Brewery Ruins

The Black Horse brewery opened in 1866 and by all accounts did a very fine brew. The business changed names several times and was eventually bought and closed down by NZ Breweries in 1923. The workers moved to Dunedin and started working for Speight's. Most of this information is from a web page on  Weatherstons ... Continue Reading →

Imperial Buildings, Dunedin NZ

Really loved this old commercial building as soon as I saw it. The architectural details and the interesting fire escapes. Wasn't the best time of day for photography and it's on a street corner so not much room to manoeuver, but what a fascinating place. Dunedin, New Zealand. Photos taken 07 Dec 2019. Built 1906....

The Bricks Spoke, Nigel

In my last post I showed Nigel photographing the back wall of the  Leviathan Hotel  from a carpark entrance. He had his Olympus Digital camera with him so was able to get decent shots of the play of sunlight on the old uneven brick wall. He took these photos on Sat 07 Dec 2019. We... Continue Reading →

The Bricks Spoke

I was out wandering streets in Dunedin Central with my dearly beloved, just enjoying "being", when the time of day and location worked brilliantly together, and a brick wall stopped us in our tracks. Wow! The light was playing on the uneven bricks and giving this pixellated arty show just for us! We both reached... Continue Reading →

Years ago a cable car service operated between Mornington and the city. Recently, long-held plans to re-establish the cable car... Continue Reading →

Street Art | Girls Throwing Pink Paint

Girl mischief. Offense and defense. Pink paint. I love this panoramic mural tucked away in a little side alley at 106 Bond Street, Dunedin, New Zealand. The artist, Be free, is a Melbourne artist that has been working on the streets since 2010.

Yellow on a Gray Wet Sunday

Searching for the colour Yellow was our plan on Sunday but the cold, gray day with regular heavy rain showers didn't allow us to wander around outside. Instead, we looked to our own comfort and this is more about how Yellow found me. We took shelter in a cafe named Nectar, one of our favourites,... Continue Reading →
