Lost Civilisation

After all the flooding a couple of weeks ago it is strange the things you find washed down streams…

Napier, Art Deco Capital Of New Zealand

Just spent the last weekend in Napier for a cousins wedding. I shot a number of films while I was there and due to bad remembering developed one of the ones I shot round town while I was supposed to be developing the ones I took at the wedding 🙂

Most of Napier was levelled in an earthquake in 1931 which killed 256 people but was mostly rebuilt in the Art Deco style that was popular at the time.

Wooden Sculpture

While stopping in Carterton for a bite to eat I noticed this sculpture with the light hitting it just right.

Solace In The Wind Meets Titanic

Over the weekend in Wellington there was a massive music festival that had areas set up all round the waterfront… This led to there being a fair amount of drunk people on the waterfront moving from zone to zone… Lets just say that lots of this sort of thing happened…

Statue Stare Down

Its always a bit disquieting being stared down by a statue…

Solace In The Wind

I really like this statue on Wellingtons waterfront but I can never get it looking the way I want it to… This one was close…

Reflection Sculpture and Diver

It was kind of a nothing happening day so I decided to go shoot the statue/sculpture I had seen a couple of days ago on the Wellington waterfront. The sky was pretty overcast so the conditions were pretty good (although I will go back at nigh and shoot with flash sometime in the future).

So I get there and start taking some shots when all of a sudden people start jumping off the wharf directly behind the sculpture…wtf… some sort of training for dive people I guess… They started doing circuits on the dock so it gave me a good opportunity to get some pics.

P N D S was written on their wetsuits but didn’t get anything from google and they were going pretty hard out so was thinking they were possibly Navy… If anyone knows?

I love it when stuff like this happens 🙂

Reflection.

The one on the right is a sculpture.
