European vacation

I wish! But this little scene could possibly be down an alleyway in
France, instead of in the heart of urban New Zealand.
The colours were given a bit of a kick with 'Lolo' in the CameraBag app.

Change in the weather

After a stormy night in Wellington the clouds began to part for a fine
& sunny day. Unfortunately it was still blowing a gale - leading to
one of the roughest take-offs from Welly airport that I've endured.

Religous experience

Getting a cool shot on the iPhone is similar to a religous experience.
This 'moment' was from a modern church building where I was helping
set up for a (non-religous) lecture. They had some very old stained
glass windows that had been transplanted into the building which I
tried out a recently acquired edge app called 'Edwin' on.

Err, what's 'develop'??

Yeah, OK, we're talking old skool - what we used to with film, back in
the day....and what some people still do today. Sean here had a bag
with him that contained no less than 3 film cameras! But he did have
an iPhone in his pocket. Legend.

Saturday gridlock

A beautiful weekend morning and Wellington sportspeople are once again
jumping in cars to rush across town so they can kick, pass, throw, or
hit balls. We're right at the end of the winter sports season now so
there'll be some extra urgency for those competing in their grade
Yep, we made it in time for kickoff, thanks.

Street philosophy

Clever bit of graffiti on Taranaki Street - I guess it's a reference
to whoever has been covering over the past graffiti with grey paint.

Olde worlde

A partially-completed room set in the studio for a shoot I worked on
yesterday. It's always a lot of fun hunting down elements to help
evoke a certain mood & this one was a bit of a family affair - some
hunting & style decisions from No. 1 daughter & the lamp was courtesy
of my mother's lounge.

Point of focus

There are a few retailers around town who have an old Vespa parked out
front to help them get noticed. To get the scooter noticed in this
shot I used the Tilt Shift and Camera Bag apps on the iPhone.

Keep Out

I think that's the message conveyed by the gate stopping access to
this alley. I shot another image with more detail in the walls of the
alley, but the more moody version seemed appropriate.

Captain Underpants

I found this piece of graffiti near upper Willis St & liked this
detail from the larger mural. I've got quite a collection of 'street
art' from over the years and have had a couple of cafe
exhibitions....maybe an iPhone-inspired exhibition is a possibility...

Has Spring Really Sprung?

This is the second one of these babies to pop into the sunshine on our
patch of Miramar. Yet another chance to test the macro ability of the
3GS and talk about the weather to a global audience...are you
listening in Poland?

Harbour Capital

Went for a cruise on the scooter 'round the bays, and found this view
of the Capital that is not often seen. The cabbage trees, flax, water
& boat could be from somewhere around the Corromandal....but the
houses on the hills are all Wellington!
No effects used on this shot.

Coffee and cameras

When a fine looking coffee arrives in front of me it's hard to resist
tapping the camera icon. Another visit to Mojo & another test of the
close-focus of the 3GS (plus some retouching with PhotoFX).
