Arrowtown

Buckingham Street is Arrowtown’s main shopping street. This was taken on my second  visit to the historic gold mining town just a few miles from Queenstown. Sadly,  this street is often lined with traffic and cars are allowed to drive up it (only  one way though thankfully). This makes photographing it without including cars  very difficult. I knew to visit early to avoid some of the traffic and tourists so  was able to capture this photograph. Visiting Arrowtown is like stepping into the  Wild West. If I Photoshopped out the yellow lines on the road and covered the image  to black and white I think most people would think this to be an American town  rather than somewhere in the South Island of New Zealand!
