Heart Vision

Heart Vision. ©2019 Louise Gallagher. In my heart vision I tear away the veil that blinds me to nothing but my fear of falling into the dark stagnant abyss where love will never find me

Good Morning!

This is timed to reach northern hemisphere readers in the morning (but for me in New Zealand it's 4.30pm Thursday afternoon). Yesterday we returned from a 2-night trip away, we stayed in Oamaru (East Coast) for the first night and Dunedin for the second night. In Oamaru the two cafes we visited did a fantastic...

Life is like a CAMERA

The kind shopkeeper gave me permission to take a photo (gift shop on the corner near Cafe 55). I really like the words.. do you? Life is like a ... CAMERA Cropped image Here's... Continue Reading →

Winter Cheer

Yesterday we made an afternoon trip to Invercargill and spent some time at Queens Park. Winter has arrived and it's been wet and cold for days on end - grey cloud, drizzle and rain. It felt wonderful to get out of the car for a walk in the park and find that even in winter... Continue Reading →

Homeless

What if slugs are just snails going through a divorce.. "yep she got the house". On a signboard outside Governor's Cafe in Dunedin, New Zealand on March 05, 2019. I've been waiting for a slug to go with the signboard - this morning I found a very fine slug posted by a WP blogger from... Continue Reading →

Mousedrops anyone?

I read this food cabinet sign as "Mousedrops" and wondered if it's a new menu item to complement "Mousetraps". Ha! Then the penny dropped, it does say Mousetraps but the writing style had me fooled. FYI mousetraps are melted-cheese toasties with extra ingredients eg vegemite, bacon, spaghetti. There's some mousetraps sitting on the top shelf... Continue Reading →

Oamaru Railway: Nigel

On 21 January we both enjoyed exploring this area near the old railway station and my photos have already been posted in  Which Way: Oamaru Railway. I wanted to select from Nigel's photos for this post.... 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 →

High Weather Vanes

We'd stopped in Invercargill for a fuel stop, next to the beautiful First Presbyterian Church when I looked up and spotted this weather vane perched on top of the church tower. First Presbyterian Church was designed by architect John T Mair (1876-1959), an Invercargill-born architect who later became the Government Architect. For more information see... Continue Reading →

Which Way Challenge: Door

This door is alarmed. Please do not enter. Sign on side door when entering H&J Smiths department store in Gore, Southland, New Zealand. I took the photo a few days ago and thought I'd join in this challenge for fun. (I found out about it through Chateaux des Fleurs who posted a  Go Your Own... Continue Reading →

Oysters Rock!

Bluff oysters are dredged by Bluff's oyster fleet from Foveaux Strait in March to early August (autumn and winter). The start of the oyster season is a big deal and oysters are harvested and distributed throughout the country very speedily. At the end of May, Bluff hosts the Bluff Oyster and Food Festival with the... Continue Reading →

Beneath the Sea, the oysters rock gently in their beds. Photo taken by Nigel. Commercial building in the port town of Bluff, Southland, New Zealand. 01 Sept 2018. More to come. - Liz 🙂
