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....

Magic in an Aviary

The aviary is part of Queens Park, Invercargill (Southland, New Zealand) but you feel like it's in a little world of its own. To enter you cross a bridge over water, creating distance from the rest of the gardens.. and inside there's magic if you want to find it. All photos by Nigel except the... Continue Reading →

Overnight in Oamaru

In January when we stayed in Oamaru overnight, we chose a hotel that we've dined in several times but never stayed at - The Brydone Hotel. Its an old building and we weren't sure if we'd like the accommodation but were pleasantly surprised and very happy with our room which even included a bath in... Continue Reading →

Christmas Neighbours

The Invercargill neighbourhood with many decorated houses has one small cul-de-sac notable for the number of residents who participate. It was a joy to visit! This was the most highly decorated house in the cul-de-sac and it was also the first one we arrived at. Invercargill, Southland, New Zealand, taken 07 Dec 2018 All horizontal... Continue Reading →

Aronui Dam at Alexandra

Yesterday on our way home to Gore from Queenstown via Central Otago we bypassed Alexandra. Before leaving the area, I asked Nigel to turn part-way toward Alexandra as I wanted to find something I'd read about called Jolendale Park, on a side road. We found the park and had a look around - its a... Continue Reading →

Fortrose: Part Four

While wandering along the beach from the old jetty piles to the road, we'd had a good look at the upper foreshore area with its piles of driftwood, pretty water-worn pebbles and shells, bits of pink seaweed, and various human interventions - some nice and some not so nice. Fortrose:  Part One  |  Part Two ... Continue Reading →

Garden Elements at Larnach

The Laburnum Tunnel at Larnach wasn't the only thing that caught our attention on Saturday. Here are some other photos from the same visit that I'd like to share with you... These young Wedding Cake Trees are right by the carpark. It was late afternoon when we left and the sun was very bright. Much... Continue Reading →

I'm pleased to share it here with his permission.   Photo by Lignum Draco   "Centrally... Continue Reading →
