On the 29th of January I went out on the construction site of the future Transmission Gully motorway. It’s certainly a surreal experience being in the space which is going to be totally transformed and which will change Wellington in the future. I was working with a film crew interviewing staff when this excavator came past. While they halted filming, I forecast an opportunity to get the gully and the machine in a picture. It was then a simple matter of composing and waiting.
