Concrete Action, Part 2

These tall concrete sculptural panels are in the centre of Invercargill. When we took the photos on Saturday the panels were better lit by the natural light than we're accustomed to seeing. If you look carefully, you can see two small shelves included on the panels and these both have a Green Man. Nigel was... Continue Reading →

Casafuego, Fire House

Casafuego Eatery & Bar (literally “fire house” in Spanish), in a building that used to be a fire station. Mexican cafe/restaurant. I took these photos January 28 and didn't get around to blogging. Balclutha, South Otago, New Zealand. Text by Liz, photos by Liz; Exploring Colour (2019)

Casafuego Pool Room

These photos taken during a winter visit to Casafuego Mexican cafe/restaurant in Balclutha on 08 July 2019. They'd added a pool table since our previous visit. We loved the look but our photos came out rather 'flat' due to the light conditions. Today I had a bit of a 'play' with my recently downloaded photo... Continue Reading →

River Medusa

River Medusa is a response to the Gore area -- Maruawai, Valley of Water. It pays tribute to the sustaining presence of the Mataura River and the many small streams that feed it.

Hullabaloo: The Nevis

A spectacular hidden valley close to Bannockburn, yet isolated because of its difficult access, the Nevis Valley is the subject of this year's winter show. Wind your way up the Carrick Range to Duffers Saddle and imagine being in a wagon drawn by Clydesdale horses or bullocks, struggling up the mountain pass, 1000metres in 10... Continue Reading →

Hullabaloo Two

In my last post* I introduced you to the  Hullabaloo Art Space  in the  Cromwell Heritage Precinct. The art on display was amazing - I took lots more photos than I'd anticipated! The gallery itself is light and airy, uncluttered.. a very pleasant place to spend time in. The artworks are extremely creative, varied, and... Continue Reading →
