Lovely May morning by the ponds in Auckland Domain, made all the sweeter after spending a few days in hospital (right next door) and just being discharged. Felt like freedom…
Birdling’s Flat, Canterbury, NZ (March 2021)
The play of light on water – a dappled, or fractured, view – depends on your mood I suppose…
…slice the sky…
…dividing the heavens…
‘Blue And Louvred’
…for the down and shuttered times that come, and must also pass…
‘ ‘Queen City’ Shrouded’
‘Chains & Water’
‘Onion Dome Views’
Two views of the onion dome atop the band rotunda in Auckland Domain.
You may as well have an onion quote too:
” Life is like an onion. You peel it off one layer at a time, and sometimes you weep.”
– Carl Sandberg
‘An Eye To The Sky’
…skylight view up and beyond – a little light is better than none at all…
‘Looking Down The Lane’
… a favourite Auckland view…
‘A Dead End, A Spiral Up’
When you get to the seeming end of things, what will take you beyond ?
‘Closed In (Private Hell)’
A cheerless view, I know.
Mesh, razor wire, a drainpipe and a narrow brick chasm.
I post it as a reminder to myself of what was, and can so easily be again.
The place where everything is closed in, a hell.
May you escape, or avoid, that place, as the case may be.
Peace, Andy L.
‘Fire Escape & Windows’
‘Stripes And Shadows’
…sometimes shadows are as intense as the real thing…
‘Through The Vee’
‘Under The Bridge (Water Cathedral)’
…a hidden, almost sacred place just above the sea and far beneath the traffic’s thrum…
A degraded view:
The steps have rusted out.
The concrete is broken.
Leaves are scattered on the ground.
A branch of a tree has fallen into the river.
It’s all falling apart, folks!
And it is kinda beautiful….
