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.

Yesterday morning we had thick fog around our area. This was one of my early morning shots: a groundsman marking out the playing field.

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.

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.
