I haven't been to Wellington since I was a child, looks like it has changed a lot. I would not have expected to see this in nz, looks like an overseas image. Lets hope in the rebuild of christchurchs central city we can make it look architecturally as modern as this, if the authorities and citizens can stop bickering over it and just get on with it. A fantastic image Dale. #1511882

Barbara and Lindley, thanks, you are both so kind. Still have about 15 days of pix from NZ to post on my blog, but am getting sidetracked with other shoots that I've been on.

Just returned an hour ago from four days in Arizona at an off road race. Pix to appear soon. :o) #10552374
