Yeah, it's really nice to go and photograph in somewhere like Royal Park. When there aren't any trams, it's nice and peaceful, and you can just kick back and enjoy being outdoors. Though I tend to avoid doing anything like reading, since trams can be stunningly silent and creep up on you, so I'm always on the look-out.

Though the way development is encroaching on Royal Park, I'm not sure if it will stay the way it is for much longer.

Nice action shot, Ian! Tram/tree pics looking good, too... I saw some very cool old trees in Jells park on Monday.

Oooh, nice!

Also, I like using the big screen. One day when I'm in the car with someone, I'd like to get in front of a tram and photograph it in the rear-view/side mirrors.

Here is what i went out to photograph, Boeing 777-300ER of Singapore Airlines operating as Singapore 285 from Singapore. One of the most attractive planes out there.

Here's B2 2127 in the trees, crossing the pedestrian crossing. This has got to be one of my favourite places to photograph trams, and I wish the W class still ran here (up until 1998, they ran services to the Zoo).

Noes! Boo to encroachment.
I love parks, the little islands of sanity in the middle of suburbia/the city.

That sounds like a cool idea. I liked using the big screen but definitely prefer using it when there is stadium context around it, so it isn't the only thing in shot and that it's pretty clear as to what it is.

Neat.

I'm sure you also appreciate the variety, rather than just more of Air New Zealand and the other domestic carriers.

I consider this as perhaps my best photo ever, to date.

The part of the park between the Children's Hospital and the route 55 on Flemington Road is currently under construction. It was nice parkland, but now it's a big hole in the ground with foundation work being undertaken. I think it's part of the hospital expansion works, though, so I'm not too pissed about it. If it were commercial development, I'd be really bloody unhappy.
