So today …

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.

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.

A busker with a piano?!
