Ennis House LA

In yesterday's post I offered a distant glimpse of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Ennis House on a hilltop in Los Feliz, Los Angeles USA. It was a truly magical experience to see this house and I don't think I had any idea of what to expect! It looks like a huge Mayan Temple and... Continue Reading →

Hummingbird Day

This post is about the lead-up to finding the Ennis House designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, in Los Angeles (in 2010). We don't remember much of that day but from the photo-dates it appears we found our way there the same day we visited Hollyhock House. We remember spending time in Los Feliz and loving...

Hollyhock House LA

I've been building up to this post with my recent photo-postings of hollyhock flowers and in this post I'll share photos of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hollyhock House in Los Angeles. These were taken by Nigel during our 2010 stop-over in LA. This was our first visit to a FLW house ever and it was... Continue Reading →

Christmas Day

We found this lovely nativity scene Christmas Day 2019 when we made a visit to St Patrick's Basilica in South Dunedin, New Zealand (Catholic). Beautiful church both inside and out. Redeveloped in the 2000s, officially re-opened 19 June 2016. Click on ANY photo below to enlarge. Text and photos by Liz; Exploring Colour (2020)

[...] "Although the time is pretty accurate, strong winds can and have been known to stop the hands, making timekeeping a little harder in the face of a good... Continue Reading →

Iona Church, Port Chalmers

Two views of Iona Church, both taken by Nigel 29 Dec 2019. There's been a church on the site overlooking the town since 1852, the first being a small wooden building with a square tower at the front. This was demolished to make way for a stone building now named Johnstone Hall, opened in January... Continue Reading →

Welcome Everybody

I've shared with you the tui mural photos that we took on Christmas Day but we also enjoyed a wonderful visit to a Catholic church in South Dunedin named St Patrick's Basilica - it felt very special to be there. For the record I know very little about Catholicism but the church felt very welcoming.... Continue Reading →
