Landmark House

Durham Street East allows a narrow view of the corner of Landmark house on Queen Street. Built in 1928-1930 in art deco style for the Auckland Electric Power Board, who occupied the upper floors until their move to Newmarket in 1968. Since then, major refurbishments of the interior have taken place, retaining some of the historic parts.

Luke Hurley

Luke Hurley is an acclaimed guitarist/singer/songwriter, both locally and internationally. Here he is seen busking at the corner of Queen and Darby Streets, Auckland CBD. This was last week, and although the sun was shining (it’s raining solid at present), it could not penetrate the canyon that is Queen Street. However, reflected sunlight from one of the buildings opposite was focused on that corner.

Instrument by Steve Barkman.

On the prowl at Aotea Square. An ice rink (and ice slide) is opening today on Aotea Square, complete with polar bears, penguins and seals (the latter were not installed yet when I came past a few days ago – made by Rawstorne Studios).
