Oamau pier & Penguins

We rented a flat via Air B&B for our one night in Oamaru, a pretty town on the NZ East Coast which happens to be the presumably self-proclaimed ‘Steampunk Capital of the World’.

I love Steampunk, the delightful mixture of Victorian technology with sci-fi, creating ray guns covered in brass tubes, astronauts wearing flying googles and steam trains powered by gas cylinders.

But that’s tomorrow, we arrived after Steampunk HQ was closed, so we ended up enjoying a very long twilight on the old industrial pier, waiting for the Blue Penguins to emerge from the ocean to climb into their little houses built be the locals.

They showed up after dark, which was a challenge to shoot…
