"Lorne St Mural"

There is a Bansky inspired mural outside the public library, which is actually really good - Lorne St Mural. It is a pity someone else has already tagged over the face in the mural :(

Auckland Art Week 2014

I've just finished putting my photos from the Auckland Art Week 2014, which ended on Sunday the 19th. There were a number of events I couldn't take photos at, the largest display at the Art Gallery for example did not allow photography at all.

Auckland Museum photos

I've completly re-done the basic layout of my page for the Auckland Museum, so that's it mulitple pages - one for each section. As the orginal page was ridiculously long and took a long time to download even with broadband, so I've essentially seperated all of the photos into small groups on their own pages...

Now it's just a matter of going back and taking some more photos, espically in the areas that either need bulking out due to the fact that I have almost no photos of that part of the museum or beacuse I don't like some/all of the photos I have taken. (For example I want to take some photos of the outside of the museum when it's a nice day with blue skies to replace the photos I have with grey clouds, pluse I want to take to take some photos some things that are outside like gun implacements that i don't ahve photos of yet...).

Christmas decorations

I've been slowly adding photos to my main Christmas 2013 page, as and when I come across something I think is different - a lot of the decorations I see in the city or in shopping malls are boring standard ones so I don't bother. I added my photos I took of the Franklin Road Christmas Lights 2013 last week, some of them came out surpisingly well.

No changes to my Auckland Santa Parade 2013 of course...

Auckland Christmas parade & decorations

I've just finished updating my pages of photos of the Christmas 2013 decorations - the ones in the central city inclduing the Smith & Caughey Windows in particular - and the Auckland Santa Parade 2013 pages. Still got the Frandklin Road lights to go of course as they don't start until the 1st of Decemeber, amoung other things... :)

Wool Graffiti in Devonport, Auckland

There's some really well done "wool graffiti" in the Devonport shopping centre at the moment - actually there is a group that has been putting up different wool graffiti over the last 1 to 2 years now. (I think it's an art collective type group). Most of the photos - Wool Graffiti - as there are a number of large photos I'm sure people don't want me flooding their friends list with :) My favourite by a long shot is the one with the frogs on it :)

I just had to share, and feijoas are such a kiwi thing



This was so cute and amazing. It sold for $1000 on TradeMe this weekend with half the funds going to the Child Cancer Foundation
