Wellingtonian flickr-ites Felicity and Philip were narrowly pipped at the post for first picture of 2006 to hit the American-based mega-site Flickr and the 2006firstpix pool (with their snap [above] of New Years revelries in Civic Square), by Masterton’s curiouskiwi (who has taken enough fine pictures of Wellington to qualify as a local anyway), who managed to stay up late enough for her shutter to snap down on this riveting scene at exactly 12:00:02 on the 1st of January 2006 (there was a leap second, which makes all the difference, apparently.
