My afternoon was spent in Mt Cook.
No, not the mountain in the Southern Alps, but the Wellington suburb of the same name. I began on Tasman Street, and from a side road, looked across a piece of recently cleared land towards the Basin Reserve on the right, and the National Carillon on the left. The strange lattice structure in the Basin Reserve is part of the staging for an act by someone called Robbie Williams.
Mt Cook has something of a Bohemian reputation with a very large number of student flats, and the Wellington campus of Massey University nearby. The houses are mostly weary from a century or more of continuous occupation. Many are in severe need of paint. There are narrow gaps between the house that provide glimpses down towards Adelaide Road.
Some of the quiet side roads have neatly restored villas, painted fences and tidy gardens.
It was camera club night and knowing that there were only six images in the camera, I went out after the session ended and looked for some night subjects. I’ve done it many times before, but I find still water and moored boats irresistible.
That will do for now.
