New Plymouth Costal Track – in half a film

0I mentioned over Christmas at New Plymouth┬áthat I had brought along an old disposable camera as well as my Sony. Simple, point and shoot with a plastic lens and low cost 35mm colour film. Well, the developing/scans came back. Amazingly all exposures were fine – not great, but thats the lo mo plastic lens way.

Anyway, here is a bit of a visual walk of the coastal track from the mouth of the Waiwhakaiho river, to the┬áParitutu Rock. The track itself extends beyond the river, but I actually stated half way, walked to the river and then back tracked to the rock – maybe next time I will try and get dropped off at one end or the other rather than the middle! For a bit of an indication of the distance, in the first image you can just see the rock in the far right…at a very poor horizon angle… (or the middle of the second shot)

_DSC8293Its been a long weekend here in Auckland New Zealand with the celebration of ‘Auckland Anniversary’. In good form the weather has been fantastic, and I managed to get out several times and shoot some images. One such outing,I was invited to a local car dealership to take some social images of their big car giveaway. Here are a few of the shots I personally liked from the bunch as I meandered through the crowds that attended.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

This weekend marked the 21st Hotrod and Classic Car show in Kumeu. One could spend all weekend wandering through the isles of vehicles and things going on. We only had a few hours. Below is a very small selection of the variety on show. All shot on my Olympus E-500.

View from Paritutu Rock

vfa1The previous time we headed to New Plymouth, I made it half way up Paritutu Rock. Equipped with jandals (flip flops to some) and poor choice of climbing clothes I didn’t feel safe enough to navigate the raw rock and chain rope up to the summit. This time, aside from some fatigue of getting to the rock from the other end of the city, I ventured to the top and too some shots.

As well as my Sony, I had an old disposable camera that had been sitting in a drawer. I used that to document my travels along the coastal walkway – when I get that developed I will share some scans.
