Wellington Waterfront Footbridge and Sculpture

There are three parts to this image and it was an interesting challenge to try and compose this photograph to incorporate all three. The white sculpture on the right is the Albatross sculpture or fountain. I wanted to include footbridge behind and in the far distance Saint Gerard’s Church and Monastery on the Mount Victoria hillside.

The fountain in the foreground is one of many works of art on the Wellington waterfront. This was another long exposure photograph of 20 seconds at early evening. The bridge doesn’t always have these bright strip lights but this was captured during the annual two week LUX festival. You can see the blur of a couple of people walking across the bridge. The bridge and sculpture are only a few metres apart but the Monastery in the background is much further away.
