A Bright Morning

The Window

The Window

Cobwebs in a window at Lopdell House, Titirangi, catching the morning sun.

For more black and white images check out Dragonstar’s Weekend in Black and White.

The Guard

Teddy has taken residence at the gate to the Lower Huia Dam, drawing attention to the signs about track closures (to protect healthy stands of kauri from the dieback disease which is spread through foot traffic).

I Wish!

Hair

Hair

The good folk at Face and Body have a way with words. I am clearly not part of their target demographic, even if we allow for facial hair …

Who told a fib?

Pinocchio

Pinocchio

I found Pinocchios in all sizes, and even a spare nose, at Passion for Paper in Parnell.

Baker’s Dozen

… or something about yeast…

Seen yesterday morning at the top of Mount Atkinson, Titirangi, after a pretty chilly night.

Look Down!

Look Down!

“Look Down!” commands the City Daily Photo theme for July. This is what I saw — just don’t tell me I have a foot fetish!

Below: even the swans at Western Springs are looking down!

Preserves and Apostorphies

Preserves and Apostorphies

At the Titirangi Sunday Market: inside the Titirangi War Memorial Hall, sheltered from the on/off showers outside. Sitting at a table, sipping a miso soup, listening to Maria’s flamenco guitar – and looking up to the stage where tasting jars of sweet and savoury preserves beckon (together with a surfeit of apostrophy’s).

You can “Look Down!” on Friday (theme day).

Flower Power

Flower Power

Enjoying the Harbourview Sculpture Trail. (There is a sculpture entitled “flowerpower” right behind me – but I got distracted…)

Matters of the Heart

Woodlands Park Roundabout

Woodlands Park Roundabout

Subtle hints at the Woodlands Park roundabout, more forceful message at Face&Body…

Happy Valentines Day.

Or if you are not romantically inclined, you may want to visit the Heart Foundation.

Regret?

Shadow Play

Shadow Play

Was it the genius of the artist or of the curator’s sense of humour that made me see faces all over the wall?
