Rock & Roll

The sound that could be heard all over Wellington was hard core, old
school ROCK. Yes, indeed, AC~DC are in town!

Outage outrage

So the Telecom XT 3G network decides to throw it's second wobbly in 2
months... just after I finally decide to swap my phone service to it!
(and, no I can't just swap to another network, thanks)

This way up?!

Yes, I had been hanging out at Mac's Brewery for a while, and yes, the
iPhone's accelerometer can be fooled into not knowing which way is up,
but these lamps are actually stuck on the ceiling of the pub (note the
fringes on the shades).

Doctor in the house?

Back in my day they were black, or maybe ox blood....but lately the
colour/pattern variations on Doc Martens seems infinite. Of course
some people also like to wear different colours on each foot. I'm not
sure which of these feet belong to my daughter - she swaps boots with
her friend quite often.

Abandoned Treasure

This poor old iMac has either been dumped or maybe there's a homeless
person with a Twitter account living up our street...

Gone dotty

No, this isn't from a spot-generating-iPhone-app. This random pigeon
chaser is in front of the City Art Gallery that's been decorated in
keeping with the exhibition by dot-happy Yayoi Kusama.

Look Out

Having a great time downloading and trying out a few new photo apps
for the iPhone. Just been testing 'Cool fx' (shame about the name)
from the same people who put out 'Foto fx' - this shot was given some
diffusion, a 'cross-process' look & cropped.

"err, have you seen my handbag?"

Pretty good match of colours, but Stephanie didn't actually lose her
Maybe this is my first product shot done on the iPhone.

Southern Lights

Time to take down the festive lights we strung up outside the house
this year. I don't think I'd ever have the patience to do a full-on
Xmas light show on the house. Unpacking the lights and draping them
around the place is one thing, but having to carefully pack them away
into boxes again would be too much! Besides, the boxes always shrink...

Apt Warning

This sign is in one of our 'staycation' hangouts (Beach Babylon Café
on Oriental Bay).Another fave sign from a different café
"Unaccompanied children sold for medical research".
[New option this decade - posts from my blog are also going out to
Facebook and Twitter]

Seasonal Aftermath

Heavily blooming Pohutukawa trees & 130 kmh winds lead to drifts of
crimson needles through the streets.
This shot has been modified slightly with a 'glamour' filter in the
Foto FX app.

So it's not just me...

This guy's T-shirt hits a bit of a chord with me. Maybe it's the
season, but I seem to be reaching into my pocket rather often!
It's great that people with message shirts have been more than happy
to stop & pose for the iPhone. I guess it's always nice to be noticed.
