The Bricks Spoke, Nigel

In my last post I showed Nigel photographing the back wall of the  Leviathan Hotel  from a carpark entrance. He had his Olympus Digital camera with him so was able to get decent shots of the play of sunlight on the old uneven brick wall. He took these photos on Sat 07 Dec 2019. We... 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 →

Silent Light

There's something in the experience of stillness, simplicity and silence that's a blessed balm in the busyness of business as usual. Contemplate for a moment the silence and beauty of this simple space. The play of light and shadow on the textured floor.

The clouds seem to extend the reach of the tree branches, and I like the long shadows. Red crabapples provide bright colour on this winter day. Alexandra, Central Otago, New Zealand. Taken 08 Aug by Liz.

Dear Deer

Yesterday was a beautiful day, I wish more days in winter could be like yesterday! I suggested to Nigel that we take a drive to the country pub at Waikaka. We sat outside and ate burgers in the sunshine. I drank cider and Nigel had a beer. Waikaka, Southland / West Otago, New Zealand Shadowy... Continue Reading →

Bedroom Lightshade

The last occupants of our new home were artists and worked in stained glass and in pottery. The couple have gone into care and we've inherited some of their work. Our bedroom lightshade is one example. It sits beneath the light-bulb and therefore dims the light. Having always favoured brightly lit rooms I had no... Continue Reading →
