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.

For more weekend reflections, go to James’ Weekend Reflections site.

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


  1. The decorations, the reflections, the eyes looking at you, it all comes perfectly together for a great photograph!
    I really like it!

  8. 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.

  11. 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.
