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

I am a family man, a passionate amateur photographer and a retired academic . What's the purpose of this blog? Well in the first instance it provides me with a platform from which to resume writing, an activity I greatly enjoy. What will the blog be about? Anything that takes my fancy but it is likely to arise from things I see and experience, in my family, in my travels, or anything else I feel like. Each daily post will contain one or more images made the previous day. Sometimes the image will illustrate the points made in the prose, and sometimes the prose will attempt to interpret the image. What kind of images will they be? Always safe for work and family. Usually they will be representational, and sometimes they will be impressionistic or experimental.
