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.

Freighted With Meaning, Dunedin NZ

Tui detail from a mural on a carpark wall in Dunedin, New Zealand. Photo and Title from my OH Nigel Cowburn. Tuis are native songbirds, very territorial, and they fly like rockets!

Yellow Pohutukawa

Earlier today we were in Dunedin and visited St Clair. As soon as we'd parked I spotted a yellow pohutukawa on a nearby private property. This is a rare colour form, the normal colour being bright red (known as the New Zealand Christmas tree). Down south here the pohutukawa trees are just coming into flower... 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....

Southern Heart

This 'heart' map of the far south of the South Island of New Zealand was displayed on a wall in our motel unit when we stayed in Dunedin last weekend. It shows most of the locations that I mention in my blogs. We stayed in the  Commodore Motel, right next to the botanic gardens -... Continue Reading →

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 →

Random in Dunedin

We were in the centre of Dunedin City, The Octagon, for a short while this afternoon and then drove uphill to the suburb of Roslyn which has both a nice cafe and views. In The Octagon I admired the water features and enjoyed seeing the gulls making the most of them. Nearby the city's Christmas... Continue Reading →

My Dream Home

In Dunedin on Sunday in the central city, I noticed this lovely house with beautiful and delicate tracery adorning the entrance and balcony. I was over there like a shot to take photos with my cellphone despite the overly bright light conditions. It was a case of love at first sight, I thought it simply... Continue Reading →
