I didn't do as much tourism photography as I might have around Wellington. Many of our trips were incidental, not photosafaris, so I missed a lot of things I might have caught. It's a terribly charming place, putting me somewhat in mind of a smaller, cleaner, less urban version of San Francisco. I was struck by the beauty of the area, and by how pleasant so many of the people were.

Is just around the corner from a particular New Zealand Director's house, and he just happened to be doing his washing up as we drove past.

Yes, I squee'd like the raving fan girl I am.
