JML297 (Blue Mountains, Australia) posted this fun photo taken in a cafe in Five Dock, Sydney - the side of a cold drinks fridge.
In Gore there's a family-friendly pub/restaurant called Howl At The Moon and I thought I had some photos from inside but it seems I've deleted them. There's something about wolf imagery that I enjoy and here's two artworks from WP bloggers that caught my eye recently and I thought I'd like to share them. Both... Continue Reading →

This Mandala design from Jimmy Turner, Director of Horticulture for Royal Botanic Garden Sydney: "The @RBGSydney Horticulture staff did an amazing job interpreting my coloured drawing into a masterpiece." The vibrant vegetable Mandala was created for the Tomato Festival Sydney 2020 held on... Continue Reading →

Also, some nice stained glass windows on the top gallery level in the same space. These railway-themed tile pictures border the outer edge of... Continue Reading →
After cleaning the stained glass lightshade I dealt with the mantelpiece I've been ignoring for ages!

For more information and photos, Wendy from the North Island has done excellent tui posts: tui feasting on kowhai... Continue Reading →
Tui detail from a mural on a carpark wall in Dunedin, New Zealand. Photo and Title from my OH Nigel Cowburn. Tuis are native songbirds, very territorial, and they fly like rockets!
Photos showing small parts of a larger work. In my next post I'll extend the coverage. We took these photos on Christmas Day in Dunedin, New Zealand. Probably the only day we could guarantee no cars in the carpark! Second photo taken by Nigel, others by Liz. Text by Liz, photos by Liz and Nigel;... Continue Reading →
In Dunedin on Christmas Day we were taking photos of a mural by a carpark but I also wandered over to a shipping container to look at the Royal Wolf logo. I've often admired these but never had the opportunity to be so close. Having photographed the logo I got interested in the marks around... Continue Reading →
