Looks good....

....and good for you. A great mix of colours and textures in the wok.

Twilight @ speed

So, another lovely evening in the Capital and this time I'm in the
passenger seat (safer that way). This gives a good example of the
effect of the iPhone's 'rolling shutter' - the image at the top of the
frame is recorded before the image at the bottom. As the car was
moving the pole appears to be leaning - more than the 'light tower'
'cos it's closer to us.

Last Stop

With a bit of care & a steady hand the iPhone even manages a night
shot at a bus shelter. It seems that most of these wayward shopping
trollies make their way back home eventually.

The Needle Knows

While driving in to the studio this morning the Zephyrometer (the
pointy orange thing) was swinging wildly in some major gusts of wind.
I didn't manage to catch it at full tilt, but we had quite an exciting
wee storm blow through town. (Yes, multitasking at the wheel again!)

iPhones a go-go

At one stage today in a boardroom we were shooting in, there were 4
iPhone users. During our breaks it was all fingers to the virtual
keyboards to keep up with texts, email, Twitter & Facebook.

Wellytown Icons

These totems have become quite symbolic of artsy-crafty Wellington,
altho' the artist who has created these designs also has them in other
cities. Despite the recession, it's good to see some building going on. 
This shot was softened and vignetted with Photo fx.

A couple of tarts...

...and a couple of coffees (mochachino & a latte) . Given an "8mm film look" via the Photo fx
application. All yummy stuff.

Random act of kindness

Someone who had as much use as they could from their bus day pass, has
kindly left it under this rock on a bus-stop seat. A friend of mine
was glad to uplift the pass for another few hours of bus travel. Nice.

Wrong, wrong, wrong

As I suspected, the previous weather 'prediction' was (fortunately)
well off track. The "killer flu" predictions also seem (fortunately)
to be overly pesimistic. Gotta love a good media beat up.
