Playing The Field

Balloons and tinsel in a working farm paddock? This is the sight we saw while heading out from Gore yesterday and I couldn't believe my eyes! This farm field looks like Party Central but I'm sure the intent is to scare off the birds.. an innovative strategy! A new sight to us - we haven't... Continue Reading →

Railway Station and Hotel

Invercargill is at the south end of the South Island of New Zealand. On the other side of the block from the main street, the west side of the inner city, you'll find a very beautiful railway hotel on which sits the elegant wind vane that I showed you in  Wind Vane, Invercargill.

Cornus Flowers in Bannerman Park

Yesterday I posted a photo of a Cornus (dogwood) tree in Bannerman Park taken by Nigel on 20 Dec 2018. While we were there I found a good position for a closer photo of the blooms and Nigel also took a shot from the same place. Here are both photos with similar composition. Taken by...
