Often Passed By


Today on my wanders my eye seemed drawn to lines and blues and whites ...


Industrial area, harbourside.


Wharf sheds.


Lines & signs.


Somehow, when the name blazoned, 'Sew Hoys', it was a Dunedin landmark; not so much,  the bland, 'Save Mart'.


Tag writing on the sky ... (actually, on sky-reflecting glass).

An aside: where has all the Dunedin street art gone? Our son is pretty sure a lot of them have moved to Wellington. Then a conversation ensued about the grey squares councils use (the world over) to block out street art.


This would make a great blog title. Just in case anyone else has the same idea - too late, I've baggsed it!


Pigeon pair.


Somehow the guy in the shorts & gumboots just makes this New Zealand & nowhere else.




Those of you who know Dunedin may know from this snap, where I stopped off for a coffee ...


... view from the Customhouse restaurant.


On the way home, looking through to the far-side suburb of Opoho.



Fish factory sign.


Leading lines.

Great storytelling through photography. The fish factory sign is classic.

A lovely gallery of lines and color.

Clocking Out

 I have been neglecting this blog for some months. I think perhaps I should face facts and accept that it is indeed time to retire this blog...
