The second bunch of images from the protest in the weekend.
Walking past the Sunday vegetable market I spotted this person getting a stern talking to from the police…
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…
Waitangi Day on the waterfront of Wellington.
Caught up with these guys just as they were finishing up with their rally. Their rallys always tend to have a high number of police.
Sometimes you don’t have to go out to get images… Sometimes they come to you.
This happened just along the road from where I live within view of my house. I waited until the ambulance had left before I headed down wondering how the police would feel about me being there taking photos. I needn’t have worried as at least three police officers came up to me (thinking I was busted) but only to talk about my camera 🙂
It appeared the car lost control going round the corner, rode up the bank and flipped onto its roof. The corner had just been resealed a couple of days before and it still didn’t have its top layer on yet as well as being wet but they may have just been going too fast…
No one was killed but not sure how badly hurt they were.
With the Rugby World Cup on here at the moment there is certainly more of a Police presence around town. The city really has a bit of a strange vibe at the moment, people aren’t gathering and interacting as they usually do.
Maybe its just the full moon 🙂
Crash on the corner of Victoria Street and Ghuznee Street from a couple of weeks back. This is a good example why a MG and an SUV shouldn’t play together.
I spotted this in Leftbank Mall earlier in the week… Apparently the police are looking for new ways to recruit people.
Um isn’t this kind of illegal? Maybe they got permission?
To me this just evokes images of a couple of uniformed cops with spray cans and stencils looking shifty… possibly one on lookout while the other puts up the stencil… both jumping at the sound of any passerby…
The old guy looking in the window was just a bonus…
Panning shots with most cameras can be difficult… When your camera is inverted left to right you pretty much have to wing it.
Still even though I missed most of the car the part I did get was pretty bang on… Might have to try it again.
They were racing up to Manners Street where yet another person had been hit by a bus after then whole road layout change thing from late last year… I have that image for another post.
I guess even superheroes have bad days…
