I enjoy being a member of the Hutt Camera Club.
Not everything we do is successful, but everything we do is done in good company and a spirit of fun. Last evening we had scheduled our annual “winter walkabout”. Given the time of year and the name of the season we should not have been surprised at how cold it was, though it was dry, at least. A dozen of us turned out in central Wellington, despite the miserable conditions. Our route took us up Cuba st, along Vivian Street and back down Taranaki Street to the pub where we concluded our activities. The streets were quiet as you might expect on a midweek winter night, and if nothing else it meant that we inconvenienced fewer passers-by with our tripods etc.
A feature in Wellington, as in many other cities is the number of grand old buildings that have been repurposed. On the corner of Cuba and Vivian, the former National Bank of New Zealand is now a popular and very upmarket restaurant called Logan Brown. Nobody went in or out while I was making a slow exposure on the corner.
Back on Taranaki Street Wharf, the floating crane Hikitia was lit with floodlights that varied between red and blue light. This image is in the blue phase. From there we adjourned to the pub for refreshments and comparison of our various captures.
Something else tomorrow.
