The brevity regime is still in force.
Yesterday I had lunch with a friend and former colleague from university. On the way there, “the Beehive”, inspired if not actually designed by the architect, Sir Basil Spence was in front of me. A little twist of the zoom ring during a low exposure produced an interesting result.
I was a little early so my friend invited me to wait in his office while he dealt with some university administration. He has a good view over the harbour, and a somewhat quirky view onto the Wellington Bus terminus. As I said earlier this week, I like the block colours.
After a pleasant lunch, I was returning to my car and the architecture on Stout Street seemed worth a look. That blue sky was great too.
In the evening, I was at the opening of a regional convention for the Photographic Society of New Zealand. Ours was the host club, and I am happy to say it has got off to a fine start, though the people staying in the on-site accommodation were disconcerted by the lack of hot water in their showers, The conference venue had forgotten to turn the water heater on. A friend from Karori who is a regular reader originally appeared in this image but I cropped it to protect his privacy.
More from the convention tomorrow.
