When I was young this doorway was the entrance to the Cambridge Public Library. It is now the Victoria Street entrance to the Cambridge Information Centre. We are on the north western corner of the Cambridge Town Hall (Victoria and Queen (SH1) Streets) which tomorrow celebrates it’s centenary with a ribbon cutting at 3PM and a concert at 7.

A welcome return / addition to Victoria Street / Cambridge CBD – a small supermarket. Brothers Ashok & Dinesh Patel have opened Cambridge Mini Mart at 73B Victoria Street. There is history here; Hayden Murray’s Four Square – and more. I will attempt to get the details straight and add them. Ashok bought the Thornton Road diary in 2003 and Hautapu Country Store in 2005.

Friday Night Shoppers Gala & Street Performers. There is a disconnect here. Much anticipation from retailers and punters – and not a few families with youngsters in tow – in town to enjoy the festivities. As I move about with camera and tripod – no doubt looking somewhat official – folk approach asking what’s happening. I have to admit I don’t know. The lone stiltwalker pair provide momentary fun. The ‘throng’ drifts away quickly – home or to the dancing at the town hall – an opportunity lost. Here Mai and her niece wait patiently for customers at the Lunch Box.

Ian Dunn is laying out stall sites for Sunday’s The Main Street Carnival in Victoria Street Cambridge, this afternoon, Friday the 24th of April 2009. The Main Street Carnival is one of the last events of the 2009 Cambridge Autumn Festval. Some ninety vendors are booked with Victoria Street closed to traffic. A veteran of many a market both as organiser and vendor (Granny Dunn) Ian tells me that this event will be unique in layout and scale. Let’s hope the weather is kind.

Egypt was a source of boundless amazement, sly humour and some disgust to the New Zealanders, an experience which left its mark, both on our language — ‘taking a shufti’ — and more tangibly, the Maadi Rowing Cup. more
Celebrated this Sunday afternoon in Cambridge at Deli on the Corner in Victoria Street – the exhibition opening of dIGITAL EYEs – the work of six Cambridge photographers. Characterful and colourful the Deli on the Corner café – one of Cambridge’s most popular – is home to much visual delight. Above photographer and Cambridge Edition editor Ann Huston – one of the six – with her work – “Flying High” – a photograph taken during Armistice in Cambridge last year. Ann tells me the plane is a Pitts S2S Special piloted by Noel Cruse.
The Canon G10 has it’s detractors yet is a joy to use. This cropped portion of the image below – actually the image taken directly afterwards from the same postion/POV – gives an idea of its potential. A photographer’s camera they say. On the NZ market somewhere in the $900.00 range. BTW, I love the look and feel of it.
Set the little man walking at Google Maps NZ. Pity about the atmospheric / technical conditions when this was recorded. Fun none the less. Take a little tour of Cambridge CBD if you have some time to spare..
It’s a pity the young folk – and there are dozens and dozens of them – who put so much energy into the parade are unable, because of their participation, to enjoy the parade as a whole. A post parade display on Victoria Square is an idea – so all can fully enjoy the atmosphere.
Jason and I dashed about last night photographing some of the Christmas lights. Well Jason photographed the lights while I photographed Jason in action. Lots of fun. A full gallery of the day is here
