Free time during a quick visit to Auckland for work allowed me to do a little sight seeing, thankfully the heavy rain dissipated and I had a perfect day for walking around the city. Rather than lug my DSLR to New Zealand (the weather was predicted to be miserable the entire time) I made use of the Retro Camera app on my iphone and a little point and shoot camera. These photos are all taken with an iphone 3 and the ‘polaroid’ function on Retro Camera, the result reminds me of all the old photos that my Mum took when we went on family holidays. I’ll share the other photos and details about my short stay later, my happy snaps of the City of Sails will have to do for now.

    Makes me homesick, especially Okahu Bay Pier opposite Kelly Tarltons!

      So that is what it is called, I couldn’t hear the commentary on the boat. Thanks for dropping by 🙂

    Great photos and story! And I always notice when you include a picture of gelato… 🙂

      My motto is that if there is gelato, then I must find it and try it 🙂

    You reminded me of ‘ginger kisses’! I haven’t had one in ages…. wonder if they make them in the UK?

    Wonderful photos, by the way – going to see if I can download that app (or something similar) 🙂

      Hope you can find ginger kisses, the ginger crunch slice I tried was also awesome 🙂
