Manhattan by slow photography

Tabitha and I are heading over to New York for 3 weeks, to cycle, the hang out, to look at art and relax. I am leaving all the digital stuff behind, and taking, as I always do when I head overseas, my one and only film camera - a 1950's Leica M2. It gives really magical & mystical shots, if random shots, as you can see here with images from France.

Interiors...TVNZ as you've never seen.

The new fit-out for TVNZ is something else. It's Prince's Batman. Dark. Colour. Gotham City. I love it! Not everyone's is Very Dark, but when you get up to the other floors, the open plan staff quarters, with amazing outlooks of the city, and fantastic concrete on wood design, really is just...Wow. I'm very impressed. A long time coming, as the former reincarnation was a cold shithole.

Lover of Vintage...Paula

'The thing I love about vintage' says Paula, 'is that it has a provenance, a history.' In fact Paula likes vintage styling so much that she is slowly replacing every modern piece in her wardrobe to reflect her love of the vintage aesthetic.

Daisy..Victoria Street

Daisy makes her own jewellery.." but not for sale, just for me." What a pity! The ball and string piece is pretty cool.

I can't profess to be huge fan of tattoos, have none myself, and no intention of getting any...but I DO like Mark's facial tatts.

Yinxing is from China. I asked where he got his clothes and shoes from. "China", says Yinxing. Do you like any New Zealand clothes, I ask.  "No, I buy my clothes from China. Far greater variety." No doubt. Like his coat...!

L.A Woman...K'Rd

Briana has arrived in New Zealand for work a couple of months ago. She was saying that Downtown LA - once somewhat a no-go zone, has really revitalized over the last 3 or 4 years. She's looking forward to her short term stay in NZ.

A Modern Day Byron?

Certainly looks like it!  Reuben and I had a fantastic talk about the nature of Tertiary Learning, and whether in fact, an Arts Degree was worth the money. I suggested it was, because a degree qualification of any sort IS worth finishing, and you just build up your post Education experiences from there. Well.. that's the way I did it. Education seemed paramount to Reuben; it's just that the trade off between Student Loans, and wanting to get out there and go for it. 
PS: an Amazing green coat. couldnt buy one like that now.
