Richard O’Brien and Riff Raff 29 November 2011

Richard O'Brien and Riff Raff 29 November 2011

This is a pleasant surprise. Richard O’Brien Rocky Horror Show creator at the Riff Raff statue, erected in his honour in Hamilton CBD, today, Tuesday the 29th of November 2011. Richard is attending a photo op to announce his New Zealand citizenship (to be acknowledged formally in December)  and to publicise a one off 70th birthday celebration concert at Founders Theatre It’s Party Time with Richard O’Brien on the 17th of March 2012  in support of Starship Foundation. Cool.

Hamilton New Zealand CBD November 2011

Carparking availability sign Victoria Street Hamilton

From Leamington to Kaipaki, Mystery Creek (Mellow Road is closed – for resurfacing it would appear) to Rukuhia and across the Waikato River at Narrows Bridge into Tamahere and a coffee at Punnett Cafe, on Newell Road, right in the middle of the strawberry harvest. Into the southern end of Victoria Street Hamilton (after the morning rush) and a free 120 minute parking space! Trees at the Meteor (you may like to change the URL of your landing page) is not on until the 13th of December – (note to self: do your research).

The old pool appears operational though closed for swimming this Tuesday morning – love the blue. The Hamilton Club on Grantham Street is a busy archaeological dig with the old building sitting at the southern end of the site awaiting repositioning (I think this is called The Grantham Project). Garden Place and the Christmas Tree under construction – Garden Place even after a recent serious makeover looks bereft – a little lacking. As I have been saying, over the past couple of years, Hamilton CBD is a strange land to me – a place I visited daily until late 2003 – it is far prettier than it used to be but seems far sparcer of people.

North along Victoria and London where I say hi to Murray and Tony at London Street Cafe (I think). Mainly Chairs in Barton Street where I overhear a snippet of most glorious Walter Mitty proportions (from a customer).

Back through Centreplace to Artifice in Collingwood Street – cute – a bit retro twee but cool decorative art all the same – multi media as well.

Then an in the right place and at the right time moment I am introduced to Richard O’Brien by Mark Servian at Riff Raff Statue.

Hamilton New Zealand Wednesday 5 October 2011 5

Te Whare Taonga O Waikato curatorial staff, Victoria Street, Hamilton, Waikato, New Zealand.

Photos and videos taken today, Wednesday the 5th of October 2011, during a short trip to Hamilton: Steele Park, Grey Street, Bridge Street (Waikato River), Museum (Victoria Street), Garden Place, Ward Street, Centre Place, Barton Street, Casabella Lane. Not quite a decade ago (2003) and in the decade prior (1993-2003) this is a journey I made most week days (in whole or in part) – the Steele Park, Grey Street, Bridge Street walk less often; parking on the western (city) side of the Waikato River in Grantham Street. Overriding impression; eerily quiet streets and empty eateries (OK mid morning mid week!) – though moving in an easterly direction from Garden Place things become a tad more city like.

Church building, Victoria Street, Hamilton, New Zealand

St Peter's Cathedral building, Victoria Street Hamilton New Zealand

From the non series – Views I am very familiar with but see rarely this days. I love this – I think the building is part of St Peter’s Cathedral – well, it is right beside it – the path to the left leads up to the cathedral, in southern Victoria Street, Hamilton, New Zealand on the edge of Hamilton’s CBD.
