New Brighton Pier

It’s been a while since I went to New Brighton, Christchurch. It must have been last year around April after the Feb quake. When I went there, some of the streets were still flooded with water due to liquefaction. Now, a year and half later, those streets have been filled with gravels, but no one lived there anymore. Rows and rows of empty houses.

It used to be lively place, with a lot of people going to the beach, there are still beach goers but not as many as before.

I went yesterday for a photo outing with a couple of the guys, and got a few shots that looks like a keeper.

Towards the light
D700 with 17-35mm f/4

Brought along my Tokina 17-35mm f/4, but unfortunately, couldn’t get a lot of keepers with that one. It’s pretty difficult with a clear sky and not a lot of foregrounds subject. The above was shot at 35mm.

Here’s one with the 50mm f/1.8D, a good solid glass. A must for any photographers.
