The Day Tripper project started by itself. When I got to Wellington, I started to take long trips with the Day Tripper ticket. Turned out to be an excellent way to know about Wellington and the areas around it. In many of these trips, I talked to people about the city and about the kind of persons that live here. Later on the photos started, and soon realized that Wellington is a beautiful city not just because of the great architecture. It's a beautiful city because of its people. Really kind, they let a complete stranger approach, take photos, learn about their lives and hope for the best. - Fernando Ramirez Photographer
