St Patrick’s Day

A group of people wait for their friend to emerge from the public toilets on St Patrick’s Day…

Waiting For The Bus

Autumn has been here for almost a month and it is starting to show not just in the  weather but in the softness of the light. Shadows are turning up where none were previously at the same time of day… Its an exciting time 🙂

Great Light

Sometimes the light in this city is awesome…

Help A Friend

In the interest of using this blog for the purposes of good instead of evil for a change…

A friend of mine is trying to get a project up and running through PledgeMe which is basically a New Zealand kickstart platform.

You can check it out HERE

If you can help cool, if not go check it out anyway 🙂

Oh and here is a half frame pano from a lookout above Wellington 🙂

Creepy Naked Manakin Is Watching You

While you walk past underneath… He watches…

Digital TLR

Digital adaptor for an old TLR… Couldn’t resist… I wonder if the screen has grid lines on it? I did this once with my 4×5 camera and it was pretty cool 🙂

Hugs In The Rain Under A Giant Umbrella

While lining up this shot to catch people walking across the crossing these two came along and hugged right in front of me…

Oh and yes it is raining again here today.

Man With Dog

After nearly a solid week of rain this shot from a couple of weeks ago made me smile.

Weather Bomb

A couple of weeks back Wellington had a “Weather Bomb”, essentially this meant gale force winds and rain, flights were cancelled and the ferries stopped running. Not the sort of weather to take out a Rollei so took out the F5 with a 24mm Lens.

Window Washer

Nothing remarkable about this shot apart from the fact that in the last 8 years in Wellington this is only the second time I have seen someone doing this.

Possibly a new definition for High Chair…

Quite a busy place to have a nap…

Twisted Metal

Concrete reinforcing after the first stage of demolition… I took this last Tuesday and will go back again today to see how they are getting on… I expect it will be quite different…

Austin

An old Austin you might recognise from assisting at the Evil Dead shoot from a couple of months ago…

I’m pretty sure you don’t need to download an ap for this…

Sea Shepherd Flag

The Sea Shepherd flag on the back of the Bob Barker vessel as it resupplies in Wellington before heading south to link up with the Steve Irwin to protest against whaling in the southern ocean.

I have to say that I was pretty impressed by this ship, unfortunatley it was too big to get a shot on the Rollei but I took one on my XA3 (still to be processed). It looked a lot like some of the NZ navy vessels that were in port earlier in the year.
