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

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.
