Good morning from a very cool Hastings morning.

Another week, another challenge by Lens and Pens by Sally. This week is architecture.  Last month on 30th December I did a post on architecture and showed some houses built in the 1920’s down our street.  You can catch it here

So today I have gone for the modern glass buildings at the end of our street.  I have taken quite a few photos of this building as I love the reflections of the sky and other buildings in the glass. Unfortunately it was a bit overcast that day and there is little reflection of the clouds.

This building is on the corner of the our street and the main business district street that runs the length of Hastings.  You an see other smaller commercial buildings reflected in the glass.  It is only a 10 minute walk into the CBD from our house which is great.  We have a very minimal bus system as it is easy to get anywhere.

Here you can check out some other great blogs in this challenge:|

Good evening from a cool Hastings.

This week’s challenge by Sunday Stills is bad weather.  This one has had me stumped.  We don’t get snow where I live, although I have some photos from Austria.  But they are not on my computer.  I am not a fan of snow.  It is rather overrated after a long winter.  I am quite happy to see snow on the ranges behind Hastings and that is as close as I will get.  We have had a couple of days in the past 13 years since I have lived here where it has been cold enough to snow at our level, but the snow disappeared quickly.

Soooo.  What shall I use.  Then I thought of these photos taken of a bad frost on 17th July last year at Pakowhai Park.  Just north of Hastings, on the way to Napier.  It was a really heavy frost but the photos I got that morning justified walking around in the freezing cold.

Here are some other great snowy and thundery photos to check out.
