exploring the coastline.

While I was in Wellington, I made a point of walking the coastline as much as possible. I must have looked like some sort of hippie or something with my tee shirt tied around my head and my jeans rolled up to the knee. Although, most Kiwis don’t shower, shave, or wear deodorant at all so I probably seemed completely natural. In fact, quite a few of them, along some of the more remote areas of the coast, weren’t even wearing pants, so yea, I didn’t take it that far…

Oh, I kid the Kiwis, lol. I’m fairly sure they shower every once and a while. 😉 (you know I love you guys)

Check out some more HDR Photos of Wellington, New Zealand (everyone is wearing pants. I promise).
