Me? Whatever! Do I care? No!
After a week of rain and groom, the sun finally shone on Wellington as if to welcome the thousands of visitors from all over the world! So I was in town this afternoon too, to take in the quarter final atmosphere :)
It only took me 10 minutes to drive from my house (in Karori) to the CBD, then in another 5 minutes I have park my VRX in Courtenay Central!
Did I tell you I love Wellington?
I had with me my 3 year old Nikon D300 with the 25 year old 80-200 f4 manual zoom, the Canon G12 came along as backup.
|This is what I saw when I came out of Courtenay Central, the whole
Courtenay Place has been blocked off from traffic since Friday night.|
|Looking to my right, outside Coutenay Central; towards the CBD. It is not often you can get a shot (G12) of Courtney Place like this!|
|Further down from Courtenay Place, the ever busy Taranaki Street look strangely deserted!|
|Who are they supporting? Kentucky Fried Chicken?|
|Are these South Africa supporters? You can see how clueless I am about rugby!|
|Believe me, that bum is not real! Ha ha ha...|
|Notice the "quality" natural light here, it is strong but not overly harsh to wash out the details. Picture like this reconfirm how good this 25 year old zoom is!|
|This is a 200% crop from the same photo above. What a lens! If you can get it in focus, that is; the D300's focusing screen don't make it easier!!|
|No prize for telling who he is supporting!|
|Even little baby are not spared from this rugby craze!|
