Tanks, Wynyard Quarter

The Tank Farm in Auckland’s Wynyard quarter provides unlimited opportunities to study shapes and shadows. At present, there is a lot of development going on in this neighbourhood.

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


  1. Love those shadows!
    It’s nice as well that the stairs are shaped differently and give two different patterns.
    Fine photo.

  2. Who would have thought 2 huge tanks would have made such an interesting shot. The shadow of the stairs is great! Mickie

  5. These are terrific and very creative. We have the same here in Houston, but I’ve never been close enough to photograph one.
    Congrats on making it in the B&W Showcase this week. David/
