Wee Dub – VW

In Dunedin on a wet, dreary day earlier in October (horrid day, I resolutely remained in the motel) Nigel was busy in the city and found this sweet Volkswagen or VW van parked in the street. Cute! 'Wee Dub', Dunedin, New Zealand   Text by Liz, photos by Nigel; Exploring Colour (2019)

Concrete Action, Part 2

These tall concrete sculptural panels are in the centre of Invercargill. When we took the photos on Saturday the panels were better lit by the natural light than we're accustomed to seeing. If you look carefully, you can see two small shelves included on the panels and these both have a Green Man. Nigel was... Continue Reading →

Upon My Word!

What do Paris and Invercargill (NZ) have in common? Very little so imagine my surprise when Damien published  a photo-post from Paris  and there was something I could relate to - a patisserie with an eerily familiar name. Familiar that is, to the name of a pie shop in Invercargill! Now dear reader, excuse my... Continue Reading →

Mornington, Dunedin

I'm setting the scene for a post I'll be doing soon, about a coffee roastery. Mornington is a steep climb from Dunedin Central and we regularly drive through here when going to or from Dunedin. Years ago a cable car service operated between Mornington and the city. Recently, long-held plans to re-establish the cable car... Continue Reading →

Support for Seafarers

I have an interest in ports, ships, containers, swing-lift trucks, port machinery, stacks of containers, stacks of logs.. I love the port environment! We've just got home from an overnighter to Dunedin and last night we went to Port Chalmers to have dinner at the Portsider restaurant and pub. Port Chalmers is about a 15-minute...

Pretty Colours

I never know when I'm going to suddenly chance upon some colours that stop me in my tracks.. I guess that's why I'm always on the lookout for them. On Saturday in Invercargill I was blessed with two stand-out colour moments! Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand. Taken 02 March 2019 At the rose garden near the... Continue Reading →

So Simple to Return My Book

I had to return a book to Invercargill Public Library today and its never been easier. You put your book(s) on the designated returns shelf and a nearby computer display confirms that the book has been discharged from your record. Other people who come along can then take the book out if they want to,... Continue Reading →

Wind Vane: Bell Tea

Nigel spotted this wind vane arrow on top of the  Bell Tea  building in Dunedin and took some photos for me, on 13 October 2018 but I never got around to doing the post! The hyperlink on "Bell Tea" links to another post I did about the same building on 28 May 2018. The building... Continue Reading →
