Leaving things until the last minute is a bad habit of mine.
Yesterday was the last possible day to submit images to a national competition so much of my day was tied up with finding eight images that seemed to match the criteria. Of course, ten minutes after I pressed send, I was second-guessing myself and I know I shall regret my selection when the results come out. Anyway, as a result, my photography fr the day was also at the last minute. From Oriental Bay, the cruise liner Oosterdam was not far off sailing time. She certainly occupies a large chunk of the available berthage.
In Frank Kitts Park, the fountain was running and I tried for some contrast against the setting sun. Somehow that darned fountain knows when I am near because it shuts off before I could complete the sequence I intended.
I turned my back on it in time to see the Singaporean container ship Kota Lestari heading out of the harbour bound for Napier.
Hoping for some city lights, I crossed back to Oriental Bay and pointed the lens towards the city and Kelburn. I am not often in the city at night so I am unsure how long Victoria University has been lighting up the historic and much loved Hunter Building but it certainly is a jewel in the city’s crown.
Maybe I’ll stop procrastinating tomorrow.
