Australia and New Zealand at the same time, but also appreciate the photographing talent of Bloomy!
Columnist David Amsden was really surprised to see that none of the Kiwis ever paid attention to the photographic couple. Bloom states on the Wellingtonians blasé attitude: “People here are just really real”, he said.”They don’t care about the same things that everyone else does.”
Miranda confirmed her husband’s statement and expressed her opinion about the lifestyle gap between Los Angeles and Wellington: “Like this, what we’re doing right now, just sitting in a park, out in public, I can’t do this anywhere else. In Los Angeles, there are people camped out in our driveway every day, waiting to follow us wherever we go.” The celebrity couple lived seven tranquil months in the most remote capital in the world, where Orlando Bloom was filming Peter Jackson’s latest costume movie the “Hobbit”.
The couple also took their 18-month-old son, Flynn, with them to the wild nature. Kerr admits that they have also ventured in a small compass: “We didn’t camp because Flynn’s still a little young for that. But it was just the three of us, nothing to do except be with each other in this shockingly beautiful place.”
Besides the exciting road-trips across New Zealand’s amazing landscape and attending a Shakespeare play at Wellington’s Botanic Garden, the loving family also spent most of their spare time in a seaside villa, where Miranda played an energetic mom, and they organized joint cookings and eatings, as well as an impromptu family dance party.
Scorching Bay is next to their mansion, the favorite playground spot of Miranda and Flynn. Miranda recalls that, “I take Flynn there a lot, just to play in the sand,” she said. “And I was there with him a few days ago, right after coming back from a job in Tokyo. He was covered in sand, I was covered in sand, but it didn’t matter.”
Although, Miranda was taking a short break from all the tension of the modeling career, she still shows her professionalism and love for fashion by bringing a series of enchanting photos done by Bloom. Take a look at the photos and admire the beauty of New Zealand, also drawing inspiration from Miranda’s gorgeous style!
