Seen In Dunedin

A few shots from a recent visit to Dunedin. A pretty little building facing the street and two photos from a carpark I explored - the same one where I found the intriguing No Exit sign. New Zealand, 15 March.

Millers Flat Tavern

The Tavern sits parallel to a main highway while the blue single-lane bridge crosses the Clutha /Mata-au River to the small settlement of Millers Flat. Built 1926 and formerly called the Bridge Hotel, the building itself is fairly stark but the many colourful flowers and bright touches ensure a warm welcome as do the proprietors....

Summer Red

Pōhutukawa flowers, our New Zealand 'Christmas Tree', are sensational. Here's three different examples we came across yesterday 18 Jan, at Dunedin Botanic Garden. We also saw plenty flowering in gardens along the south coast road to Taieri Mouth, on our way home. Click on any photo to enlarge. Metrosideros excelsa At the main top carpark... Continue Reading →

Wild Thing

Evil snarling beast with wicked teeth.. "HOONIGAN" showed up as we were crossing the carpark. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

Well Mannered Gull

It was Friday midday and I was down the waterfront at Oamaru killing time while Nigel had a work-related meeting in a cafe in town. I got out my Panasonic Lumix camera to take a photo of the sea when I saw that this gull further down the railing was sidling quickly toward me along... Continue Reading →

Hints of Colour

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 →

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 →

Oamaru Railway: Nigel

In Oamaru the railway tracks are located right next to the ocean, forming a boundary between town and sea. On 21 January we both enjoyed exploring this area near the old railway station and my photos have already been posted in  Which Way: Oamaru Railway. I wanted to select from Nigel's photos for this post.... Continue Reading →

Morris Minor 1000 "Gladys" (name written in red at the back), obviously the pride and joy of its owner. Parked at Queens Park, Invercargill, New Zealand. Liz 08 Sept 2018. I liked the surreal intrusion of reflections.

Where From Here?

Have you ever wondered what its like to visit 'Down Under' to New Zealand, explore the 'mainland' or South Island, and follow the highway down south to the very end? Today I'll show you what its like at Stirling Point where the highway terminates. The closest town is a tiny drive away at Bluff. I'll... Continue Reading →

Faded Fantasy

When wandering around Dunedin on 21 May 2018, I came across this rather faded looking mural on a wall facing the Scenic Circle Southern Cross Hotel carpark, just off High Street. It didn't make much sense to me and I found it a puzzling artwork. I did a search and found it was painted in... Continue Reading →
