Parkour Part 3: The B sides

The last lot of images from the weekend of Urbex/Parkour.

The only problem with going out with a group is that you cant be everywhere at once.

Still need to practice a bit more 🙂

Rails To Nowhere

I was in Gisborne after New Year for a wedding and spotted this place as I was heading out to the venue on the day. Unfortunately I didn’t get to go back and ended up getting to the wedding a bit later than I expected. Luckily I was helping with some of the set-up so I was still early 🙂

Balls Of Light At Kau Point

Revisted Kau Point again yesterday afternoon and since we had been there last it looks like someone had a bit of a party there, complete with generator, smoke machine and they even put in a toilet and shower. It didn’t feel half as spooky as it did the first time we were there.

I hadn’t tried balls of light for a while so decided this was the place to have anther go… Still need to work on my technique a bit to get the balls perfectly spherical but was happy with a least one of them 🙂

Petone Court House

The old Court building in Petone. Apparently there are quite a few of these scattered around New Zealand which have been closed due to earthquake risk. Its a bit sad to see this one like this since its such a nice building… Hopefully someone gets a chance to reinforce and restore it…

I couldn’t tell if this place was abandoned or just run down…

The Adelaide

Newtown landmark pub “The Adelaide” was condemned earlier this year as being structurally unsound in the case of an earthquake and is just sitting there waiting to be demolished or structurally reinforced. After all the earthquakes in Christchurch there have been quite a number of buildings condemned around Wellington this year.

The second shot was taken through a dirty window, it looks like they left in a bit of a hurry…

Former Home For Boys

Spotted this one wandering around… The entire rest of the block has been demolished so I guess this one is protected…
