Mainly West of Queen Street - seen through my lens




A happy new year to all!

The City Daily Photo theme for January is “photo of the year”. My choice is this black and white shot of grandson Thomas. We have just spent a glorious time together with extended family at Boomerang Beach (Australia) – explaining in part my absence from the blogging scene over the last few weeks – and today is the day we have to say goodbye as he heads off to Hong Kong and we get ready to travel home to Auckland.

    Gorgeous looking lad, Paul. Must be hard to have him grow up so far away. May 2015 be very kind to you.
