Look Down!

“Look Down!” commands the City Daily Photo theme for July. This is what I saw — just don’t tell me I have a foot fetish!

Below: even the swans at Western Springs are looking down!

Luke Hurley

Luke Hurley is an acclaimed guitarist/singer/songwriter, both locally and internationally. Here he is seen busking at the corner of Queen and Darby Streets, Auckland CBD. This was last week, and although the sun was shining (it’s raining solid at present), it could not penetrate the canyon that is Queen Street. However, reflected sunlight from one of the buildings opposite was focused on that corner.

Preserves and Apostorphies

At the Titirangi Sunday Market: inside the Titirangi War Memorial Hall, sheltered from the on/off showers outside. Sitting at a table, sipping a miso soup, listening to Maria’s flamenco guitar – and looking up to the stage where tasting jars of sweet and savoury preserves beckon (together with a surfeit of apostrophy’s).

You can “Look Down!” on Friday (theme day).

Some of the ginkgo trees are completely bare now, some are still resplendend in gold – leaves covering the lawn.

Fly Agaric

I find it impossible to go past such a beautiful specimen of a fly agaric (Amanita mascara) – that’s what most insects seem to say, too, hence most of the fly agarics that you find are in poor state of repair…

You can’t see it from this angle — but there were actually fairies dancing under the cap of the shroom.
