Green Wall in Rural Town Centre

On Monday I accompanied Nigel from Dunedin to Balclutha (rural township about an hour's drive from our home in Dunedin). With some time on my hands, I decided to wander up the main street and take a look at the Green Wall that was installed during a major Main Street Upgrade in 2015. I was... Continue Reading →

We'd never noticed this bottle effect until recently when we happened to be in Vogel Street in the late afternoon light. Dunedin, New Zealand.
