WPC Challenge:Transmogrify Reflections in Wellington

dsc_016601x

Good morning from another glorious spring day here in Hastings.

This week   has introduced us to a new word.  I had to copy and paste it just to make sure that the spelling was correct.

Transmogrify:

“to change in appearance or form, especially strangely or grotesquely; transform.”

So I had a bit of a think about this word and what photos to use.  Then I remembered the wonderful reflections of the buildings in the modern glass buildings in Wellington.  Last time I was in Wellington I used a wide angled lens.  This time I used the zoom lens to focus on the details of the reflections.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Native New Zealand Wildlife Through Windows

North Island Kokako

Good morning from another warm sunny spring day here in Hastings.  For this week’s challenge hosted by Cee I decided to show some of the wildlife seen through windows at Zealandia.  First up is actually a stuffed bird – the native Kokako which is a protected species.

Another vulnerable New Zealand native – the Tuatara – also called the living fossil as they are not part of the reptiles and amphibian species – they are thought to be descended from the dinosaurs or some other species that had lived then.

Ok, this would have been better in colour, considering it’s name.  But another vulnerable species.

All these photos were taken through windows of enclosures which is hopefully not the only way we can see these endangered species in the future.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Old and New Buildings in Wellington

dsc_046101x

Good morning from a very sunny day here in Hastings.

Last Saturday I wandered around Lambton Quay and the Parliament buildings.  Of all the times I have visited Wellington I had never being around our Parliament buildings. The weather was perfect as you can see so I had a ball.

First up I love the contrast between the old Turnball House, the birthplace of our national library nestled among the modern buildings.

And the older Parliament House built in 1918, but never really completed.
