The City Daily Photo theme for March is “Where do you belong? Where is Heimat for you?” or something along these lines. My stock reply to this is: “home is where I am” – and for the last 46 years this was Auckland, the most recent 11 years in the suburb of Titirangi. The present pictures were taken last Sunday. A bit of mist in the valleys, as seen from Mount Atkinson, a view of the village from the top of Lopdell House, and to prove that we are not totally bucolic, a traffic jam at the roundabout.

More interpretations of the theme here.

    Beautiful place to belong.

    This looks like a fine place to call home. I love your misty first view.

  5. Dina

    A beautiful place for a Heimat.
    Nice that you included that personal bit in your post, too.

    Lots of variety to call “home.”
