Went on an impromptu photo walk a few weeks back. Dave, one of the guys from the Photography Club I’m a member of said there’s a small waterfalls a few steps from his house. He wanted to show it to us and also … he wanted to use his new ND100 filter. So … we (myself, Dave and 3 more members of the photography club) … Continue reading Seton Nossiter Park Falls
Last Friday, I took the 9:00 pm flight up to Auckland so I could spend the long weekend with family. Unfortunately, due to the strong winds that is typical of Wellington, my flight was delayed and the plane left the Capital at about 10:30-ish. I got in at about 11:30 and went to bed at about midnight. MEH! I think I will start taking the … Continue reading Tall Ships!
Well, I didn’t purposely set out to go shopping – it all just, kinda happened when I got there. You see, the Photography Club was invited to a special selling evening at the Wellington Photographic Supplies on Victoria Street. Since I had RSVP’d, and since it was just a 10 minute walk from where I work, I decided I might as well have a nosey – … Continue reading So today …
This time next week, I’ll be up north, ready to start a week-long break at the Mighty Waikato. The original plan was for me to go to Hawaii but that fizzled out so I considered booking a flight to Rarotonga instead. Somehow that didn’t materialise so I thought maybe I should head off to Norfolk Island … but a friend said that Norfolk Island is ideal for newly-weds or nearly-dead. Hmpft. I’m neither so … I finally ended up in Huntly. From Hawaii to Huntly – that’s a bit of a “dive”, isn’t it? Heeheehee!
I was in town last night – whoohoo! That’s a first, I know! But seriously, I was in town yesterday because I was supposed to have dinner with a few members of the photography club I belong to. However, due to inclement weather (and, to some extent, the Super XV match between the Crusaders and the Reds) we had several cancellations so – the dinner was postponed to another day. Anyway, I figured, since I was already in the city I might as well go and have dinner – even if I were on my own (no harm in that).
So, since I really am not too fond of the restaurants on Courtney Place, I headed off to my favourite street in the whole of Wellington – CUBA STREET! That area is just lined with restaurants and cafes, I was sure one would tickle my fancy (and have prices that were well within my budget). Was fortunate enough to find a free park and meandered down towards Cuba Mall. It was while I was searching for a feed when I chanced upon this busker.
I’ve been in Wellington for well over a year and yet, this is the first time I’ve ever seen a seal on the waterfront! It really must have been cold in the Capital. Actually, I first saw him yesterday. I saw a group of people gathered by the waterfront so, being curious, I went to see what the commotion was all about and voila! Sleeping … Continue reading Welly’s Little Visitor
