When we were in
Sydney, my son and I decided to have a competition to see who could take the creepiest photo at Luna Park (a 1930s styled amusement park)… we couldn’t decide which photo was the creepiest, so we’re turning the judging over to you!
Take a look, then make your vote…
Now make your vote:
Take Our Poll
Voting closes next Saturday, so you’ve got a week to decide.
The photo with most votes will get published in extra-creepy black and white next weekend… mwahahahahahahahaha… erm… thank you 🙂
Last weekend, I spent some time hanging out with my family at
Te Papa has a lovely outdoor native bush space, which includes a geological collection of large rocks/huge boulders of varying ages and types.
It was a wettish day and the serpentine specimen (which is at least twice my size and several million years older than me) was glistening gloriously. I do adore the colours and shading of serpentine:
I love the waterfront here in Wellington – it’s one of the things that made me fall in love with the city when I first came here twenty-mumble years ago.
It is a comfortably vibrant place – land meets sea in the heart of the city.
I love how you can go from watching ducks swimming in deep water to crossing a busy road to the centre of town with a few footsteps.
I love how nature and industry mix and mingle to create a very special and very human place.
Last Friday, I had occasion to go into town, so I took these photos as I walked under moody skies round the waterfront to my eventual destination:
“Let yourself become living poetry” Rumi
What would it take me to do this?
What changes would I need to make to live this way?
How can I let go and let the poetry flow?
I’m just back from a couple of days away with my family. We had a nice, relaxing time, and, as usual, I took plenty of photos. Here’s a selection:
Evidence of Spring at Levin
I love the architecture of Puke Ariki museum+ in New Plymouth – it also has some fascinating exhibitions.
The fascinating shapes of engineering – glass lift outside Puke Ariki
Big waves on the New Plymouth waterfront
Real snow on the lower slopes of Taranaki/Mt Egmont – yes, we did have snow ball fight 😉
Monument and mountain
I love mossy trees
No, really, I LOVE mossy trees (and I have a lot more photos like this!)
Polish eagle at Inglewood
Detail of the Polish fountain at Inglewood
Street sign at Inglewood. Matai is my cat‘s name, and also the name of one of NZ’s native trees.
Cheese vats at Eltham (I have a soft spot for industrial architecture, as well as for mossy trees)
Outisde the cheese factory at Eltham (looking down to the ‘Cheese Bar’ factory shop…)
Random kids enjoying Kowhai Park playground at Wanganui – if you have kids, or a youthful imagination, it’s well worth a visit
