At weekend football not everyone was looking at the game

Sculpture "Albatros" Wellington

1985-6 Tanja Ashken


On an early winters morning, on the Wellington waterfront, with storm clouds approaching the rowing club is open and the boys are starting the day with a training session. You have to admire the dedication of our rowers in such freezing conditions. Success comes from hard work and commitment.

The Arrival

Looked to me like an alien craft floating in between the buildings.
Don't let the wires destroy that thought...

Curves & Squares

Civic Center Wellington at 7am on a dull morning before the crowds arrive.
Love the boldness of this building.

Wet Intersection

Little flashes of colour and abstract reflections make an otherwise dull day fun

Grace took this and wanted to be in it as well so she put the shadow of her head in the frame.
Bless her.

A Nice Drop

Still a good beer after all these years

It Can't Be Can It?

Looking out from my hotel on the weekend and checking out the sights and the moon in the sky (second light from the left) when these discs came into view.........

At Last

Thomas played well, got some goals and won player of the day. 
He got to keep the crystal (read plastic) medal for the week but the big moment was the presentation of a free sausage! Now that's the way to a boys heart.....

This is Rob trying to keep her shoes from getting snow on them!
Took her 20 minutes to walk 20 meters!
That's better.
