Pretty Tea-tree

I've posted my photos of this lovely garden cultivar of Leptospermum scoparium back in Dec 2019 but Nigel also took photos that day and I thought I'd do another post. This tree is in the Roslyn suburb of Dunedin, New Zealand and the view is looking down toward Otago Harbour. Photos taken by Nigel 07... Continue Reading →

Chocolate Factory, Dunedin NZ

The Dunedin chocolate factory closed (sigh) but the tank remains. We’ll gain a brand new hospital on this site, resolving the long-running and contentious location issue. Liz, 29 Dec 2019. New Zealand.

Blue On Blue, Dunedin NZ

Several identical tile pictures adorn the wall of this corner shop in central Dunedin, New Zealand. Nigel mused it'd probably been a butcher shop, I'm guessing he's right. Liz, 29 Dec 2019.

For more information and photos, Wendy from the North Island has done excellent tui posts:  tui feasting on kowhai... 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 →

Silent Night, Holy Night

We'd driven over to another part of town late on Christmas Day to photograph a sign that we'd wanted to see lit up at night. Driving back to the motel we spotted colourful lights outside a church and stopped to take a closer look. That's me looking at the nativity scene. It was peaceful and... Continue Reading →

Going Green

Nigel pulled into the BP fuel station on the outskirts of Invercargill before we headed home yesterday and this eye-catching very green Holden ute was already parked on the forecourt. It turns out the proud owner of the vehicle is a champion table tennis player hence the number plate TT GIRL. She started playing table... 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....
