This was the old Mornington Post Office in days gone by. As you can can see it is now a classic Dunedin heritage building fully restored and in fine shape once again.

In Full Bloom


In Full Bloom, originally uploaded by _setev.

The neighbours lilies have very kindly appeared in our front yard again this year. Every year they appear from underneath the fence and produce these spectacular flowers and stems.

They have been photographed before of course but this time I thought they would be an ideal subject for a different lens and camera combination. Extra processing was done with the picnik online tools

Ship on a Slip


Ship on a Slip, originally uploaded by _setev.

This disused ship has been around a long time. It was originally used to dredge the harbour channels but that was a long time ago.

Right now Ithink it is being preserved for a maritime museum.

Whatever is happening to her they seem to be spending a lot of time and money keeping her seaworthy for some future use.

Anyway I thought it was an ideal subject for my new camera at the time!

Spring is here once more and what a pleasure it is to leave the winter months behind for another year.

A Spring Evening at the Station

With the camera in tow and time on my hand I made the most of the early evening sunset which provided a radiant splash of colour at the Railway Station. Spring has been good this year with many pleasant mornings and afternoons like this one.

Some additional post processing has been done using flickrs picnik online photo editor. I think it has some useful features such as the vignetting function.

Looking north from the southern end of the Railway Station.

This view of the grounds outside the Railway Station is unusual in that there are no people! Normally it is swarming with dozens of visitors and tourists each day. So I took the rare opportunity to get a 'clean shot' in good light.

Taken with a Sony f828 using nighshot mode and an IR filter. Getting the exposure just right is hit and miss in this mode and Photoshop can't save a badly exposed picture either.
