Mainly West of Queen Street - seen through my lens

Passing by the Library

Onehunga Library

Onehunga Library

The plate glass at the Onehunga Library has rather ornate decorations. I could not resist a shot as I walked past, mixing both sides of the window – and getting an apprehensive look from the students working inside.

    I like the picture – very much – but feel anxious for the person who may not have wanted their picture taken and now the world can see it.

    I love this! Spectacular window, amd the reflections give the feeling of peeping into another world.

    Every time I look at the Onehunga glass plate photo I discover something new in the photo. This aspect about the glass plate would make it an ideal piece of entertainment to be used in a waiting lounge.
