Its an amazing Museum with some outstanding views of the city. We were there in January with some local friends. It was a great sunny day, perfect for capturing the nice smoggy layer over the city. Its actually quite pretty despite being really bad for the environment…
The garden you see is really nice to wander around and relax or sit down in the shade and appreciate the view. There is a neat little stream that wends its way down a path to the big water feature maze thing you can see above.
Rach and I went wandering yesterday afternoon to find a good place to take a shot of the sun setting over Breck. It seems to set about 5pm every night, almost like clockwork! Just as our toes were starting to protest about standing in the snow for so long while we waited for the sun to dip below the mountain, I saw this horse and cart emerge around the corner I pounced on my remote and got this shot.
Once the shutter released I quickly packed up my tripod and camera and we headed off to D’vine Wine for some tastings. Great evening!!!
This abandoned shoe has been sitting at the start of Langana, off John Downs Drive, for a while now. We keep passing it on our walks. It has been ‘tagged’ with what looks like white out / correction fluid. I wont repeat what it says in case there are kids around lol However if you live down this way I invite you to go and observe the crude street art.
I made my wife stop and wait while I knelt on the road and took a photo of the lonesome footwear with my trusty iphone4.
There is a stream/creek at Waiake Beach in Torbay that runs out to sea. This creek happens to not be as deep as its name suggests. I used to kayak down it with the scout group ‘Awatuna’. Waiake always reminds me of my friend Kareen who used to live just up from the beach :)
Anyway, while on the bank taking photos of a mammoth sized Pohutukawa I noticed the flowers of the Pohutukawa were already falling, leaving a red carpet on the sand.
This shot is looking towards the bridge that has the walkway alongside the creek.
