Photo Walk around the Basin Reserve with the Wellington Photography Meetup Group, 22nd November 2017
Well we struck the weather - and the light - right again. Also, there were quite a few new people on this Meetup, which is great. If you're interested in joining, it's free - just sign in to Meetup and come join us.
Thanks again to Wellington Photographic Supplies, and co-hosts for this evening's meetup, Alastair McAra, and Richard Young of NZ Photography Workshops
Although this seemed like a less-scenic walk than the War Memorial, or the Wellington Waterfront (which we'll be doing next time, on Wednesday 13th December), the hard, clear and direct sunlight made the mundane photogenic.
For me, this area is an old stomping ground, as when I was studying photography at Wellington Polytechnic in 1987, we were based in a building in Rugby St for the year. The building is no longer there, and the area has changed considerably. It looks as if it's in a constant state of renewal, for that matter, which to my eyes makes for some interesting photography. Here are some of my pics.
