A Clear Cool Stroll

Walk1As the rain falls down heavily today, I have a sort through some images shot yesterday. Typically usual of New Zealand this time of year, yesterday was fine and sunny (but chilly in the shade and quite windy), today is bucketing down.

Images shot between Mission Bay and Saint Helliers, two seaside suburbs just out from Aucklands CBD.

New Plymouth Costal Track – in half a film

0I mentioned over Christmas at New Plymouth that 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 Paritutu 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)

Kumeu Classic Car and Hotrod Show

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.

Silo Vintage Market and Car Meet

R0113167

 

Armed with my Ricoh GRD, We had a quick look around the Silo Vintage Market and Classic Car meet this afternoon. Lots of retro themed stores, classic music, tons of people in vintage attire, and some old cars. A nice little visit.

Here are some more snaps from my walkabout

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.
