The August theme for the City Daily Photo bloggers is “Bright Colours”. Click here to view thumbnails for all participants.

The Art Bunker at 108 Atkinson Road, Titirangi is a colourful landmark and a hive of creativity. Right now, Heathermeg and Byron are holding a clearance sale (“Everything at half price”), hoping to create the space needed to refurbish the premises in time for the Christmas season, and to better accommodate their evolving activities. Heathermeg is the painter (on canvas, corrugated iron, fabric, …) and Byron is an accomplished jeweller and potter. Check out their website for some of the work.

Right opposite of the Art Bunker is Kaurilands School – I like the fact that the children get such an immediate taste of the arts in the community.

    That bunker has an incredible facade, Paul. Bursting at the seams. I adore tht couch too.
    my spam-word is ‘rugby’ which I think is unfair given the results of the Bledisloe last night!!!!!

    It’s so colorful and artsy, I love it!

    Wonderful post for Theme Day. Love both photos! My Theme Day post at Portland Oregon Daily Photo will be up at 5 a.m., Pacific Daylight Time, on August 1. Today’s is a pretty nice tease for it, though.

    Now this is my kind of store! Love your photo!

    @Bill: according to Wikipedia “for a long time the area [Titirangi] had a reputation for bohemianism”. I appreciate your more tactful way with words.

    @Julie: I set the anti-spam word to “rugby” for the duration of the day – no just kidding, I didn’t even know the result when you commented. But I felt so superior after that!
