Evil snarling beast with wicked teeth.. "HOONIGAN" showed up as we were crossing the carpark. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.
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 →
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 →
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 →
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.
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 →
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 →
Speargrass Inn is a beautifully restored historic hotel now operating as a cafe with separate B&B accommodation. We'd hoped to enjoy the cafe on our way back home on Saturday. The district where Speargrass Inn is located is called Fruitlands and we found the cafe had closed for the winter hence my title 'Fruitless Fruitlands'.... Continue Reading →
While wandering in Dunedin on Monday 21 May, I came across this mural when I looked into a carpark that's opposite Taste Nature in High Street. From the signature I found that its a 2018 mural and from an Otago Daily Times article I found that it was done in February. The artist, Jacob Yikes,... Continue Reading →
On Sunday 13 May we walked across the supermarket carpark in Gore and noticed this painted wall. Nigel immediately commented on it being a 'silver fern' shopping trolley, and so it is! The silver fern icon is the body of the trolley with little circles added to show the handle and the wheels. Kiwi as!... Continue Reading →
