Photos taken during my recent visit to New Zealand. Wellington is the national capital and second largest city to Aukland.
All taken with either a99 or a77ii, using CZ24-70mm Vario-Sonnar, CZ16-35mm Vario-Sonnar or SAL70200G. EXIF embedded.
Will post in series to keep each segment down to a manageable size.

C&C most welcome, as usual.

1. Firstly some of the typical weatherboard houses built on the hills overlooking the harbour. The flexible timber structure is well suited to resist earthquakes and tremors.

18. Until 2004 the highest court of appeal in New Zealand had been the Privy Council in the United Kingdom. The chamber of this Supreme Court was designed to symbolise the pine cone of the native Kauri tree, and is very open to public view.

22. New Zealand was the first country in the world to extend voting rights to women in 1893, and the green pedestrian lights in the government precinct pay tribute to Kate Sheppard, the suffragette who led the campaign.

23. The old Government Buildings look like they are built of solid masonry but are in fact built of Kauri timber, detailed and carved to look like stone.
They are now the Law Faculty of the Wellington University.
