Work treated us to a day out of the office to kick back and relax. We went to the Auckland Zoo. Naturally, I took some shots.
A Clear Cool Stroll
As 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.
Picnic Lunch at Pakiri
Its 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.
View from Paritutu Rock
The 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.
