I know there has been a lot of chat about the new Aotea Square, but I for one LOVE IT!
There has been real 'wheel friendly' thought gone into it. Some bright spark has realised that people with wheels ARE city life.
So ok, these last two pictures are not exactly wheels but they are close ... in a roundish sort of way
Scooters ... and something else you don't often see in the city ... children!
More small people in pushchairs ... and very tall people!
I really like the symmetry in this picture
Aotea Square has almost been designed for this kind off thing!
That was fun ... let's do it again!!
Of course, this strange concept of 'ordinary people having fun in the city', not vomiting or racing cars with ear-shattering acoustics, is a bit of a concern for the powers that be ... I'm not sure whether these policemen have got out of there cars (shock horror!!) to watch this scene out of puzzlement, disbelief, simple curiosity, or whether they really think that unfettered wheel activity is a serious threat!
Cool dudes always have girls trailing around after them
This shot is quite 'European' I feel
Urban city cool
This guy was very cool - but even more so because there was a police car sat at the lights just out of shot - he leisurely took an illegal turn into Queen street across the bow of the police car so that they could admire his non-regulation flat cap ... it was beautiful!
I little while ago I was searching for an icon appropriate for an urban transport bicyclist ... I discovered ZILCH! There were plenty of hunched over 'sporty' type icons but nothing for the 'just getting about' type of cyclist.
So with no.8 wire Kiwi ingenuity, I set to and created something.
Just recently, I was very pleased to hear that my logo is going to be used for the new 'Great Urban Rides' signage. The Ponsonby signs will probably be going up over the next month, so that will definitely require a glass of bubbles at a watering hole within sight of one of 'my' signs!
