For more black and white images check out Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.

High above a path in Grey Lynn Park this intrepid knight of the 20th century is prepared to take on any foe…

For a few moments the sun was filtered by a thin cloud layer for this backlit image.

Grey Lynn Park has a number of sculptures, commissioned by local residents from artists with a connection to the area. This one is entitled On the Backs of Others (Inia Taylor 1996). Made from totara wood and copper.

An interesting read about life in Grey Lynn is Paul Little’s mystery of the Grey Lynn bread run.
