What he meant by this is our small metropolitan area, relatively small population base and density makes it difficult to get the kind of street scenes you'd see in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, London, Istanbul, Hong Kong, etc
I took a look online for any Auckland street photography sites or blogs, I found a couple of discontinued blogs about street fashion in Auckland . It's not exactly what I like to snap when I'm out and about and frankly with my sense of style it would be pretty hypocritical to be writing about what's in and what's not.
I've been taking a few photos with my Olympus OM-D E-M5 and sticking it on a Tumblr (www.aucklandia.com) . It's nothing fancy just me learning the ropes of photography and taking photos on the street. I realise New Zealand is pretty small and landscape photography is a lot easier for some than street photography, but I love being able to tell stories about the city I live in through the people walking on its streets.
If you want to join me on Saturdays when I go for random wanders around town, different flea markets, and events taking photos, or if you have cool photos you want to share - get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
