My new wide angle lens was begging to be taken out for a walk.
Wellington city offers a lot of opportunity for wide angle views, so I began where I parked, on The Terrace.
From beside the James Cook hotel, there is a walkway through the car park that connects to an elevator down to Lambton Quay. One of my degrees was conducted in the James Cook before Massey University had a Wellington Campus so there was a touch of nostalgia in finding myself in that somewhat dated corridor.
Out on Lambton Quay, looking North , I found the place almost deserted. Admittedly it was 4pm on a cold bleak Sunday afternoon.
A feature of Wellington’s public art is the number of “kinetic sculptures” … things that move with, and celebrate the city’s infamous wind. This particular piece looks like a set of luminous green M&Ms, each pivoted on the one below. The whole things writhes and swings in anything above a light breeze.
That’s all for today.
