Location, location

Great spot for a time-lapse sequence - views of Wellington CBD, the harbour and Lower Hutt. Now, to the editing suite...

Spot news

Driving through the suburb of Kilbirnie a couple of nights ago I was drawn to the flashing lights of 5 fire appliances. There was a small fire in some sheds behind the shops which didn't seem to take too long to put out.
Yet another occasion when I was out with only one camera... the iPhone. The 3GS doesn't handle low light conditions too well - perhaps the iPhone 5 will be a worthwhile investment for the citizen reporters out there...?

Rain forest

Well, rain garden really.... but some of the weeds are rather forest-like.
This shot was taken after a downpour and then given the 'blue tone' treatment with the app Film LAB.

New clique?

I noticed this sticker on a car recently and wondered about the need to be 'categorised'. I guess we all like hanging out with like-minded people, but a lot of people fall into many different groups... how many bumper stickers could we all have?

Ash Wednesday

Ok, I'm not actually sure if the Chilean volcano ash cloud is still hanging around, but last night's sunset seemed a little more colourful than we usually get at this time of the year.
No apps were used for this image, although I shot some different exposure settings by tapping on different areas of the screen to bias the exposure from light to dark.
