How I see the world

A trip into town


I went into town today for the first time since before Christmas, to do some shopping and undertake a bit of a photo walk.

I was unsuccessful in my shopping. The camera shop I went to only had one monopod in stock – which at 300 New Zealand dollars was more than I was willing to pay. But it was a gorgeous day with lots of people out on the waterfront and some good photo opportunities.

I got off the bus near the ramp up to the stadium (overlooking the railway station)

posted for the weekly prompts weekend challenge – warning

This guy is a regular sight – particularly when cruise ships are in town

Posted for Cee’s Black and White photo challenge anything to do with music

Further around is the Wellington sign. The letters have been refurbished from the previous matt painted finish. Now they are highly reflective and depending on the angle of the sun go from orange through a range of amber shades (perfect for Cee’s Midweek Madness) to greens and blues

And finally an invitation to pull up a seat, although I went somewhere else for a bite to eat
