Seen on Manners Street… I can’t remember when I took this but it was in the last week or so. The warmer weather seems to be bringing them out of the woodwork.
I find it hard to believe that there is talk of moving them along for the rugby world cup to make the city look nice… Where are they going to move them along to?
It seems I have been hanging out at this corner quite a lot lately
A couple of rainy day street portraits on the corner of Manners Street and Victoria Street.
I like going out on rainy days, people seem more surprised that you are taking their photo and the light is usually much less harsh than when it is sunny. I usually find the end of a covered section of pavement and take photos of people walking in the rain.
As I was coming back from getting lunch I noticed a group of people clustered around someone on the footpath. As I got closer it turned out to be someone who had just stepped out onto the street without looking both ways (day 3 of the new road layout where buses go both ways on a previously one way street) and was hit by a bus.
Lets just say that this was a really hard image to take and I think this comes across in the image itself… it probably didn’t help that I was shooting 50 ISO film… but I think the camera shake adds some anonymity to the image.
