On Aro Street

I don't know why, but Saturday was a good day for impromptu portraits of weather-beaten artists. Maybe the universe was rewarding me for actually sticking to an exercise regime (which currently consists of walking down the hill and back up again 5 out of 7 days a week).

This guy owns a tiny hole-in-the-wall gallery on Aro Street, which is a cold, damp valley full of slightly bohemian shops and ageing weatherboard cottages. He is also an artist and sometimes does set painting for Weta. He did tell me about a gallery specializing in photography, somewhere upstairs on Courtney Place, near the Burger King apparently. I think I'll have to go find it.

Considering the steepness of the hills in your fair city, that's a pretty good exercise program!

At first glance, this fellow looks like a monk at some urban mission.

Yeah, that's what my legs are telling me. If I ever get really enthusiastic I'll start biking them.

He does look rather monastic, now you come to mention it. I think it might be the combination of white painted brick wall and bald patch.

The second one is great. You're so brave to take portraits of strangers!

I was kinda inspired to take a chance or two by this. Pays off, I tell ya.
