Silos always make for interesting photo subjects with all the geometry that is at play. These ones are the Holcim cement silos at Onehunga Wharf.

As I was walking up Ponsonby Road yesterday, I was attracted to the exhibition “Singularities” by John Parker at the Masterworks Gallery. Geometry and colour.

Another work by John Parker is here.

I liked the geometry of the construction and scaffolding against the sky. (Meanwhile, the weather has turned…)

Straight lines and Curves

“Opa, can we go to the park?” was a frequently asked question during the visit of our Sydney grandsons — and off we went to the playground, trying to keep up with bundles of boundless energy, kicking balls, chasing, … Alas, all too often I had to call time out to catch my breath.

Aotea (Long White Cloud)

With simple aluminium profiles, Sopolemalama Filipe Tohi conjures up a feast for the eyes: as you move closer and move around the sculpture, there is a wonderful illusion of movement, created by the varying perspective, enhanced by the shiny metal and the positioning in the reflective pond outside the gallery.

Sopolemalama Filipe Tohi is a sculptor of Tongan origin living in New Zealand. We have shown some of his work on this blog before.
