New Zealand - May 2015
I took quite a lot of pictures while I was in New Zealand and I shared them over the course of a few months, I'm sharing a few of my personal favourites from the trip A number of these have never been published before. Aren't you lucky?!?
I have no idea where this guy came from but he took a real shine to me and ran up and down the beach desperate for me to play with him. The exasperated looking woman, is a friend of the dogs owner her dog can be seen galloping up from behind.
Each year, Napier hosts a festival in honour of the Art Decor style. I guess its similar to the goodwood revival, people dress up, drive vintage cars and dance like flappers 'til the wee small hours. The climate being quite pleasant in february most of it takes place out doors.
I took this as I was preparing mentally to "walk" the bridge. You start underneath, weaving from side to side along the metal gridworkhat's used by the maintenance men before climbing up to the top of the central span's box girders on teh far side of the bridge. Then while standing above teh roraing traffic everyone poses for photgraphs before climbing back down near side and once again underneath and all the way back. hilertaing is one word.... scary is another!
