Coffee Cup and a Gold Car

When you buy a takeaway coffee from Wolf at the Door the container has this wonderful design. Wolf at the Door, 6 Carroll Street, Dunedin, New Zealand.   I LOVE the old-fashioned stained glass door!

Art in Autumn : Designing with Leaves

Me and SO were at the Dunedin Botanic Garden a few weeks ago on a perfect autumn day and he started playing around with the leaves under a Liriodendron tree (tulip tree). The leaves are very big and there were lots of different colour variations. I liked the results of his efforts!     Words... Continue Reading →

REBLOG: The Most Colorful Steps Around The World

REBLOG: Really enjoyed this post from Flow Art Station showing beautiful street art steps in various locations. My personal favourite was the fish swimming on blue steps in Seoul, Korea. By following the credits I found what appears to be the original article at Bored Panda.

Mobile Food Caravan, Dunedin, New Zealand

COLOUR ON CURT CORNERS, PART 7; OUR SHADE IN TIME

REBLOG: This is my favourite poem. When I read it I feel like I’m cosily cocooned within the layers, the “million meters mounded into magic”. I love how the shape of the text mirrors the shape of the dress. Savour the words that ripple and flow like the dress itself. For more poems and other writing, and for delightful photos in Paris head on over to Deuxiemepeau; Picturing Poetry by D. B. Donnelly.

Deuxiemepeau; Picturing Poetry by Damien B. Donnelly

Look for me
in the layers lost,
in the careful caress
that concerns the contours
of form and finesse. The million
meters mounded into magic, turned
and twisted into tastes now termed timeless,
look for me in the yards that yield towards yellow,
that burn into beauty, like ochre opening, that grow towards
the gleam of green, that flit and flow like a feather in flight, like rays
of the old days that ripple on the water. Look for me by the curt corners
of concrete where complacency converges, look for me where the columns congregate,
creation is not just a concept concerned with procreation
but with the colours and costumes

we claim to parade our personality.

A Cute Orange Cottage Stole My Heart

Sunday 18 June in Dunedin, New Zealand. Glorious, sunny winter's day with an almost cloudless blue sky.  My husband and I were out walking on a street, just relaxing and chatting and looking at houses, plants, gardens. And I spotted this bright orange cottage with blue window frames and a blue door and fell head... Continue Reading →

Old National Bank, Dunedin, New Zealand

The National Bank of New Zealand, 193 Princes Street, Dunedin, NZ. "This is a relatively ornate large building and one of the few Dunedin buildings to show the Baroque tendencies of Edwardian architecture. It ranks with the Law Courts and the Town Hall in representing the important stone buildings of the beginning of the century."... Continue Reading →
