Cuba Street

Cuba Street in Wellington is pretty Iconic. Cuba Street is where the cool people go, the bearded hipsters, the fashionable in mind and spirit. The wannabe’s and the once were. The right on, right now and the faded jadeds. The tattooed ladies and the skater boys. Cuba Street is a place of street food, expensive food and retro shopping. Vinyl records and vinyl furniture, probably. Quirky things on the street and in the shops. Cuba Street is colourful. I decided to spend a morning taking photos in Cuba Street. This is the work of one hour, one morning. This Sunday Morning in March.

There are many photos and (almost) no captions. Sometimes images speak for themselves.Cuba crossingCuba flamingoCuba CosmicCuba Corner graffitiCuba BurgerCuba BUBCuba BristolCuba Bristol walkCuba bookshopCuba blurred strollCuba 178 CubaCuba barbers at workCuba barbersCuba fixCuba FidelsCuba Fidels super cutsCuba EspressoholicCuba emporiumCuba Ekim BurgerCuba Dog graffitiCuba daytime moonCuba Cuba Bistro

Berhampore Bus stop
OK, this isn’t in Cuba Street. This is Berhampore. But it’s very colourful. 

Back In The Capital

We had a big earthquake recently. Bigger in the South than it was in the North, but big none the less. There are many buildings in Wellington still closed, cordoned off and some to be demolished. Big buildings. We also had a Tsunami warning. So I thought I’d go and take some photos of the capital city before it gets destroyed in the next big earthquake and washed away in the following Tsunami. You know, for the archives. I took an eclectic mix of photos, not the stuff people usually photograph in Wellington. It is quite a diverse, colourful and interesting place. See? Due to the number of photos, I’ve gone for the ’tiled mosaic look. Welcome to Wellington.
