Fright Night

A local home-owner has done well for the big night - I think they can expect a few trick or treaters tonight.
I 'treated' this shot with the very appropriate filter called So Emo.

Precioussss Internet

Blatant Tolkienism in the title at a time of National joy that The Hobbit movies are to be filmed in NZ (well, lots of happy peeps in Miramar, anyway!).
So, our family of 5 has been without broadband for 24hrs now and are all feeling rather disconnected. Have got a 'thin' lifeline in the iPhone's 3G data reception... but it just ain't the same.
Please Mr Telecom Man put the plug back in!
By the way, how are we supposed to know if our service has been restored...? Oh, yeah, try resetting the modem every 10 mins... sigh...

Boy in the Bubble

He seemed happy enough - trapped inside his own little world. I felt that I should have smashed the shell and let him out, but he was doing his cleaning, so I just left him to it.
I think this is one of those action/attractions that keeps people entertained along the waterfront - hire the bubble and 'walk' on the water of the nearby lagoon.

I found this view outside Welly's new hospital and gave it a bit of the Canera+ treatment. The safety dots on the footpath almost look like someone has laid out some pills in the late-afternoon light.

Hot Wheels

This little beauty was parked near a Rolls Royce at The Chocolate Fish recently - I'm not sure which car I preferred....
This shot has been tweaked in the Camera+ app.
