Orderly Autumn

You have to get out of town to see the autumn colours… We generally don’t do them well on the north island… but sometimes… sometimes we do all right

Autumn Lingers

with 10 comments


Those in the northern hemisphere seem to forget that those of us in the southern hemisphere are deep in the midst of Autumn. And a most beautiful Autumn this year… I can’t remember the colours ever being this vivid…

Sorry for being absent – still convalescing a bit – and, I suppose, taking advantage of the situation – as one does…

Broken Bridge

with one comment

Spotted this decaying old bridge on the way down to Tongariro, but went right past. It stuck in my mind though and I made a point of looking out for it on the way back…

Can’t quite explain it, but it feels so desolate, so absolutely lost and forgotten. The stream it once traversed is dried up, probably diverted for irrigation purposes. I don’t know – no  sign of it nearby. No houses or buildings of any kind. Just this old broken bridge. Like the remains of a dinosaur.

My shoes

with 5 comments

(Note, I have no idea what has happened to the resolution of this photo! Those shoes are so sharp you could cut yourself on them in the original! argh… apologies!!!)

There is something about a pair of shoes that cost more than a round trip flight to Europe. I don’t really want them – or rather, I’d prefer the trip overseas.

But that does not mean their beauty and allure is lost on me. But then, perhaps it is, as I can’t even remember who the designer was…

Balloon Flower (red)

The thing I love about Jeff Koons is that he can always make me smile, even when I didn’t think it was possible. It’s his work (not mine), but it seemed like the right thing to put up today.

Americas Cup 2022

with 2 comments

Watched a class of beginner boaties out in the bay today – I think it may have been the first session of the year. No sails for the brand new ones, sturdy plastic kayaks and paddles – and still they struggled with the rules both natural and man-made.

This little guy, who couldn’t have been more than 10 or 11 was clearly advanced and handled himself brilliantly for more than an hour – until it was time to go… Yeah – he’s dreaming of the Americas Cup 2022…
