Cambridge Autumn Festival 2010 – Nairobi Trio

The Nairobi Trio perform before an enthusiastic audience at St Andrews Parish Hall, Cambridge, New Zealand this evening, Thursday, the 29th of April 2010. Masterful and thoroughly entertaining. Very deliberately shot from a static POV (Canon G10) to soak up the atmosphere and the music of course. BTW the odd flashes of light in the windows left and right is traffic passing by on SH1, Hamilton Road – just beyond the hall. Very lo-fi but you get the picture. [06:38]

St Andrews Anglican Church Cambridge NZ

St Andrews’ Auckland Anniversary Day market day is an annual affair. Today it has many visitors as right along side SH1 traffic crawls home from the long weekend. One attraction is the church itself. As I sit still in a pew for five minutes taking this photograph I am intrigued by the comments of those seeing the inside of the church for the first time – I have known it all my life.

Athletic Park Cambridge New Zealand

A reader reminds me that athletics meetings were held on Victoria Square – formerly known as the Government Acre – before the move to Athletic Park on the Greenbelt at the Hamilton Road (SH1) Vogal Street corner. As I recall running at least the one meeting on the square the move must have happened around 1960 when I was intermediate / middle school age – please correct me if I am wrong. Athletic Park is on the left as you slow for the 50k sign travelling into Cambridge from the north west on the Hamilton Cambridge road.
