36/14: fancy that – art deco style

Knowing we were returning to Napier, New Zealand, on our cruise in January 2014, dubbed “the Art Deco capital of the southern hemisphere”, I came up with the idea of taking some dress-ups and doing our own little photo shoot as a different type of souvenir.

As well as accosting an unsuspecting passer-by to take the shot I had set up, we had the enjoyment of other passengers from the ship thinking we were two of the locals, who habitually dress up when cruise ships are docked. It was amusing when we turned up at the dining room for dinner that night, still dressed in the same gear!

Here is my favourite photo from that day:
