December 10, 2014 … at the very extreme edge of the day

A series of night shots is usually a sign of trouble.

Lower Hutt

Lower Hutt … the old main street is a sad remnant of its former self, and thoroughly outclassed by the nearby mall


This is no exception. It means I got distracted (or lazy) during the day and ran out of daylight before I got my shots. Sometimes I can do night shots with deliberate intent, but as in this case, it is mostly a desperate rush not to break the chain. High St, Lower Hutt looking South towards the Ewen Bridge is lit with seasonal decorations. This was taken after the last camera club meeting for the year.


Christmas in Jackson St


In Jackson Street, Petone, there was a star on the old Town Hall clock and a green reflection on the street. Odd but interesting.


Long distance tanker waits for its driver


On the Esplanade, a long-haul tanker was parked on the street outside the motel where it’s driver was presumably sleeping. The stainless cladding of the tanks was reflecting nicely as traffic came and went.

That’s all for now.



About wysiwygpurple

Retirement suits me well. I spend much of my time out making pictures, or at home organizing and refining my pictures. This blog provides me with a platform from which I can indulge my passion for improving my photography and at the same time analyze my thoughts about what I have seen, where I have been and what is happening in my life. My images set out to be honest, but that does not mean I have not adjusted them. I use software to display what I saw though the viewfinder to best advantage. My preference is for landscape and nature, and is mostly centred around my hometown of Wellington, New Zealand.
