Thematic Photographic: Vehicular, Etc


I took a lot of photos in October, when I was attempting to post a photo a day, so I hunted through them for "extras" for this week's theme. The vintage Harley Davidson was on display in New Regent Street, a Spanish Mission style street of shops in the centre of Christchurch, during Heritage Week.


The tram does a regular tourist circuit around the centre of Christchurch. Seen here in front of the Old Government Buildings, now converted into the Heritage Hotel. Ironically, this wing, the old wing of the hotel, survived the earthquakes due to strengthening work in the 1990s, but the new wing is still closed due to earthquake damaged, and I believe is likely to be demolished.


Finally, this shot because in Christchurch you are never very far from heavy earth moving machinery. (One day, all the road and sewer repairs will be finished, but not just yet...)

That little girl just can't wait until she's old enough to drive the Harley.

There's such vibrancy in all of these, Catherine. I especially love the background on the Heritage Hotel. Old outlived new...the universe sure has a funny way of expressing itself.

I can almost feel the life in the first shot: Kids at play...priceless!
